I fully support the Schengen system and I hope that it continues to benefit European citizens for many years to come. I also support the enlargement of the EU and believe that new members should be integrated into the Schengen system in the same way that existing members already are.
However, I feel that over the last few years, Schengen has become ammunition for the eurosceptic Right across Europe. Whether in the context of the refugee crisis or the debate about immigration, it becomes a reason to attack the European project. I feel that the Socialists and Democrats are in a position to defend the advantages of the Schengen system. I wonder how we could go about doing this?
