 AGAINST (+) The ongoing cross-border security threats from terrorists and secondary movement from irregular migrants have meant that some Member States have been reintroducing internal Schengen borders for temporary periods. The restrictive time limits of a maximum of six months were to be increased to one year under the Commission proposal to allow for ongoing security concerns. The rapporteur wanted shorter time limits (initially 2 months, extendable to maximum one year), greater justification before ongoing closure is approved, and a regular Commission review. This was approved in October 2018 in Committee, and the November 29 plenary vote, which narrowly passed, brought it back to Committee for trilogues. After two trilogues failed to reach any compromise, this regulation has been brought back for the closure of the first reading. The DPP-Delegation has consistently opposed it on the basis that it restricts Member State sovereign security measures against secondary movement of irregular migrants and terrorists.
