WRITTEN EXPLANATION OF VOTE (A8-0356/2018)
Temporary reintroduction of border control at internal borders

. – I voted in favour. Six EU Member States retook internal border controls more than three years ago. Many of the prolongations are not in line with the existing Schengen Border Control rules (SBC). SBC ensures EU fundamental rights and freedoms and must be upheld. The Schengen system is one of the greatest achievements of European integration. The possibilities for Member States to prolong internal border controls must be limited in case they are not necessary, and proportionate. There can be serious and persistent threats to security that render the introduction of internal controls necessary. But those border controls have to be temporary and exceptional. Instead of closing the internal borders, the EU Member States should accept their responsibilities and finally agree on a common asylum policy, a common security policy and a true European border and coast guard.
