In this textJRS Europe, together with the Christian Group, presents its comments and recommendations on the European Commission’s proposal for a regulation on introducing a Pre-Entry Screening at the EU external borders and the amended proposal for an Asylum Procedures Regulation introducing new forms of border procedures.  

We express our numerous moral and legal concerns on the texts and strongly recommend to the EU legislators to depart from this proposals and rather refocus on an EU asylum and migration legislation that ensures fair asylum procedures and the respect for human dignity.
