Meanwhile, the juggernaut of the 28-state European Union is moving along at its slow and laborious pace to try and work out a common migration policy while urgent action is needed to deal with the Syrian asylum seekers backing up at its borders. The Central European countries continue to insist on full control of who and how many of the refugees they let in, and Prime Minister Rasmussen of Denmark, elected only months ago on a platform of anti-immigration policies, has just closed the door to asylum seekers in his country and will only allow them to transit to Sweden where they are welcome. Despite Germany's moral leadership (Ô irony!), several EU members continue to oppose, mostly for selfish reasons, a fair distribution of refugees across Europe.
All it takes is political will and a humanitarian spirit. Remember E PLURIBUS UNUM.
