    "Demonstrative exercises complete the process of closing the borders is already taking place between Slovenian and Croatian, as well as between Serbia and Macedonia," the interlocutors today.

    According to them, this means that it is already begun severely profiling refugees.

    "Are they from a war zone, whether their family members already in the territory of the European Union; check dialects, stricter control documents ... These are measures that already carry", says our source.

    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.

    Declaring that borders will close by a certain date will cause migration to surge before that date, as people try to come in before borders close

    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.
