EU is to offer Africans and other skilled migrants from the middle-east 'Blue Cards' similar to the US-style Green Cards as part of a new plan to curb immigration.

According to SUN newspaper, EU officials believe the offer of a right to come to Europe will curb illegal immigration. Nations such as Nigeria, Senegal, Mali, Niger and Ethiopia will be offered incentives to toughen up borders, but will lose aid if they do not act.

 Meanwhile EU court has ruled that illegal immigrants entering one EU state from another on the continent cannot be jailed. "They must be free while deportation proceedings take place." Those likely to flee or who pose a public danger can go to an immigration centre.
