Immigrants from non-Western countries create the most integration problems in Denmark, so they should face tougher demands, according to Venstre spokesperson Inger Støjberg.

Støjberg wrote in a Berlingske editorial that Muslim immigrants have the hardest time integrating in Denmark and that it should be an iron-clad requirement that they are either getting an education or have a job before they can stay in the country.

Outrageous
Støjberg pointed to Imam Abu Bilal, a regular speaker at the Grimhøj Mosque in Aarhus, and his statement that Muslims should ask for the help of Allah to kill Jews as evidence that some Muslims are not integrating well.

“That's outrageous, and it casts shame on Islam,” Støjberg wrote in Berlingske.

Støjberg acknowledged that her statements are controversial,

“But if I, as a politician, won’t say it, I do not know who will.”

Venstre hopes to introduce specific requirements for  Muslims in Denmark this coming autumn.
