European Commission to propose migrant quotas

  • The European Commission is set to propose that EU member nations take in refugees as per a quota scheme, media reports said.

    The migrant policy, which will be announced on Wednesday, comes as 60,000 migrants have already attempted the perilous journey across the Mediterranean to Europe this year. Over 1,800 migrants have lost their lives at sea this year.

    The new policy, which is likely to run into resistance from some European states, will also suggest legal options for migrants coming to Europe.
