• Danish parliament approves migrant bill


    COPENHAGEN: Denmark’s parliament on Tuesday adopted reforms aimed at dissuading migrants from seeking asylum by delaying family reunifications and allowing authorities to seize valuables, under legislation that has sparked widespread condemnation. The government insists the law is needed to stem the flow of refugees even though Denmark and Sweden recently tightened their borders—a move that prompted Germany and Austria to turn back new arrivals heading for Scandinavia. Approval had been widely expected, as the main opposition party, the Social Democrats, backed the measures as did two small rightwing parties.
