Denmark Could Rebel on EU Free Borders

Denmark would defy the European Commission on border checks if need be, Prime Minister Lars Loekke Rasmussen told Parliament on Tuesday. The move marks a new front in some member states’ rebellion on migration policy. His warning comes after the Commission said on May 2 that Austria, Denmark, Germany, Norway, and Sweden – all Schengen members – could extend border checks for six months, but that this would be the last time they were allowed to do so. Rasmussen said the amount of people coming from Africa to Europe was "much, much too high" to reopen borders.
