The objective of this paper is to examine how the topic of immigration law and the current refugee crisis is articulated in the public debate, and if this by including underlying structures of marginalization can influence the way the public think, talk and act regarding to this. The subject field of this examination is a TV-programme “Debatten”. Through a discourse analysis and theories about marginalization, this paper will suggest that structures of marginalization are presented in the discourse of the public debate. The paper examines concepts of prejudices, stereotypes, and minorities in order to unfold this issue. By investigating how the discursive construction of “the Danish” and of “the Immigrant” appears, and how the gap between the two are presented, these structures and processes of marginalization appears. The subject field is a TV-programme, therefore it is impossible to conclude anything empirical, but these processes and structures are to be detected in the programme and when looking at occurrences in the society.
