How should the EU handle the Migrant Crisis from now?

I am watching the news, currently showing the migrants protesting in Budapest and I'm slightly horrified with the way the EU are handling all the migrants... or are not handling them.

My view point is that genuine Asylum Seekers should be taken into the EU, but it need to be handled properly, unlike the situation now. If I were leading the EU I would;

Temporarily suspend Schengen and close the borders, to re-gain a little control and try to prevent the stream of people determined to get to Germany.

Set up large centres in the countries where the Asylum Seekers are first arriving (Greece, Italy, Hungary etc) to provide shelter, food, medical care and processing etc. They should be held there until processed (not allowed to wander across Europe).

Quotas should be decided as to how many Asylum Seekers each EU country should take based on Current Population and Land Area and wealth of the country.

Once processed Asylum Seekers should be sent to an EU country of the EUs choosing.

How do you think the EU should deal with the situation?
