EU border agency warned of migrant terror threat 18 months ago – but nothing was done

Frontex, the European border agency, warned more than 18 months ago that radicalised European jihadis could exploit the migrant crisis in order to return to Europe and commit terrorism, but systematic checks on migrants only began last Friday, The Telegraph can reveal.

The failure of Europe’s border bureaucracy to respond to the terror threat emerged as security sources told The Telegraph that it will still be “months, even years” before Europe’s borders are fully capable of screening arrivals.

      The EU is a big ship with 28 hands on the wheel.
      A fleet of small ships was more responsive.

    They don’t need to screen arrivals, they just turn them away.

    Most right thinking people knew this was coming decades ago when the EU was proposed, then agreed to.

    Something WAS done:
    They ramped up the pro-immigrant propaganda machine.
