EU pact on immigration

The International Herald Tribune reports that the European Union's ministers of interior have agreed to proceed towards an integration of asylum and immigration policies.
Under the pact - so far a political accord rather than a binding legal document - EU nations pledge to expel illegal immigrants from European soil, to strengthen border controls and to seek a joint asylum policy by 2012.
Has anyone told the Tories who are placing the creation of a British border police at the heart of their manifesto?
