Danish police seize thousands in cash from migrants under new law aimed at making country less attractive to invaders

Danish police have seized valuables from migrants for the first time since introducing a controversial new law aimed at making the country a less attractive destination for asylum seekers.

National police spokesman Per Fiig said that two men and three women were carying dollars and euros worth 129,600 kroner (£14,400).

The cash was sezied and they were all arrested at Copenhagen’s airport for using forged passports.

    Drip, drip, drip. I call this the drip approach. If you are serious about making the country less attractive, how about border control and in fact refuse them entry in the first place.

    I wonder if the Mideast Chritians, Yazadis and Kurds are facing the same scrutiny?
    Hopefully they’ll be treated more lenient lyrics as they’ll integrate better

    Once word gets back, they’ll just stop before crossing the border and send the money by informal money transfer, the hawala system.

    The way to make a country less attractive to invaders is to stop accommodating them.
