Government's plan to tackle asylum abuse

March 24, 2021

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. The asylum system has come very close to collapse because of high numbers and increasing abuse. Effective action to remove those with no right to be in the UK will be the key and will be strongly supported by the public.
