Findings from a new study in Denmark have revealed that as many as one in four Danes believe that Muslims immigrants must leave Denmark.
The study, conducted by the weekly magazine Mandag Morgen (Monday Morning) in partnership with professor Jørgen Goul Andersen, revealed Danes’ belief that mass immigration poses an existential threat to their national identity and culture is the highest it has been in 30 years.
Of those Danes who were surveyed, 28 percent agreed with the statement ‘Muslim immigrants need to leave Denmark’.
Slightly less than half (45 percent), said that they think Muslims should be permitted to stay in the country.
39 percent said that they were ready to deport immigrants immediately if they’re unemployed, while just 32 percent of Danes disagreed with this position.
