UK-Ireland border checks proposed

The first formal border checks between the UK and Ireland in more than 80 years have been proposed by the two governments.
London and Dublin outlined plans for identity checks on travellers that could involve a full passport inspection.

Immigration checks between the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland will also be stepped up to catch non-British and non-Irish nationals who travel illegally between the two countries, the paper said.

I see this as a positive step, most of our illegal immigrants come in through Britain.
