Border controls won't save us from enemy within

At their meeting in Brussels on Friday the EU interior and justice ministers agreed on a counterterrorism package that includes tighter controls on the EU's external borders, also for EU citizens. The daily 24 Chasa doubts the measures will help: "Are we seriously supposed to believe that this will discourage the terrorists? As we saw after the attacks in Paris, many of them had legitimate French and Belgian passports. They were citizens of Schengen countries! The problem of the rich EU countries isn't the open borders. The problem is that for the last few decades they have been letting in migrant workers from Islamic countries without sufficient controls. Clearly they haven't been able to integrate them properly."
