Border-free Europe unravels as migrant crisis hits record day

Tuesday, September 15, 2015 | Tag Cloud

(Worthy News) - Two decades of frontier-free travel across Europe unraveled on Monday as countries re-established border controls in the face of an unprecedented influx of migrants, which broke the record for the most arrivals by land in a single day.

Germany's surprise decision to restore border controls on Sunday had a swift domino effect, prompting neighbors to impose checks at their own frontiers as thousands of refugees pressed north and west across the continent while Hungary sealed the main informal border crossing point into the European Union.

A majority of EU interior ministers, meeting in Brussels, agreed in principle to share out 120,000 asylum seekers on top of some 40,000 distributed on a voluntary basis so far, EU president Luxembourg said. But details of the deal, to be formalized on Oct. 8, were vague with several ex-Communist central European states still rejecting mandatory quotas. [ Source ]

  1. And the reach of Islam spreads like the virus that it is... Meanwhile, back at home, XBox and Playstation continues to compete for 1st place occupier of the minds of American children; the almighty dollar and the pursuit of immediate gratification distracts all other citizens as it lures them further and further away from truth. (But as for me and my house.... we will serve the LORD as we understand that to live is Christ and to die is gain. :) )
