Denmark will probably tighten its asylum policies further, the country's influential anti-immigration party said Wednesday, a day after lawmakers passed a controversial bill allowing authorities to seize valuables from refugees.The Danish People's Party (DPP) has already reached agreement with Prime Minister Lars Lokke Rasmussen's minority government to retroactively lower social benefits for those granted asylum under the previous center-left coalition, the DPP spokesman on immigration issues Martin Henriksen told AFP.On Tuesday, when Denmark's parliament adopted the reforms aimed at dissuading migrants from seeking asylum by delaying family reunifications by three years and allowing authorities to confiscate migrants' valuables, the government said it had no immediate plans to tighten asylum rules further.In order to pass legislation the right-wing minority government needs parliamentary backing from the DPP, which became Denmark's biggest right-wing party in last year's general election.
