British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak announced strict laws against illegal immigrants to prevent them from crossing the English Channel.

The British-Indian leader had made tackling this illegal route between Britain’s maritime border and neighboring France his top priority this year.

“If you come here illegally, you can’t claim asylum. You can’t take advantage of our modern slavery protections. You can’t make false human rights claims and you can’t stay,” Sunak said on Twitter to warn illegal immigrants. .

The new legislation places a duty on the Home Secretary to remove anyone arriving by small boat to Rwanda or a “safe” third country “as soon as reasonably possible” and to ban them from returning permanently.

Sunak, who has made ‘stopping the boats’ one of his top priorities, said: “Make no mistake, if you come here illegally, you won’t be able to stay.”

“Illegal migration is not fair to British taxpayers, it is not fair to those who come here legally and it is not right for criminal gangs to be allowed to continue their immoral trade. I am determined to keep my promise to stop the boats, he added.

The UK has laws allowing illegal immigrants to seek asylum after crossing the border. Typically, the migrants are allowed to stay while their cases are litigated, but the new legislation would prevent such migrants from seeking asylum in the first place.

The government has been trying for some time to do something about the rise in the number of asylum seekers making the dangerous crossing from France to the UK. However, it is not clear exactly how the government proposes to limit the rights of asylum seekers.
