      Due to the abuse of free travel by certain exponents such as Terrorists travelling freely between one country to another, making it impossible for authorities to check who’s crossing countries, I do believe that for security and safety reasons to locals, some stricter controls will be in order. The Dublin agreement whilst having good values for citizens in the E.U. to travel freely between them, is being abused from non E.U. citizens. So I for one, believe that temporary security measures have and must be taken to safeguard the European citizens.
