Muslim immigrants are flooding Europe and that number is only getting bigger!
Due to EU regulations, European countries have no choice but to let them in, cost be damned!
But Denmark has figured out a way to cover the costs of in-coming migrants.
The Danish parliament has backed a controversial proposal to confiscate asylum seekers’ valuables to pay for their upkeep.
Police will be able to seize valuables worth more than 10,000 kroner (1,340 euros; £1,000) from refugees to cover housing and food costs.
MPs also approved plans to delay family reunions for asylum seekers.
Critics are furious, comparing the measure to the Nazis seizing the property of Jews during the Holocaust.
But Prime Minister Lars Lokke Rasmussen is standing by the legislation:
“This is probably the most misunderstood proposal in the history of Denmark,” he was quoted as saying by Politiken, a Danish daily newspaper. “Looking at the debate, you almost get the impression that we are going to turn people upside down to see if we can shake the last coin out of their pockets. That is completely distorted and wrong.”
Mr. Rasmussen said the bill would merely make the same requirement of refugees that Danish law already does for the country’s citizens — that they must use their own resources before they can qualify for welfare benefits.

I personally think this is a smart and sane move by Denmark. Migrants don’t deserve more benefits from the government than the average citizen.
Denmark previously came under fire for placing an ad in a Lebanese newspaper warning migrants not to come to Denmark.
