  • By late December of 2015, more than 1 million migrants and refugees had entered Europe.

  • This wave of people, predominantly from the Middle East and North Africa has elicited

  • a strong reaction from many Europeans. Nationalist and right wing groups have been gaining popularity,

  • and reports of mass sexual assault and violence by foreign nationals has Europe’s leaders

  • scrambling. In recent months, countries known for liberal values have taken drastic steps

  • to curb the influx of new migrants. So, what Extreme Measures are EU Countries Taking To

  • Keep Migrants Out?

  • Well, for decades, the EU has notably allowed free travel between a majority of its member

  • countries. This region of unrestricted borders is called the Schengen Area. But as migrants

  • have entered the EU, many have run afoul of the Dublin Regulation, which says asylum seekers

  • must apply for asylum in the first country they arrive. However, many have continued

  • on, travelling to Germany and Sweden. In late January of 2016, the EU threatened to suspend

  • Greece from the Schengen Area entirely, citing Greece’s inability to effectively filter

  • incoming asylum seekers. A number of Schengen participating countries, including Austria,

  • Denmark, France, Germany, Norway, and Sweden, have already enacted border controls. This

  • crisis has many wondering if a borderless Europe will soon be a thing of the past.

  • In particular, Germany has faced considerable criticism for Chancellor Angela Merkel’s

  • refusal to cap the number of migrants. However, Germany, and a number of other countries,

  • have begun deportation, whether to home countries or simply neighboring European countries.

  • Migrants, predominantly from Afghanistan, Morocco, and Algeria have been sent to Austria

  • from Germany, at a rate of roughly 200 a day. Over the course of 2016, Sweden has prepared

  • to expel an estimated 80,000 asylum seekers, based on a rejection rate of about 45%. There

  • have also been plans to send seafaring migrants back to Turkey as they arrive in Greece. But

  • Turkey has only agreed to accept returned migrants on the condition that the EU accept

  • up to a quarter of a million migrants per year.

  • But besides border control and deportation, some countries have turned to more aggressive,

  • and in some ways, disturbing practices. In an effort to deter asylum seekers, Denmark’s

  • parliament recently approved the confiscation of valuables from incoming refugees. For those

  • seeking entry, any cash over roughly $1,500 dollars would be taken to cover the cost of

  • food and lodging in the asylum process. Some have likened this to similar actions by Nazi

  • Germany, which took Jewish belongings during World War II. In Great Britain, a private

  • company in charge of caring for asylum seekers recently cancelled a plan to make refugees

  • wear colored wristbands in order to receive food. This drew comparisons to Jews having

  • to wear armbands identifying them as such.

  • While some actions by European countries are understandable in the wake of unexpected mass

  • migration, there is no question that European, Middle Eastern, and North African leaders

  • need to find a working solution. Until they do, both migrants, and European residents

  • will continue clashing and suffering from this unprecedented crisis.
