UK Begins Detention of Migrants for Deportation to Rwanda

The UK Home Office has started detaining illegal migrants targeted for deportation to Rwanda, as part of a new government strategy. This move follows the recent enactment of the Rwanda Bill, which allows for the deportation of asylum seekers to the East African nation. Home Secretary James Cleverly emphasized the rapid pace of operations, which are set to continue over the next few weeks. The government has prepared by increasing detention spaces and training additional caseworkers to expedite the process. Amidst this, Prime Minister Rishi Sunak affirmed the UK’s stance of not accepting illegal migrant returns from Ireland, citing no legal obligation to do so. This policy has led to significant controversy and protests within the UK.–News Desk
