Guest: Josip Paro, Croatian Ambassador to the United States The refugee crisis has placed enormous strain on the European Union and its open border policies – leading some experts to speculate it could be the end of the union. German Chancellor Angela Merkel finds herself at the center of the storm, having led the creation of migrant policies across the region. She faces new pressure to restrict access after a number of asylum seekers were linked to sexual assaults that took place in Cologne on New Year’s Eve. One of the European Union’s newer members – Croatia – is a cross-roads for migrants making their way up from Greece, bound for Austria, Germany and further West.
