    UNHCR warns EU not to fragment border rules, Monday meet critical (reuters, Sep 13, 2015)

    “GENEVA, Sept 13 (Reuters) – The European Union must avoid fragmenting into a patchwork of countries with different border rules, which would plunge thousands of refugees into “legal limbo”, the United Nations refugee agency UNHCR said in a statement on Sunday.

    Decisions by a meeting of EU ministers of the interior on Monday would be “even more critical”, UNHCR said. Earlier on Sunday Germany re-imposed border controls after acknowledging it could scarcely cope with thousands of asylum seekers arriving every day.

    French President Francois Hollande and German Chancellor Angela Merkel also discussed the latest developments in the migrant crisis in a phone call late Sunday.

    Two officials and a congressional aide said that Secretary of State John Kerry told members of Congress in a private meeting Wednesday that the United States will boost its worldwide quota for resettling refugees from 70,000 to 75,000 next year, and that number could rise. A fraction of those would be from Syria.

    Kerry said after the meeting with members of the Senate Judiciary Committee that the U.S. would increase the number of refugees it is willing to take in, but he did not give a specific number.
