Austria and Denmark propose curfew in Muslim areas
Both Austria and Denmark are taking strict measures against foreigners in general and against young migrants in particular.

In Austria, the new conservative government wants to house the newcomers in empty barracks and have them locked up in the evening.
During the open asylum procedure, “refugees” must report to the barracks at a certain hour, Vice-Chancellor Heinz-Christian Strache told ORF broadcaster’s programme Wien Heute.
Strache told a press conference on Friday that the government has no plans to provide “mass accommodations” for migrants. He is a member of the ÖVP.
“It will no longer be possibel for migrants who have never worked here a single day or paid anything into the social system to get thousands of euros in welfare!” Strache told his followers on Facebook.
Migrants must hand over their cash and their mobile phones to the Austrian authorities on arrival. The phones are used to reconstruct their escape routes.
In Denmark, Danish People’s Party, the Dansk Folkeparti, is also in favor of a curfew. The party supports the government coalition, although it is not part of the coalition.
Conservative lawmakers have proposed a seven-point plan to crack down on rising crime in such “no-go zones” including legislation to establish curfews for children under the age of 18 in Muslim ghettos.
The plan includes a suggestion that unsupervised Muslim children living should be off the streets by 8 pm in order to prevent migrant children from getting involved in street gangs.
The bill also includes deploying additional law enforcers to Muslim migrant areas to crackdown on crime. Conservative politicians have also warned that asylum seekers are linked to the growing threat of Islamic State (ISIS).
Prime Minister Lars Lokke Rasmussen said in a speech last week that some ghettos will be physically bulldozed.
Other suggestions is a moratorium on the construction of mosques with minarets, because of the “divisive symbolism”. Instead, Muslims will be encouraged to pray in unmarked spaces, such as “warehouses and offices”.
Denmark has also introduced new laws to ensure child migrants learn the country’s language. If they refuse, their parents will stop receiving state benefits.
Three-year-olds from migrant families who do not go to a Danish preschool, are currently given a language test. They are assigned to extra language training if they are found to be lacking.
In the case where parents refuse extra training and the child is not sent to preschool, their child benefits will be withdrawn.
Denmark has replaced state benefits with integration benefits for migrants. Payments to migrants are halved until they have fulfilled certain requirements.
The deputy leader of the anti-immigration Danish People’s Party, Soeren Espersen, has meanwhile called for a six-year ban on Muslim migrants entering the country.
