Two Danish journalists with far left roots, have heavily criticised immigration into Denmark. They say the same negative effects can be seen in a lot of other European countries as well.
Mikkel Andersson and Niels Jespersen, two journalists and authors of “The Experiment That Failed”, claim that immigration has made Denmark poorer, less secure and more polarised.
According to Danish newspaper Berlingske, Andersson and Jespersen have far left roots, but have changed their views over time and moved towards the political centre.
Most of their criticism is focused on non-Western migration and economic immigration in Denmark, which costs the government billions per year and has a negative influence.
In the book they write about the negative consequences of immigration which can be seen by gangs wars and parallel societies that are completely isolated from mainstream culture.
But the authors say that in countries like Germany, the Benelux and other Scandinavian countries the phenomenon is present as well.
According to Niels Jespersen it is a mistake to believe that you can take in hundreds of thousands of people with different cultures and expect them to integrate and become similar to the majority.
