Immigration Controls

Comment 6th August 2010

In the 1970s I travel from England to France on a regular basis on the return journey you were required to see an imigration officer on the boat if you were from outside the UK you would be challenged as to why you were coming to the UK and had to prove that you had the means to support yourself. On several trips people were refused entry had to stay on the boat and were returned to France. I know that some people who are reading this will think that they were all non white, Well sorry to disapoint you there were several Americans. This was a system that worked the last time I was in the USA they operated a similar system.

Why does this matter?

It proves that this country could control its borders if it wanted to.
