A shameful day for the UK. The Anti-Refugee Bill has passed.
Despite our best efforts and overwhelming opposition, the government has managed to force the Nationality and Borders Bill through Parliament.
This bill will punish refugees who have been left with no other options to find safety by taking dangerous journeys to get to the UK, and it will criminalise people for simply trying. It’s completely at odds with the UN Refugee Convention and will see the UK roll back on our international obligations.
