Immigration Minister visits the USA

During the visit Damian Green said that “Existing agreements allow us to share fingerprints taken for immigration purposes and match these against each others’ immigration databases. If a match is found, biographical information is shared between countries, stopping the use of false identities and nationalities. This has already yielded positive results – 89 per cent of the cases in a US – UK pilot phase claiming asylum as unaccompanied minors had previously given details in the US indicating they were adults. This allows frontline officers to improve detection of fraudulent identity documents, and improve public safety by exposing those with criminal histories. We have one of the strongest and longest relations in the world with the US. There are big challenges facing us that are the same – the challenge of worldwide terrorism, the challenges of international crime, drug smuggling. We can help each other and we do help each other”.
