UK: Home Office making people homeless 'is cruel and must stop'
In response to the Home Office making the decision to begin the process to evict some asylum seekers ‘with immediate effect’, Steve Valdez-Symonds, Refugee and Migrants Director at Amnesty International UK, said:
“The Home Office should not be making people homeless – it is cruel.
“To evict vulnerable people during a pandemic beggars belief and it shows an appalling lack of concern for the lives and welfare of people and communities.
“For years, governments have used destitution as a weapon of immigration policy, and this must stop.”
