Denmark has gone to extreme lengths to let asylum seekers know they are not welcome in the country, taking out adverts in Lebanese media.

The move comes as much coverage and controversy continues for the United Nations as it struggles to deal with the mammoth influx of refugees, reports The Wall Street Journal.

The ads were first published on Monday with the WSJ explaining how it solidifies Denmark’s stance on its tough immigration laws.

“Foreign nationals granted temporary protection in Denmark will not have the right to bring family members to Denmark during the first year,” the ad reportedly says, posted by the Ministry of Immigration, Integration & Housing.

The large amount of people seeking asylum due to turmoil continues to grow, and, closer to home, the issue of whether Australia should or shouldn’t let in more refugees continues to be debated.

Non-governmental organisations (NGO) Save the Children, Oxfam and World Vision have taken out a full-page ad in today’s News Corp publication The Australian, in an appeal to Australia to sign the petition to allow more refugees in.

Similarly, last night saw a social media created event from GetUp!, #LightTheDark, where thousands gathered around the nation in support of refugees, after the tragic photo of drowned boy, Aylan Kurdi, emerged.

The support rallies last night come as Mike Baird, New South Wales Premier, renewed calls for Australia to open up its arms wider.

However, this morning Pauline Hanson appeared on Seven’s morning show Sunrise questioning whether our country should actually let more in.

The Government has said it will accept more refugees from Syria, however it will not go over the humanitarian intake of 13,750 Australia currently undertakes.
