Our Comment On Government’s Asylum Proposals

Commenting Alp Mehmet, Chairman of Migration Watch UK, said: “These proposals are welcome. They are, rightly, designed to remove those who make false claims and to deter “asylum shoppers” who come here from countries where they are already safe.

An Amnesty For Illegal Immigrants Would Risk Lives

Summary 1. The PM said of his asylum policy on 18 March 2021: “The objective here is to save life.” That same day he spoke in favour of his long-standing proposal for an amnesty for long-term illegal immigrants. If the aim is to save life, why would you offer an amnesty that would only spur […]

Signing United Nations Compact Could Only Undermine Government’s Commitment To Control And Reduce Immigration

The UK Government should make it clear that it will not sign the prospective United Nations ‘Global Compact on Migration for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration’.
