“Enough is enough,” the UK is going to pass a new law to stop people from entering the country illegally. The United Kingdom is going to pass a new law to stop people from Europe from coming to Britain in small boats across the English Channel. The law, according to reports, will be unveiled on Tuesday. Suella Braverman, the interior minister, told the Sun newspaper on Sunday, “enough is enough.” The British government has pledged to increase its efforts to combat illegal immigration for months. This is especially true given that the number of people making the dangerous crossing of the English Channel increased to over 45,000 last year.
There is enough. The Home Secretary continued, “They are sick of tough talk and inadequate action.” The British people want this issue resolved. The boats must be stopped.
The number of migrants arriving on the English coast has doubled in the past two years. One of Prime Minister Rishi Sunak’s five top priorities in January was to address the migrant issue. According to Reuters, Sunak’s party is doing poorly in polls, and the PM is even under pressure from lawmakers from his party to come up with a good solution.
According to a report in the Sun on Sunday, the proposed new legislation will make it impossible for anyone arriving in the country on a small boat to file an asylum claim. After that, as soon as possible, they will be relocated to a “safe third country.”
Boris Johnson, the former prime minister, came to an agreement last year to send tens of thousands of migrants to Rwanda, which is more than 6,400 kilometers (4,000 miles) away; a nation that the British High Commissioner to Rwanda has said has “a poor human rights record.” Numerous European nations share this sentiment, and six of them even expressed their concern about it in an open letter published on Human Rights Day in 2015.
According to Reuters, the first flight under the agreement was scheduled for June of last year, but it was halted by an ECHR injunction at the last minute. A judicial review at the London High Court also challenged the strategy’s legality. The arrangement has been censured by basic freedoms gatherings and even purportedly by Ruler Charles.
In December, the High Court declared it legal, but opponents want to appeal that decision. The legal battle is likely to end in the UK Supreme Court, so it may take months to complete.
