EU holds up Turkey migrant deal as golden example
Top EU officials and the Dutch PM in an EP debate Tuesday held up the EU-Turkey migrant deal as a model of successful EU action in the face of Brexit. Rutte said this time last year 90 people/month were dying trying to get from Turkey to Greece, compared to fewer than 10/month now. Council chief Tusk said 7,000 people/day were making irregular crossings compared to 50/day after the Turkey accord.
