Do not think that the new law was approved without noise. Still, we are dealing with a "tolerant" and democratic country.
87 MPs voted in favor of the bill, but 27 parliamentarians opposed it. Another abstained. Thus, this is not a unanimous decision.
The law, approved on Tuesday, provides for the withdrawal of those who want to get political asylum in the country and claim social benefits, property whose value exceeds 10 thousand DKK (1340 euro, or 1450 dollars). In fact, it turns out that migrants will partially contain themselves.
Watches, cell phones, laptops - everything will be “handed over” in payment for the stay of refugees in organized centers. The law allows exceptions only for memorable and family things (wedding rings, orders, etc.).
The Danish authorities believe that “expropriatory” measures really have nothing to do with either “Nazism” or “Fascism”, and only equalize migrants with the citizens of the country. The fact is that the indigenous Danes, if they were left without work, are also forced to sell property whose value exceeds the fixed amount. Only after this, unemployed citizens can apply for social benefits.
Even at the discussion stage, the bill was subjected to harsh criticism from human rights activists, local and foreign journalists. However, parliamentarians did not yield. If journalists and human rights activists appeal to emotions, deputies should think in rational categories and think about the material situation of their people. Due to the removal of expensive items, the parliament and the government expect to cover the cost of living in the country of many migrants from the Middle East and from the north of Africa.
The press also recalls that earlier the Danish Parliament approved other innovations that toughen the situation of migrants: the waiting period for permission to reunite with family was increased, it was quite difficult to go through the full procedure of obtaining a permanent residence permit. Finally, refugees were cut benefits.
In 2016, Denmark is expected to receive about 20 thousands of migrants, reports "BBC". TV and Radio Company learned from the Danish Ministry of Integration that this number of migrants per 5 is thousands more than in 2015 year.
Therefore, the authorities claim that the adoption of new laws is necessary to regulate the number of visitors. The number remains high despite the introduction of border controls.
And yet, many people compare the bill with the Nazis confiscation of Jewish property during the Second World War.
The Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees warned, notes "BBC" that the law violates the European Convention on Human Rights, the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child and the UN Convention on the Status of Refugees.
Prime Minister Lars Lokke Rasmussen responded that innovations on migrants had become the most “misunderstood" bill in stories Of Denmark. The BBC reminds us that Rasmussen’s party won the elections in 2015, promising people to “immediately reduce” the influx of migrants.
Whatever the UN says, add on our own, the new law in Denmark will soon come into force.
Denmark has nothing to fear from the UN: other countries are taking similar measures against the crowds of migrants besieging Europe.
Last week, recalls Newsru.com, the authorities of several regions of Germany began to take a "payment for stay" from refugees.
Authorities may confiscate jewels and money from arriving migrants as part of federal law enforcement. A similar practice already takes place in Bavaria. Here, “cash and valuables worth more than 750 euros” can be taken from refugees. And in the federal state of Baden-Württemberg, the authorities can take money and valuables from migrants worth more than 350 euros. That is, it is a more stringent measure, since cheaper things are also being seized.
Actually, Germany is not the first here.
The Bavarian Interior Minister, Joachim Herrmann, specifies Newsru.com, referred to similar rules in force in Switzerland. There, the authorities also enforce federal laws by confiscating property. Asylum seekers are obliged to use their resources first and only then receive state assistance. Moreover, in Switzerland, when receiving work, visitors will have to make deductions to the budget - until they fully repay the debt incurred due to the public funds spent on them.
One of the first states in the eurozone to decide on political action against migrants was probably Norway. In the city of Tromsø, notes TVC, for the first time raised the issue of seizing money and valuables from asylum seekers in payment for their stay in the country.
And another thing: on Monday this week after the meeting of the Ministers of Internal Affairs of the EU countries in Amsterdam, several member countries of the Union declared their intention to extend control on their borders for two years. Reports about it "BBC".
In the meantime, the situation in Finland and Sweden is heating up.
In Sweden, a migrant teenager recently slaughtered an employee of the center for minors in her workplace. And in the city of Västerås, the ten policemen could not cope with an angry crowd of migrants, reports TVC.
Helsinki residents say that as soon as the evening lights come on, migrants leave the centers where they are kept and go for a walk. Builder Raivo Pittka says that these people are defiant.
“There are so many of them ... I am not afraid of them, of course, but women, girls ... Migrants can track down a woman in a poorly populated place and follow her, they need sex. They need sex! ”

Europe is not coping with the influx of migrants, and this is a fact. It is unlikely that new laws will improve the situation: this will not block the flow of refugees. And certainly these innovations will not stop the daring behavior of migrants chasing women through the evening streets of peaceful cities. Rather, it will be the other way around: after the "expropriation", migrants will become even more angry, and a wave of violence will sweep the EU countries.
