Scrap the UK government's cruel and unworkable plan for immigration
The government have just revealed a new plan for immigration. It is cruel, misleading and will destroy lives.
Priti Patel claims she wants to support ‘legal’ entry to the UK. But again and again, this government has shut down the ‘safe and legal routes’ they emphasise should be the only way for people to reach safety.
Now, instead of protecting vulnerable people, this new plan will punish people forced to make dangerous journeys to the UK - eroding their rights and making it harder for them to rebuild their lives in safety.
If the government was serious about protecting lives and tackling smuggling gangs, they should be making it simpler and easier for people at risk to claim asylum - not embarking on these deeply inhumane plans.
