Calais migrant crisis means ID cards are now “essential”

Remember this from 2 days ago?

Are you angry enough over migrants yet for me to impose the ID laws I’ve got prepared?

Well it’s in the pipeline

Lord Green of Deddington, chairman of Migration Watch

Migration Watch UK said “radical action” was needed and also called for a full search of all trucks as they arrive at Dover.

The think tank, which campaigns for tighter immigration restrictions, said the crisis in Calais is the culmination of “long-standing and growing weaknesses in the immigration system”.

The report said: “In the longer-term we must return to the introduction of ID cards.

French officials have repeatedly claimed the absence of ID cards in the UK and access to the unofficial jobs market are major factors in drawing migrants to Calais.
