Why Nationality and Borders Bill will further enable smugglers and traffickers to thrive

The following analysis is extracted from the joint submission of Migrant Voice and Amnesty International UK to the Public Bill Committee on this Bill.

It considers one of the primary objectives Ministers claim to be pursuing by this Bill. That objective is “to break the business model of people smugglers and human traffickers”. As explained in this analysis, the Bill, if implemented in its current form, will not only fail to meet that objective but is likely to enable that so-called ‘business’, in reality cruel exploitation, to continue to thrive.
