"to combat illegal migration, terrorism and organized crime"

yeah yeah yeah. treat us all like criminals and put us in the database.


"All Europeans should be able to use such a system when EU countries complete the task of issuing passports with two biometric identifiers, by 2019 at the latest. The 27 EU countries started issuing passports with a digitalized facial image in August 2006 and, in June 2009, will add the holder's fingerprints. European residence permits will also contain the same identifiers.
It is unclear whether Britain and Ireland, which along with Cyprus are not members of Schengen, would opt into the program."
