Yesterday the Danish Parliament by an overwhelming majority passed a package of measures in order to deter asylum refugees. Police will be allowed to confiscate personal valuables above $1500 and their families will not be allowed to join them for three years. All this despite protests from the United Nations.
These measures follow activities in other Nordic countries. Swedish police are checking identification papers of passengers travelling between Copenhagen in Denmark and Malmo in Sweden. In the meantime, Norway is trying to send back refugees who crossed over from Russia which won’t take them back.
These are major shock waves hitting the European Union Commissioners who are already trying to prevent Austria, Hungary and Slovenia from blocking Syrian immigrants coming from Macedonia and Greece.
