Anoosh Chakelian (staff writer at the New Statesman) is obviously confused

In this article for the New Statesman Anoosh Chakelian (staff writer at the New Statesman) is obviously confused:  http://www.newstatesman.com/politics/2014/11/labour-brink-immigration-arms-race ("As the Labour party promises 1,000 new border guards, and more benefits curbs for migrants, is it entering a race to “toughen” up on EU migrants?"),

The 1,000 new border guards promised by Yvette Cooper are not intended to stop EU migrants (as everyone points out, EU migrants can't be stopped without treaty change or leaving the EU).

The 1,000 new border guards must be intended for the illegal migrants currently pouring into the country.

Please make an effort to get things right Ms Chakelian, and perhaps the New Statesman could employ some fact checkers.
