French President Emmanuel Macron wants to adjust free travel in the Schengen zone, and he is going to tighten up the controls at the French borders.
He said this on Thursday at the Spanish border. Macron wants to combat illegal immigration and terrorism.
“Networks around illegal migration are often linked to Islamic terrorism,” Macron said.
“The stricter border controls should combat illegal immigration. Terrorism can come from every corner.”
The French president said he might want to discuss stricter measures in the Schengen zone with other countries within the European Union.
