Immigration has become an issue of growing contention throughout all of Europe. Non-Western immigrants are bringing religions, cultures, and lifestyles different from the western nations, and are challenging European culture, tolerance, and society. Because immigration has become a major concern for member states, the European Union (EU) is gaining competency regarding immigration policies. The purpose of this paper is to discuss immigration policies at the supranational level and the effect of such policies for Denmark. This paper explains both the EU's immigration policies, those of Denmark and concludes with the differences between the two, focusing on the area of family reunification.
