Illegal immigrants ‘exploiting Common Travel Area’

Britain’s National Criminal Intelligence Service has said in its 2005 UK Threat Assesment that illegal immigrants are exploiting the Common Travel Area with Ireland.

This statement obviously has implications for the debate about the future of the Common Travel Area sparked by the British Government’s identity cards plan (as UTV notes in its report)

The NCIS statement will also no doubt form part of the British Government’s case for its e-borders scheme, which the Irish Government has said has signification implications for the future of the Common Travel Area.
