Deportation / Removal Issues
1 July 2022 Plans to send asylum seekers to Rwanda
According to a U.K. government minister, over 10,000 people had been deported from the U.K. between January 2019 and May 2022. Talks of deportation and migration from the UK have been frequent after the Home Office announced plans to send asylum seekers to Rwanda in April.
Administrative removal is the process by which certain categories of people may be removed from the UK. Usually, individuals are removed from the UK because they breached the immigration law. Deportation involves an entirely distinct legal process and is reserved for those who have committed serious criminal offences.
