The Ukip leader, Nigel Farage has said Kent needs to implement 'bigger, stronger checks' at Dover.
He was responding to the Paris terror attacks.
His comments come after the Kent Police Commissioner, Ann Barnes, called on the Government to delay its cuts to the police budgets.
The leader of UKIP, south east MEP Nigel Farage has been in Thanet this afternoon.
Mr Farage says he will make immigration the centrepiece of his campaign for the UK to quit the EU, and for the first time, an opinion poll puts the quitters ahead of the remainers.
David Johns went to see how Ramsgate responded to the UKIP leader.
UKIP's economics spokesman Patrick O'Flynn blew open simmering tensions within the party in an interview with The Times, saying Mr Farage was no longer the "cheerful, ebullient, cheeky, daring" politician of recent times.
Mr O'Flynn said the UKIP leader's behaviour risked the party being seen as an "absolute monarchy" and blamed Mr Farage's "aggressive" and "inexperienced" advisers.
He called for Mr Farage, who lives in Kent, to adopt a "much more consultative and consensual leadership style".
Mr O'Flynn's comments come after Mr Farage was widely mocked for resigning as leader after failing to win the South Thanet seat he stood for in the General Election, only to be reinstated three days later after the party's National Executive Committee rejected his resignation.
Kent Police have confirmed that they are investigating allegations that ballot boxes may have been tampered with, in what was one of the highest profile election battles in the country last week.
Last Friday morning, Nigel Farage was defeated in his attempt to become an MP in South Thanet for UKIP. He lost to the Conservative candidate by more than 2,800 votes.
But after claims that ballot boxes were interfered with, Kent Police say they are now conducting enquiries into electoral fraud in the constituency. Here's our Political Correspondent, Phil Hornby.
On Monday 11 May, Kent Police was contacted by a member of the public from outside the county with a concern around election fraud due to speculation on social media in South Thanet. Initial enquiries by officers have been carried out and so far no evidence of electoral fraud has been found.
A single complaint has been lodged with Kent Police by a member of the public, from outside of the county, with concerns around the Thanet Parliamentary election - following speculation on social media. Kent Police has an obligation to follow up this complaint. Thanet District Council is not under investigation for election fraud. The council’s Returning Officer is satisfied that the correct processes were followed and a member of the Electoral Commission was present at the election in Thanet.
In response to the speculation on social media: Thanet’s parliamentary boundary is larger than the district boundary – extending into the Canterbury and Dover area so comparing the parliamentary and district election results is misleading. There were no lost or stolen ballot papers.
