The Dutch surveillance system @migoboras (a Dutch/English acronym standing for "Mobile Information-Driven Action – Better Operational Results and Advanced Security," pdf):

"The Meijers Committee is of the opinion that controls behind the borders will have an effect equivalent to border checks if the following elements are present:

"a. the surveillance aims expressly at controlling persons who just crossed the internal borders;
"b. the surveillance aims at controlling whether these persons are complying with the conditions for entry and stay in the country (which is equivalent to “combating illegal stay after the crossing of borders”);
"c. the surveillance is exercised on a systematic basis.

Our work is only possible with your support.
