PRI : The 'Love Bridge' for immigrants Between Sweden and Denmark


'In Denmark, restrictive family immigration laws often prevent young Danes from marrying and living in the country with non-European spouses. One of the consequences of this law is that it has forced many second-generation immigrants to leave Denmark, and start from scratch as immigrants in a new country. Assia Boundaoui reports on the "love bridge" that unites Sweden and Denmark.'

'“I am well educated, I have never done anything against the law, I have always been straight. So, why do they treat people like us that way? Of that I was very angry, even colleagues at my work were like ‘how could they kick you out?’ That's really, really sad,” she said.'
