Was Germanys approach to the migrant crisis correct?

[FONT=arial, helvetica, sans-serif]As we know Germany, in short, told migrants coming across Europe, that if they could make it Germany, they would be welcome. Do you feel that this was the right approach to take?[/FONT]

[FONT=arial, helvetica, sans-serif]Personally, I say no, whilst some migrants have benefited from this, the true winners are the people traffickers. I feel its almost created guaranteed income for them, as so many people see hope in getting to Germany and are desperate to do so, that they will pay the price, knowing that once they get to Germany it will be 'ok'. The traffickers make money regardless of it the migrants make it to their destination or not, thats not even an consideration to them. They have no hesitation to over load an already unsafe boat.[/FONT]

[FONT=arial, helvetica, sans-serif]Borders which previously didnt exist (thanks to the Schengen Agreemen[/FONT][FONT=arial, helvetica, sans-serif]t) are now being reinstated and closed off to stop the migrants, whilst nothing is being done to stop the traffickers. [/FONT]

[FONT=arial, helvetica, sans-serif]Equally, it turns out that Germany isnt in a financial position to afford every migrant coming their way, they now have mayors and towns saying that they are on the brink of going
bankrupt.

If Germany had taken Britians approach (stay in a refugee camp in neighbouring countries to Syria) would this have stopped the current crisis of migrants travelling across Europe?[/FONT]
