Migrants destroy Schengen and the German ruling coalition
Austria temporarily suspended the Schengen agreement and has introduced passport controls at its borders. The reason given was the ongoing migration crisis in Europe. European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker called for Schengen to be saved. Since September 2015, the 8 states of the Schengen area introduced temporary passport controls at its borders. Among them, the largest state in Europe - Germany. In Germany itself the requirement to tighten border controls may lead to a split in the ruling coalition.
