In the Field Our Denmark as the Promised Land (Season's best) Dec 30, 2012 | 53:53Today's special encore holiday episode features a documentary by The Sunday Edition's Karin Wells. "Gatekeepers To A Promised Land" looks at Denmark and how having the toughest immigration laws in the world affects workers there.
