(Washington Times) Switzerland agreed to limit the level of immigrants allowed from the European Union beginning this May, adding to caps that are already in place for eight other central and eastern states.

The limits will remain in effect for a year, the BBC reported. And EU officials aren’t happy.

Catherine Ashton, EU foreign police head, said the limits ignore “the great benefits that the free movement of persons brings to the citizens of both Switzerland and the EU,” the BBC reported.
