There's no way to corroborate that. Nonetheless it would be a breath of fresh air if the EU were willing to properly manage the refugee crisis, rather than, as has seemingly happened, allowed them straight in with barely any attempt to check their background.

Don't believe it. They're trying to limit the flow, slow it down because too many come too quick..
But they still want to take in everyone.
