Denmark’s Parliament is scheduled to vote Tuesday on a series of controversial measures curbing refugee rights, including a proposal to confiscate their money and valuables to pay for their stay in asylum centers. Many have compared the measure to the confiscation of property from Jews during the Holocaust. The plan also includes a proposal to delay family reunification for three years. The measures are expected to pass.
