The details

Rishi Sunak and Suella Braverman to Announce New Laws

Rishi Sunak and Suella Braverman are set to announce new laws that will prevent people from making asylum claims if they enter the UK on small boats.

The legislation, provisionally called the illegal migration bill, is expected to make asylum claims inadmissible from those who travel to the UK on small boats.

The proposed law would require the home secretary to remove individuals who arrive on small boats “as soon as reasonably practicable” to Rwanda or a “safe third country”. Additionally, those who arrive would be prohibited from applying for asylum in the UK, and would be barred from returning once removed.

Courts Prevent Government from Deporting People to Rwanda

The courts have thus far prevented the government from deporting people to Rwanda under human rights laws.

The government has proposed a “rights brake” in the legislation as a potential workaround.

Chris Heaton-Harris and Coalition of 12 Trade Unions Comment

Rishi Sunak and Suella Braverman are travelling to France on Friday for a summit with the French president, Emmanuel Macron, where the issue of small boats is anticipated to be addressed.

Chris Heaton-Harris of the Labour party has commented that he believed additional pathways would be established for asylum seekers to enter the UK.

The latest Home Office figures indicate that 2,950 individuals have crossed the Channel on small boats in the current year.

A coalition of 12 trade unions has alleged that the government is complicit in the violent incidents that have occurred at hotels accommodating refugees.

Upcoming Legislation to be Monitored Carefully

The upcoming legislation is anticipated to be revealed shortly, and will be monitored carefully by all parties involved in the discussion.

It is yet to be determined if the government will be able to find a solution to prevent individuals from entering the UK via small boats and seeking asylum, or if the courts will continue to impede their attempts.
