BRUSSELS wants to put a lid on the migrant crisis by inviting even more of them into mainland Europe, according to reports.
The immigrants could also be granted the right to work.
The controversial plans come after EC president Jean-Claude Juncker repeatedly said EU leaders need to “open the door” to migrants otherwise they will simply “break in through the window” – despite 206,000 immigrants flocking to the continent in the first five months of 2016 alone.
Eurosceptics have branded the EC’s plans “insane” and expressed concerns about what could happen if Britain decides to stay in the EU.
Tory MEP David Campbell-Bannerman said: “The European Commission is piling yet more fuel on to the fire, whilst sending us the bill for the crisis in a budget postponed until after the referendum.
“These latest proposals show just how dangerous it is for our security and economy to stay in the EU. Brexit would liberate us from such insanity.”

“Having comprehensively failed to come up with a long-term strategy, the plan appears to be to open our borders ever wider.
“It’s an unholy mess that presents serious security risks as well as all the other pressures that increased migration flows would bring.”
The Commission is said to have also planned to spend £6.2billion over four years on deals with countries including Mali, Niger, Nigeria, Senegal and Ethiopia.
