Illegal Migration Bill

Please write to your local MP about the Illegal Migration Bill which is being debated in Parliament.


We remain profoundly concerned by the new Bill. This legislation is not the way to resolve the issue of small boat crossings. There are alternative policy approaches – such as dealing with the backlog of asylum claims and opening safe and legal routes for asylum seekers – which do not contravene international law and reduce the UK’s standing in the world.
