Danish Parliament Considers Bill to Take Migrants’ Valuables to Pay for Benefits
The Danish parliament is considering a bill to seize migrants’ valuables to pay for their benefits.
The leftists are very upset about this commonsense legislation.
Daily Sabah reported:
A controversial Danish bill to seize migrants’ valuables to pay for their stay in asylum centers looks set to pass in parliament after the government on Tuesday secured a parliamentary majority.
Parliament was set to begin a series of debates on the bill yesterday, ahead of a vote on Jan. 26. Faced with a storm of criticism, Prime Minister Lars Lokke Rasmussen, whose right-wing Venstre party is behind the plan, called it “the most misunderstood bill in Denmark’s history.”
His minority government and its right-wing allies, the far-right Danish People’s Party (DPP), the Liberal Alliance and the Conservative People’s Party, reached an agreement on the bill on Tuesday with the opposition Social Democrats, meaning it is now supported by a majority of parties in parliament.
The amended bill would allow Danish authorities to seize migrants’ cash exceeding 10,000 kroner ($1,450), as well as any individual items valued at more than 10,000 kroner.
