"the masks have fallen. Hand in hand, the European Union and the Frontex want to cancel national sovereignty and take over border controls in the pretext of “safeguarding the Schengen borders”. With controversial claims, they use the case of Greece to create an example that could soon happen “in the border area near you.” And the plan is all German."
It was not paranoia, because according to blockbuster FT report released moments ago, "Brussels is to propose the creation of a standing European border force that could take control of the bloc’s external frontiers — even if a government objected."
As even the otherwise pro-EU FT cautiously notes, "The move would arguably represent the biggest transfer of sovereignty since the creation euro
... the European Commission will unveil plans next week to replace the Frontex border agency with a permanent border force and coastguard — deployed with the final say of the commission, according to EU officials and documents seen by the Financial Times.
The blueprint represents a last-ditch attempt to save the Schengen passport-free travel zone, by introducing the kind of common border policing repeatedly demanded by Paris and Berlin. Britain and Ireland have opt-outs from EU migration policy, and would not be obliged to take part in the scheme.
If the plan is approved by EU states, Frontex’s replacement will have a slew of new powers, including the ability to hire and control its own border guards and buy its own equipment. It will also be allowed to operate in non-EU countries — such as Serbia and Macedonia, which have become transit countries for people trying to reach northern Europe — if requested.
One doesn't have to even be a member of the EU any more to become a vassal state of Brussels.
But the scariest aspect is the following: The new agency will be able to deport people who do not have the right to remain in Europe — a power Frontex lacked. And just like that, the decision of who can and who can't stay in any one European country will be delegated to some faceless bureaucrat in Brussels, circumventing all sovereign laws.

1. Brussels is not Germany.
2. "Britain and Ireland have opt-outs from EU migration policy, and would not be obliged to take part in the scheme."
3. Plans for a EU bordercontrol have been around for a while, heavily pushed by various globalist lobbyists (not even close to "all German") ...and will not pass anyways.

Is it against ATS Terms and Conditions of Use to link to a paywall circumvention?
@Revolution9 there is a copy on Pastebin. You should find it if you search for "EU plans border force to police external frontiers".
I am not liking your source very much. It is just an individual's interpretation on a forum and very messy, too much assumption.
I am glad the EU is creating this new border force. It is very necessary. There needs to be an EU wide response.
Individual nations can not hope to tackle this on their own as has been proven to date.

The whole point of the article is to frighten Europeans into joining "Euroskeptic," ie; nationalist parties. This is part of the Kremlin's scheme to destroy the EU:
