Thousands protest against Danish deportation of Mother and Child

 Danish deportation of Mother and Child

Immigration laws in Denmark have recently come under pressure, and change is now required according to many people. This comes in the wake of the deportation of a young child and her mother who are from Thailand. Branches of the save the children fund are demanding that change happens as well as amnesty international. The laws need to change so that cases like this can never happen again. Social media sites set up petitions in the hope that the protest would change the outcome, over ninety thousand people shown interest in the case but still the two were deported.

When the child’s mother married a Danish citizen. The majority of her life was spent in Denmark. The deportation happened as the immigration services deemed that both the child and her mother no longer had sufficient ties with the country after her Danish citizen step farther tragically died of cancer. The fact the child did not know life in Thailand did not matter to the immigration services, this is why there was so much interest in the case and why two international associations also got involved.

It is reported that the child at the centre of this case expressed her fear of returning to Thailand as she was boarding the flight to Bangkok. She did not understand why her and her mother were being punished and deported, forced to start a new life in Thailand because her father had died. The Danish government passed a “special motion” only a few days after the deportation overturning their initial decision. This again was met with a sense of disgust. The immigration laws should be changed so that this does not happen again not overturn the decision through guilt.

They believe that hearing a small child say that they did not understand the ruling, and so chose to overturn the initial decision was unsatisfactory. Immigration services in Denmark were after all only doing their job and following the rules that are in  place in the country, proving that instead of a knee jerk reaction immigration laws should be changed permanently for cases such as these, especially where children are involved.

Both amnesty international and save the children both agree that the Danish laws on immigration that are currently in place need to be looked at and dramatic changes need to be made at the earliest possible date. To stop any more children and families from suffering  any more.
