Unwelcome in Denmark: Parliament to pass hardline migrant bill (part 1)
Issued on: Modified:
Denmark is set to pass a harsh new bill that includes a three-year wait for families to join refugees and the confiscation of valuables above 1340€ for incoming asylum seekers. A socially-liberal Scandinavian country praised for its gender equality, Denmark is one of a number of EU nations witnessing a rise in far-right parties with anti-migrant sentiment winning the day. Will nations who have imposed temporary border controls make them permanent? If so, is it the end of Europe as we know it?
