European Union leaders are facing a crisis over the future of its member states, and there’s growing concern that their political leaders are using the bloc’s new-found autonomy to push through their plans.
The European Parliament is set to vote on a proposal on Monday to allow members to choose the rules that will govern their borders and the way their states are governed.
The proposal would give EU governments the power to set up their own borders, a move that has been a key demand of many member states and has been rejected by many European countries.
But with so much at stake, many members are being pushed into a corner.
POLITICO’s Adam Goldman explains how the EU could collapse.

But there’s another piece of legislation that could cause a political crisis in the EU — the proposal to allow countries to set their own border controls.
The new legislation could make it harder for the EU to enforce its borders.
As the European Commission pointed out in its analysis of the new proposal, member states would still be able to enforce border checks on their own.
But if their border controls were too strict, that would undermine the EU’s economic and security interests.
The proposal comes after years of EU-wide border controls, which the European Parliament and many member countries have criticized.
Some member states have been demanding border controls for years, but the new proposals would mean that many of them will have to do it alone.
“This proposal would open the Pandora’s box for member states that would want to introduce their own policies, which is a bad idea,” said Daniela Viana, a researcher at the European Centre for Democracy and Electoral Integrity.
“The EU is struggling with how to respond to the rise of populism and nationalism, as well as the potential for new threats in the 21st century, and this is just the beginning of that process.”
The new proposal comes amid a crisis for the European project.
The bloc is struggling to deal with a surge in migrants arriving from the Middle East and Africa, and its citizens have become increasingly dissatisfied with the economic performance of the member states.
The EU has been trying to tackle the migration crisis by building a border fence along its borders with Greece and Italy, and by allowing member states’ own borders to be set up.
But the proposals could also cause a rift within the bloc.
The Commission, the executive body of the European Council, has repeatedly warned against creating “unworkable” borders, and it has warned against a blanket ban on migration from the bloc that could be used as a means of restricting the flow of refugees and migrants.
The Commission has also been warning that it would prefer that member states open their borders to migrants as a way of reducing the flow and increasing the likelihood of a return to the “old days” of border control and policing.
In other words, the EU may end up having to choose between its own interests and those of the members of the bloc and its own citizens.
A member state could choose to allow borders to remain open to the entire bloc as long as its border controls are stricter than those in the rest of the EU, the Commission said.
That could create a situation where the entire EU has to choose which member state to accept refugees and which to deport migrants.
That could leave member states in a difficult situation, as it could mean that the only countries in the bloc to have the same security and prosperity as the rest are those member states with stronger border controls — a position that the Commission has called for the creation of a “safe zone” in the southern Mediterranean Sea to prevent migrants from reaching Europe.
The current proposals have sparked a massive debate within the EU over the benefits of letting member states decide how to govern their own internal borders.
The debate, which began in 2013 when the Commission proposed to impose a quota system on member states based on the size of their populations, has continued, with different member states voting on the issue in different ways.
Some members of parliament have also tried to limit the size and number of countries that can apply for the quotas, while others have argued that they are unnecessary and that they could make the system more complicated.
The European Commission argues that the current proposal would make it easier for member countries to enforce borders and would strengthen the bloc as a whole.
The commission says the quotas would help to reduce the number of refugees arriving on the continent and would also create jobs in the region, particularly in the agricultural sector.
It says the proposal will be a benefit to the economy and the stability of the Schengen area, which currently provides a common border for more than 120 countries.
The plan has been supported by nearly all the countries that have applied for the quota system, and some of them, like Hungary, have already signed up to the scheme.
But the commission says it will not use the quotas as a mechanism to restrict the migration of migrants.In
