CHANGE IN LAWS TO STOP MIGRANTS CLAIMING ASYLUM IN BRITAIN
Priti Patel, Secretary of State for the Home Department plans to modify the law to block migrants who cross the Channel in boats from claiming asylum in Britain.
The UK Home Office staff have been demanded to draw up a crackdown on asylum rights as Priti Patel is under great stress following a severe rise in Channel migrants.
Migrants crossing the Channel in small boats could be forbidden from claiming asylum in Britain as segment of plans to control human rights laws.
The UK Home Office officials have been demanded to take into account a strict crackdown on asylum rights in an attempt to stop the flow of Channel migrants, which has stretched record levels in recent days.
Under one of the most drastic or extreme response possible, migrants could be banned from claiming asylum if they come to the UK from a safe country like France.
Ministers of Parliament are also seeking at limiting the right of failed asylum seekers to fight deportation in the courts.
Both changes would violate the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR), which is executed in the UK via the Human Rights Act.
A UK Government source claimed that ministers ‘remain dedicated to the ECHR’, but admitted they were observing at ‘how we implement it in our country’.
The source mentioned any modification were ‘not imminent’. The examination to the law is also said to be looking at whether to ‘disapply’ the ECHR from new rules such as the Overseas Operations Bill, which is intended to protect British troops from ‘vexatious’ prerogatives following service abroad.
The UK Home Secretary Priti Patel is under great difficulty to act following a shrill increase in Channel migrant figures to more than 6,000 so far in 2020.
Last month at a meeting with Tory Ministers of Parliament, she mentioned that the asylum system was ‘broken’, and vowed to come forward with new rules and regulations that would ‘send the Left into meltdown’.
Priti Patel also mentioned that the system was being ‘ abused by leftie Labour-supporting lawyers’ who were doing everything they could to prevent the UK Government deporting migrants.
The drive to transform human rights laws is being pushed by the Dominic Cummings, chief adviser of Prime Minister Boris Johnson, who has in the past criticised the ECHR is accountable for blocking the deportation of dangerous offenders from the UK.
