Statement on Immigration Bill June 2020

It is with heavy hearts that we bring to your attention that on 30th June 2020 Parliament voted to:

  • continue holding people seeking refuge in indefinite detention
  • continue to charge nurses coming to the UK to work in the NHS. The very nurses who have given their lives to be on the frontline saving us from COVID-19
  • prevent family reunion for lone child refugees wanting to be united with their family in the UK.

The Immigration Bill is the most racist Bill to come through our Parliament in a generation. We must continue to resist this Hostile Environment and fight for the rights of all migrants and people seeking refuge. The fight goes on.
