The European Union has created a rapid reaction force of 1,500 to respond to border crises that arise when the flow of refugees overwhelms local forces.   The new force is an attempt to preserve the Schengen Agreement which allows freedom of movement among the 28 nations in the agreement.  But it also reflects a high degree of frustration over the inability of some of the states to manage the flow of refugees in an orderly fashion.  Some members, however, fear that the new force will have the ability to infringe on their sovereignty.
