Sunak: Progress has been made on channel crossings. Ambitious new energy partnership with France
British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak has met with French President Emmanuel Macron to try and find an agreement over the migrant crisis in the English Channel. This where thousands of people are attempting to cross over in small boats.
The illegal migration bill will include a “duty” on the British home secretary to remove nearly all migrants who arrive in Britain without permission, overriding their right to claim asylum.
Home secretary Suella Braverman told the Daily Express the bill would push “the boundaries of international law” and the measure would likely to be tested in the courts.
Under new laws, only the under-18s and the sick arriving in small boats would be allowed to apply for asylum.
