Denmark’s tightening of immigration policy causes concern for Syrian refugees • FRANCE 24 English

FRANCE 24 English published this video item, entitled “Denmark’s tightening of immigration policy causes concern for Syrian refugees • FRANCE 24 English” – below is their description.

Last month, Denmark's parliament voted a law allowing it to send asylum seekers to reception centres outside the European Union. Rwanda is among the potential host countries the Danes are negotiating with. It's the latest move in a tightening of Denmark's immigration policy. Copenhagen is already the only capital in Europe to have deemed the region around the Syrian capital Damascus to be sufficiently safe to send refugees from the area back there.
