Germany Reinstates Border Controls To Stem Migrant Influx
SALZBURG, AUSTRIA - SEPTEMBER 14: Migrants from Syria wait on a railway platform at Salzburg Hauptbahnhof railway station in the hope of catching a train to Germany on September 14, 2015 in Salzburg, Austria. Railway connections between Germany and Austria have at times been cancelled in the last 24 hours, leading to confusion and uncertainty among migrants attempting to reach Germany. German authorities announced they are temporarily reinstating border controls along Germany's border to Austria in order to stem the recent massive influx of migrants and uphold the Dublin agreement. Tens of thousands of migrants arrived in Germany over the last few weeks and the country is struggling to find adequate accommodation for them all. By enforcing the Dublin agreement, which requires migrants applying for asylum to register in the first EU country they enter, German authorities are hoping for a broader distribution of arriving migrants across EU member states.
