Immigration is a hot topic in the country, with a poll by Berlingske finding that 70% of the public believe it to be the most important political issue. The number of those opposing giving residence permits has been growing however, with 37% now disagreeing with giving more, compared to 20% just four months ago.
Over the last month however, the country has faced increased global scrutiny over new proposals, including postponing family reunification to three years and taking the valuables of migrants as payment for their stay.
"The international community must call Denmark out as it enters a race to the bottom,” Amnesty's Deputy Director for Europe and Central Asia, Gauri van Gulik, said of the proposals.
"Denmark was one of the first champions of the Refugee Convention, but its government is now brazenly creating blocks to the well-being and safety of refugee families,” he continued.
Denmark took in some 20,000 refugees last year, a record for the country.
