Denmark Says No: Will Not Take Any More Middle Eastern Refugees

Danish Integration Minister Inger Støjberg could not have been more clear: her country will not be accepting any of the 160,000 Middle Eastern refugees currently in the European Union resettlement program.

“We will not take part in the 160,000 asylum seekers that shall be distributed. We won’t do it because we have an opt-out [on EU Justice and Home Affairs, ed.] and because we are already taking in a great deal now,” Støjberg said.
