As Deutsche-Wirtschafts-Nachrichten reports the EU wants to allow the member states of Schengen to close their borders for two years.
The Civil Rights Group ‘Statewatch’ leaked a proposal for such a move by the European Council. So far the countries were only allowed to close their borders for up to six months in case of ‘extraordinary security circumstances’. According to the proposal by the European Council the countries would be able to close their borders for up to two years now.
