Hundreds of Afghan asylum seekers snuck into the UK using British Sikhs’ passports

    Why are they sneaking into Britain, when all they have to do is walk across the Canadian border. AND EVERYTHING IS FREE HERE!

    They are Afghan Sikhs though, not members of the religion that must not be named. As soon as facial recognition software becomes more widely available it will probably solve that problem, turbans or not.

      When that happens, men will decide that the veil is their cultural heritage too.

      Or e-passports with fingerprints, like they have in France. The fingerprints in the passport have to match those of the person entering the country.
