Asylum seeker wristbands is to be replaced with ids

A Home Office contractor is to withdraw the use of wristbands to identify asylum seekers and replace them with photo ID.
Clearsprings Ready Homes, which is contracted to supply accommodation for refugees at Lynx House in Cardiff, had been criticised for making them wear the red wristbands at all times to claim breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Eric Ngalle, a 36-year-old refugee who stayed at Lynx House, reportedly said motorists on nearby roads would sometimes spot the wristbands and tell their wearers to "go back to your country".
This is a very good development to keep these refugees safe but is it a wise decision.
