Why Nationality and Borders Bill will harm refugee protection
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 “better protect refugees and survivors of modern slavery.”
Far from achieving this aim, the provisions of this Bill expressly set out to both reduce access to protection and, for many of the people who may nonetheless still secure protection, to reduce the quality of the protection that is provided.
