If you think the Trump administration is trolling with the Nazi 
references, consider this.

In 2016, the government of Denmark passed a law stating that refugees 
must hand over any jewellery in their possession to authorities. The 
justification for this was that it was in payment for future services.

Earlier this year, after the immigration minister Inger Støjberg 
identified Muslims fasting for Ramadan as a 'danger' to Danes, the 
government passed a new law identifying 25 "ghettos" where mainly Muslim 
migrants live, and subjecting them to special measures. In those areas, 
"ghetto children" must are to separated from their parents from the age 
of 1, for 25 hours a week, in order that they can be taught Danish values.

Just the other day, the Danish government announced plans to house 
failed "foreigners who have been convicted of crimes" in a tiny offshore 
island currently laboratories and disease research centres. That's 
right: an island as a prison. One of the ferries serving the island is 
called 'Virus', as if to inoculate the body politic. Støjberg crows that 
these foreigners are unwelcome in Denmark and will feel it.
