Europe's leaders are scrambling to address a growing migrant crisis as record numbers steam into the region in hopes of escaping violence and political instability across North Africa and the Middle East.
Europe's border agency recorded 340,000 illegal entries into the European Union (E.U.) between January and July, according to European border agency Frontex.
The number of migrants detected at E.U. borders tripled in July from a year earlier at 107,500, marking the highest number of entries in one month since data was first collected in 2008.
