the Liberal party's president, Jakob Ellemann-Jensen, said in an interview in Weekendavisen, that part refugees probably going to be in Denmark, if the conflict in their countries of origin lasts a very long time.
The much talked about paradigm shift, which was implemented by the former VLAK-government, has as aim that refugees should not be integrated, but will be sent home.
the Interview comes ahead of the party's national convention, which takes place at the weekend.
- If you are fleeing from war, death and destruction in their home country, should you as the point of departure for return, when the situation is over. But it means still that when you are in another country, you must work and take part in the society one is in, says the president.
- If there has been conflict in the home country in 15 or 20 years, and people have children who have grown up here, it makes so sense to talk about return to the country of origin, or does it not?
- the Reality is just that, a part enough come to be, and therefore we must also prepare ourselves for it - among other things, to ensure that they come in to work.
In regard to the recent discussion of the international conventions, arising out of the case of returnees fremmedkrigere, says Jacob Ellemann-Jensen, that the conventions just is important for a small country like Denmark.
He said, however, that 'not everything is set in stone and can never be made'.
Ellemann-Jensen was previously the integration and udlændingeminister Inger Støjberg as vice-president. There has been much talk about whether the two look the same on the udlændingepolitiken.
To Weekendavisen says Jakob Ellemann-Jensen, that he understands why people are looking towards Denmark, if they are from areas that are marked by war and distress.
- It does not mean that they should be here all together. But it does mean that we need to talk properly about and to other people. I am sure that if you ask Inger and me on a number of things, there will be a difference in what we prioritize, and what should fill how much.
- But the differences are not greater, than that we are members of the same party, and that we both stand by the law, as we have both been a part of, he says.
