This Government is trying to pass an anti-refugee bill (also known as the Nationality and Borders Bill) that is the biggest attack on refugee protection we have ever seen.
It is dangerous, cruel and life-threatening for people seeking safety in the UK. It will:
- Punish desperate people whose only way to get to safety is to take dangerous routes to the UK.
- Criminalise them and strip away their rights, making it impossible for them to rebuild their lives.
- Deport and lock up people in need of refugee protection.
- Send people to detention centres in other countries in order to process their asylum claims – something that we know will be a humanitarian disaster.
If this bill becomes law, it will slam the door on people fleeing war, persecution and torture. You can help us to stand up to this Government and say no to these cruel plans by sending a letter to your MP.
