UKBA immigration officers were seen carrying out random identity checks on members of the public on Queen Street, Cardiff, on Tuesday 19th April at about 9am.

Three officers, two dressed as Police Officers with body armour and handcuffs, but with ‘UK Border Agency’ identified on the rear of their armour appeared to only be stopping black and asian people on their way to work, asking questions and then phoning through information.

No Borders are calling for people to be vigilant about UKBA officers activities and to email No Borders Wales if they come across officers stopping and questioning people.

Activists intend to gather information and challenge the authority of UKBA officers to act in this way.
