immigration law and new danish government

COPENHAGEN, Immigration Minister Inger Stoejberg says “the effect is hopefully” fewer asylum-seekers, calling it “a very clear goal” for the new government, which took office Sunday.

In 2014, 15,000 people sought asylum in Denmark, twice as seen in 2013.

Stoejberg said Wednesday that a single person would get nearly 6,000 kroner ($900) a month instead of 10,850 kroner ($1,625), while a couple over the age of 30 with children would get 16,640 ($2,500) against 28,800 kroner ($4,315).

The aim is  to reduce the number of asylum-seekers by lowering social benefits.

But the proposal must go through parliament. The government has a majority and if passed, the new measure would take effect on the 1st of September.
