''The leaders of France and Italy have said Europe's Schengen open-border treaty should be revised''

What is your take on this? Should Europe's border controls be tightened up?

The Schengen treaty allows legal residents of most EU countries, plus Switzerland, Norway and Iceland to travel across the zone with only minimal border checks.

Right I'm gonna ask a really daft question...Would this not just make travel more difficult within the EU for EU citizens? Or is this about Italy and France's stance on immigration from non EU countries? Reply to this

This is really hard for us non-EU residents. So difficult to travel to EU countries. So sad, because I really love Switzerland. Reply to this
