Okay, it’s only a little after 9:30 eastern time, but I’m pretty sure this yuuuge story in the Wall Street Journal will not only win the day but will also show up in a Donald Trump speech pretty soon:

Denmark Considers Seizing Valuables From Migrants

By Charles Duxbury

Denmark’s minority government has secured cross-party backing for a highly-controversial plan: Seize cash and valuables from asylum seekers to help meet the cost of their stay in the Nordic country.

The United Nations’ refugee agency has sharply criticized the plan that could be adopted by Parliament as early as next month, calling it a deeply concerning response to humanitarian needs. The agency appealed to Denmark to drop the new measures.

But the Danish government is continuing to press ahead with a number of initiatives that authorities describe as attempts to make the country less attractive to immigrants.

Gee, it’s almost as though Bernie Sanders’s favorite social democracy thinks it has a problem or something.
