New EU border control system opens
Text size Aa Aa

The EU’s new border control system opened for business on Monday.

Officials argue that the 144-billion-euro network of helicopters, drones and satellites will reduce cross-border crime and help provide assistance to would-be migrant boats in distress.

But human rights groups counter that it will make Europe a ‘fortress’ and that refugees have more chance of being detected and deported.
