Illegal alien invader crisis: European Council president Tusk warns Schengen on brink of collapse

Today, the European Council president warned that Europe faces a “race against time” to save the Schengen free-travel zone, as a plan to halt the influx of migrants from Africa unravelled and Sweden became the latest EU state to implement border controls.

“Saving Schengen is a race against time and we are determined to win that race. Without effective control on our external borders, the Schengen rules will not survive,” said Donald Tusk.

“Time is running out,” he added later.

    It’s too late the EU is a failure as far as being good for its citizens goes…. it’s been a success for the far left open border types

      A “success” that ironically, is unraveling. The same “success” that the Soviets were forced to watch unravel in the late 1980s…

    I love the “from Africa” p.c.-speak. The Telegraph: The Guardian with better proofreading.

  • When I saw that picture, all I could think of was that European razor-wire companies have had a boom in business.

    Good for them.

      Germany refused to sell razor wire to Hungary when they started building their fence. I’m sure others are doing the same.

        Of course they refused, they will need all of it for Germany and they will get a much better price from the German government when the shit really hits the fan. Good management decision by the company.

      • Well, some Hungarian company must be raking it in.

    Good riddance to Schengen and even better riddance to the EU when it goes belly up.

    An economic union was a good idea. A political one was not. But now matter what sort of union was conceived, with the Left in charge, it would get screwed up.

    might wanna have some armed drones to help it all long

  • FactsWillOut

    The entire EU idea was a farce from the get-go.
    Only an idiot would think Greece and Germany should have the same currency.

  • Hard Little Machine

    Schengen will survive because the EU and the Schengen area wants it to survive. This is all talk about protecting borders. It means nothing. They’ve stomped on the gas pedal and they’re headed off the cliff singing songs of brotherhood and terrorism.
