The Impact of the EU Constitution on asylum and immigration
October 28, 2004
The EU Constitution will be the end of any serious attempt to control our own borders. This is the conclusion of a report by think tank MigrationwatchUK issued today.
The report pulls together in one document the complex issues surrounding the future management of asylum and immigration under the EU Constitution to be signed by EU leaders on Friday.
The story so far is crystal clear, said Sir Andrew Green, Chairman of MigrationwatchUK. Our EU partners have simply ignored our views on this subject, knowing that we have an opt out. Having now signed away our veto, our influence on the outcome will be negligible. Talk of shaping Europes policy is just a pipe dream. As migration flows escalate, the EU is cantering off towards chaos and we will be dragged behind, all protests muffled by a huge pile of legislation.
