EU calls Schengen area to lift internal border controls ASAP

On Friday, EU Migration Commissioner Dimitris Avramopoulos called on all member states to lift all internal border controls as quickly as possible, by December 2016 at the latest.

Avramopoulos also warned that failure to do so would cost the European economy up to 19.7 billion U.S. dollars a year, equivalent to 0.13 percent of the bloc’s economic output.
