DAILYKENN.com -- The patriot-nationalist government in Denmark is working to resolve the problem of criminal aliens: banishment.
Rather than deport known criminals, the government is segregating them to an facility at an uninhabited island.
It's not as bad (or good) as it sounds. The criminals are required to check in at night taking a ferry from the mainland to the detention facility.

Foreign criminals sentenced to deportation are to be banished to a remote island off the coast of Denmark, the country's government has announced.
Finance minister Kristian Jensen said the criminals will be detained at a facility on Lindholm, an uninhabited seven-hectare island in the province of Vordingborg.
The tough scheme was set up as part of an agreement between Denmark’s conservative coalition government and its anti-immigration ally, the Danish People’s Party (DF).
The DF's official Twitter account celebrated the announcement by publishing an animated cartoon which shows a dark-skinned man being dumped by a ship on a desert island.
A spokesman for the party said: "Foreign criminals have no reason to be in Denmark. Until we can get rid of them, we will move them to the island of Lindholm, where they will be obliged to stay at the new deportation centre at night.
"There will be police there around the clock."
The Lindholm facility will house rejected asylum seekers who have been convicted of crimes, as well as foreign citizens who do not have permission to stay but cannot be deported for legal reasons.
For example, some of those due to be detained at the facility are stateless, while others come from countries which do not have a readmission agreement with Denmark.
“They will not be imprisoned,” Mr Jensen told Danish news agency Ritzau.
“There will be a ferry service to and from the island, but the ferry will not operate around the clock, and they must stay at the departure centre at night. That way we will be better able to monitor where they are."
