Or should we just let these people in and allow the hatred they cause...

Political correctness gone truly insane, that's the EU migrant crisis in a nutshell. EU citizens are being asked to accept a clearly false reality. They're being asked to blindly accept the fantasy that all these Muslims will seamlessly integrate and coexist peacefully. In literally every EU country that has a large amount of Muslims, there are some major issues relating to that dynamic. But, you're a racist if you notice that obvious, glaring fact. Political correctness gone insane.
And more FUD.. Angela Merkel is just the German president, she's in no way in any position to dictate anything. The EU is run by all EU nations, not by just one.
Rather than terrorism and ideas about lack of integration, which are all valid concerns to have, I think alot of people I know and come into contact with are worried about logistically what will happen. There isn't the housing to manage the current growth in population, never mind an unexpected influx. There are tens of thousands of people currently living in substandard housing and many without a home at all. Short falls in health care. Zero hour wage contracts and council facilities falling terribly short of what they should be. The chronically ill and disabled have been let down by the welfare system which itself pleads poverty and abandons support behind private corporations absolved of responsibility.
Nope, different countries have different rights through agreed opt-outs.

This is not just theory - this is actually how things are done. All member nations have the same rights. It's not like there is a secret pow-wow each month where the "old" EU members gather to decide for the others.

15,600 families in England were made homeless since 2010. That's over 56,000 people (having just looked at the figures). More needs to be done before we can think about housing anyone else. As for what we've done to help, thats been the whole point hasn't it? Why we've sent our soldiers abroad?
