Powerline blog reports that it appears that The Danes are fed up with foreign-born criminals awaiting deportation:
Here in America, we can’t seem to deport even the most vicious of criminals–not so they will stay deported, anyway. In Denmark, the Telegraph reports, people are fed up. I don’t think the article is available online to non-subscribers, so I will quote it:
Foreign criminals awaiting deportation from Denmark will be banished to a deserted island, the government has announced.
Rejected asylum seekers who have committed crimes will be detained at a facility on Lindholm, an uninhabited, seven-hectare island in the province of Vordingborg, one and a half miles from the mainland.
It will also house foreigners who do not have permission to stay but cannot be deported for legal reasons, such as stateless people and those from countries which do not have a readmission agreement with Denmark.
The Danes seem to have taken an interest in their own self-preservation, unlike so many Americans
