European Governments Hold “Secret” Meeting To Dismantle Borderless Travel

Over the past three months, we’ve looked on as the Schengen Agreement – under which 28 EU nations operate open borders – unravels in the face of the overwhelming flow of refugees fleeing the war-torn Mid-East.

The disintegration of Europe’s passport free travel dream began in early September when Hungarian PM Viktor Orban constructed a razor wire fence along his country’s border with Serbia. Serbia isn’t a Schengen member country, but the fence marked a turning point in the way Europeans thought about the worsening migrant crisis. Orban insisted that the only way to preserve Europe’s “Christian heritage” was to limit the flow of Syrian asylum seekers into the bloc and in a series of fence clashes with refugees, Orban proved he was serious by deploying water cannons and tear gas.

Serbia then promptly diverted the people flow into Croatia which is doing its best to handle the influx. From Croatia, the migrants make their way north through Slovenia into Austria and, ultimately, into Germany.

Earlier this month, Slovenia expressed concerns that if Austria and Germany took steps to slow migrants down (steps like beefed up border checks), tens if not hundreds of thousands of refugees could get stuck. With winter fast approaching, Slovenian authorities warned that the country did not have the capacity to accommodate the asylum seekers, setting up the potential for a humanitartian crisis. So, Slovenia built a fence along its border with Croatia. Once again, Croatia is not (yet) a Schenghen member but the die as they say, was cast.

Sure enough just days later, Austria began to build a mesh barrier on its border with Slovenia – it was the first fence between two members of the passport-free zone.
