A Euro Border Police Force?

In Le Figaro Éric Besson et Pierre Lellouche, Minister of Immigration, Integration, National Identity and Solidarity Development (yes, even the French have these ridiculous posts) and Secretary of State for European Affairs respectively, argue for a European border police:
We're proposing that the EU eventually provide itself with a European border police, as a completely indispensable complement to the freedom of movement established in the Schengen area. There will certainly be no call for this European police force to replace the activities of the national border guards. It should support member states wherever Europe is faced with exceptional trafficking activity. It favours a communal approach to employing the means and co-ordinated action needed to dismantle trafficking networks.
As if having British goons working for the Border Agency isn't bad enough, now these French jokers want to replace them with foreigners.

Now why would they want to do that?
