A report from the government of Denmark has concluded that the nation’s restrictions on immigration have saved the country 6.7 billion Euros.
“Now that we can see that it does matter who comes into the country, I have no scruples in further restricting those who one can suspect will be a burden on Denmark,” the center-right liberal integration minister, Søren Pind, told the Jyllands Posten newspaper.
Leftists did not dispute the figures, but protested that the study undermined “equality.” Facts usually do.
Many American left-libertarians, remembering their own ancestors, would protest that immigration actually adds money to the nation’s economy. The study in Denmark actually proves this is the case — if the immigrants are from other Western nations.
Western immigrants added 295 million Euros to government revenue, while non-Western immigrants that made it to Denmark (already a selective sample considering the nation’s immigration policies) cost the government billions.
If you want to cut government, cut immigration.
