Moria Inferno aggravates the refugee question: Von der Leyen wants to abolish Dublin rules
The previous Dublin rules stipulate that the EU country in which the refugee is responsible is generally responsible for asylum applications first enters European soil. This led countries to the External borders of the Union in the refugee crisis overloaded and then often allowed migrants to travel on to other EU countries.
Since then, the EU has been striving to reform its asylum system. All attempts so far have been on the question of Distribution of refugees failed. In particular Eastern European Governments refuse to accept migrants categorically to relieve the main arrival countries at the EU’s external borders such as Greece or Italy.
