Discussions About Denmark’s Tough Immigration Laws

Swedish Migration Minister Tobias Billström was in Copenhagen Monday for talks with his Danish counterpart Rikke Vilshöj.

Sweden, along with a number of other countries and international organizations, has been strongly critical of Denmark’s highly restrictive immigration policies. That includes a law that makes it very difficult for Danes to marry immigrants, and Billström took up the issue of families forced by the legislation to move to adjacent Sweden.

Billström says the question affects the entire Nordic region. However, no immediate results seem to have come from the discussions.
