Following the latest in a wave of Islamic terror attacks across the globe, many leaders throughout Europe are becoming emboldened in their opposition to the continent’s liberal open border policies. Much like in the United States, Europe is being flooded by a surge of immigrants and refugees, and much like in the United States, many of its citizens are fed up.
