In Topic: Do Denmark discriminate foreigners?

<The whole system is a joke. It seems like my own nation is in a state of panic and is acting illogical.>


I agree, many new legislation just seem like they are bored and have to think of new laws in order to keep them self seated..

Unfortunately there are more rules/laws being made than being removed - we move towards living in a big bowl in the fear that we may drive over 20mph and kill everyone! 


Or another way of saying it, they only know how to tighten the laws until we all suffocate.. or at least it feels like this..

Only a danish test foreigners have to take, but I cant remember when they take it. 


They have to answer question about danish history and general laws i believe..


Perhaps when they leave the asylum centers?!

<Well I get a letter saying my son's mother language is NOT Danish, what do you think?>


You are assuming that this letter is not an accident and that it shouldn't have been sent to you. But you have already specified that you talk with the government and they apologized for the letter as you clearly didn't fall into the group the letter was meant for.  


Stop being so emotional about an error. Having said that, I do think the government should strive to be better at sending these kinds of letters to the correct recievers, such as to spare you the huge grief you obviously have experienced. But please don't stop the discussion I think it very interesting and necessary to have..

If you are from Denmark, then i don't know why you are surprised, you should know by now that the danish government is really bad at handling social stuff. ;)

I think Samoth is spot on...


I'm from Denmark and native. 

The issue is that some foreigners, especially the Muslims, never let they children go to school, instead they do home teaching and these children may have serious language issues later in life when they need to find a job in Denmark. 


It basically comes down to, as Samoth also commented, we try to protect the future of our country in terms of workforce and making sure our money isn't wasted on fostering people who don't want/capable of contributing to the country later in life. Having said that, I am sorry that you should receive such a letter when it was clearly not needed, but we are only people and they acted on what they knew - in this case they knew to little about you and your family situation.
