Criticism of continued border controls

A necessity ? Or a by default continuous track ?
The Swedish radio said that the government decided to extend the border controls around Sweden for another six months. But in the EU Parliament, S and MP want to limit the possibility of extending border controls.

The analysis of the radio went on by saying that :

· In the EU Parliament, the Social Democrats and the Green Party voted to limit the possibility of border controls.
· But in Sweden the government parties yesterday decided for another extension.
· "It is very easy for countries to continually extend internal border controls," said EU MP Jakop Dalunde (MP).
"We voted in favor of clarifying the current legislation so that the possibility of introducing temporary border controls for today is limited, so it is very easy for countries to constantly extend the internal border controls," says EU MP Jakop Dalunde (MP).

But starting from the basic pillar of the union, revolving around “ Free movement is one of the pillars of EU cooperation” : do Border controls must be around the Union, but not between member countries ?

In exceptional circumstances, countries may establish internal temporary border checks for a maximum of two years.

Sweden introduced border controls at the refugee crisis in autumn 2015, and has thus had them for three and a half years.

The EU Commission has criticized Sweden for this, and the European Parliament has on several occasions voted to tighten up the rules for when Member States may introduce temporary border controls.

Around a month ago, on April 4 this year, Parliament voted, among other things, that the maximum time limit for border controls should be limited from two to one year.

How all individual parliamentarians voted then is not published.

When the issue of tightening up the rules on internal border controls would arise in the EU Council of Ministers, the Swedish government pushed to stop the proposal. The government took with it a majority and thus managed to block the initiative.
