Sinn Féin MP Elisha McCallion has said Theresa May’s claim that the Tory Brexit border in Ireland could resemble the US-Canada border is both ‘deluded and dangerous’.
The Foyle MP said:
“The British government have repeatedly revealed a staggering ignorance of, and disregard towards, the realities of their impending Brexit border in Ireland.
“The US-Canada border is permanently manned with guards and physical security infrastructure.
“Designated Special Status is the only protection for all those citizens in Ireland whose basic rights and livelihoods are endangered by the Tory-DUP Brexit pact.
