The European Union has been beset by a refugee crisis, with thousands of undocumented migrants, mainly from the Middle East and North Africa, arriving in EU member states, fleeing violence and poverty in their home countries.

Since the beginning of 2015, over 340,000 refugees and migrants arrived at the EU borders, according to the EU external border agency Frontex.
