The federal government’s Nationality and Borders Invoice which is at present going via Parliament and is predicted to quickly turn out to be legislation features a provision to create offshore immigration processing centres for folks in search of asylum.
Many authorized consultants have expressed their concern over the legality of this provision. Additionally it is costly: it’s reported that the Rwandan trial, which can goal single males, will value £120m.
After all, morally, that is unacceptable.
At Proper to Stay, we firmly oppose the British authorities’s persevering with try and globalise its flagship ‘Hostile Surroundings’ coverage, designed to hurt folks in search of asylum and migrants and harm our communities of solidarity.
Individuals who come to our shore seeking security, no matter their strategies of arrival, want compassion and safety: this has at all times been the case and this can at all times be the case. Flying them out to Rwanda, forcing them to face additional uncertainties, is totally pointless.
The truth is, folks have at all times migrated, and at all times will. This offshoring proposal, like many different dangerous border enforcement practices comparable to immigration detention, won’t cease any of this. Nor will it extinguish our shared sense of humanity that drives many people to assist one another in our on a regular basis lifetime of wrestle and collectively resist merciless and inhumane coverage proposals which might be thrown at us.
