This morning’s Le Figaro’s headline: “Les migrants font voler en eclats L’espace Schengen.”
Schengen refers to the 26 country European agreement to eliminate passport and immigration controls at their joint borders. The agreement allows citizens of these 26 European countries to travel in and out of these 26 countries as if in one country.
The thinking then was that Schengen zone countries cherished the right to migrate internationally sans limitations. It was thought that such free movement formed the basis of fundamental human rights.
No Mas! Shengen is a product of the pre-middle-eastern invasion and dislocation. The Afghan, Iraq and Libyan invasions, sharing little in the way of consideration for unintended consequences, has led to a veritable tsunami of fleeing Islamic immigrants. Here in Paris the tone has changed and changed fast. French citizens have awakened, as have the Danes, Hungarians, Pols, and certainly the British.
The European Union and the euro are now at risk due to Germany’s Angela Merkel’s setting no cap on the horde of Muslim immigrants being allowed into Germany. This “wide open” borders position is being angrily contested by much of Europe and is fast leading to what is almost certain to be an acrimonious European immigration showdown.
