Danish Integration Minister Mattias Tesfaye has stated that his dream goal is no new asylum seekers in Denmark, saying that the current asylum system is “immoral”.
Tesfaye, a member of the Social Democrats who comes from a migration background himself, has been a proponent of having asylum seekers processed in African countries, rather than in Denmark itself.
“My dream is zero asylum seekers in Denmark,” he told Swedish news website Bulletin, adding: “I believe that the existing European asylum system cannot be defended either morally or politically.”
“The asylum system is being used for migration on a scale that our welfare society cannot absorb, and it challenges cohesion in Denmark. That is why we have to bring asylum immigration under control,” he said.
