EU urged to secure borders from ‘millions’ of migrants

The EU’s president urged leaders gathering for an emergency summit Wednesday to stop fighting over a refugee quota deal and take urgent action to secure the bloc’s borders in the face of “millions” of migrants. After ministers forced through a deal to relocate 120,000 refugees in the teeth of opposition from eastern states, Hungary’s hardline prime minister angrily denounced Germany’s “moral imperialism”. Slovakia furiously vowed to dispute the quota deal in court, underscoring the deep divisions that have emerged over Europe’s biggest migration crisis since World War II.
