Czech police IDs migrants by writing numbers on their arms in ink

Is Europe's Migrant Crisis Threatening Schengen?

While the debate around the issue of immigration intensifies in Europe, Czech authorities have been adopting some controversial methods to limit the flux of migrants headed into the E.U.

According to The Independent, police have been removing refugees from trains on their way to Germany and have written registration numbers on their arms in ink. Czech media posted photos of the officers marking the individuals with permanent markers.

Governor of Southern Moravia Michal Hasek commented that authorities "are preparing for what would occur if the wave of migrants increased." Europe is expecting a big wave of migrants this year, with Germany single handedly waiting for 800,000 people to process through its borders.
