Suella Braverman urges PM that all cross-Channel asylum seekers should be detained indefinitely.

Suella Braverman backs new proposals- Anybody who seeks refuge via “illegal” routes will be imprisoned indefinitely and banned from ever settling in the UK.

According to strict proposals supported by the home secretary, anybody who seeks refuge via “illegal” means would be imprisoned indefinitely and forbidden from ever settling in the UK.

Suella Braverman is said to be supporting suggestions that the UK leaves the European Convention on Human Rights and set a 20,000 annual ceiling on the number of asylum seekers who may be accepted.

She has forwarded a study from a right leaning research organisation in an effort to put further pressure on Rishi Sunak to seek a harsher response to the crisis of tiny boats attempting to cross the English Channel.

With the number of people coming by boat anticipated to exceed 50,000 in 2022 and Nigel Farage threatening to return to active politics in order to recruit supporters for the Reform UK party, Tory MPs are in a panic about the problem.

In the proposal made by the Centre for Policy Studies, they would:

* Detain indefinitely all asylum seekers who enter the country “illegally”.

* Deport them all to Rwanda, or other third countries – despite the legal challenge to Priti Patel’s agreement.

* Make it illegal to ever claim asylum in the UK after travelling from a safe country.

* Make it harder to use the Modern Slavery Act to claim asylum, after alleged abuse of the rules to escape deportation.

* Cap the numbers admitted through resettlement routes from the likes of Ukraine, Afghanistan and Syria at no more than 20,000 a year.

Ms. Braverman states in her introduction that she “does not agree with everything” advocated, including the need for identification cards.

To combat the crossings, she said, “I welcome it as a vital and necessary contribution to the policy debate about what can be done to tackle the crossings.”

The pressure is a result of allegations that the prime minister reappointed Ms. Braverman only six days after she quit for violating the ministerial code out of fear of the Tory right-wing.

It is known that the intended law’s specifics have not yet been decided by ministers; publication of the legislation is not scheduled until the new year.

The new strategy was hinted at by Robert Jenrick, the minister of immigration, on Saturday. “We have to recreate our immigration system so that it’s fit for purpose. That will mean creating a system where deterrence is through the whole thing.

“It will also mean looking at how we treat people on arrival, so that nobody thinks that coming to the UK is a soft touch, and the UK is not a better site for asylum shoppers than our EU neighbour.”

No. 10 is said to be mulling stricter regulations for dependents accompanying students travelling to the UK, but Mr. Jenrick went farther in challenging the motivations behind many students who want education.

“There are people coming to universities here as a backdoor way of bringing their families into the UK and staying here for a prolonged period,” he told GB News.

  1. No.one should be granted asylum after entering this country illegally. Give them 3 choices.
    1. Return back were you came from.
    2. Return to you Country of birth.
    3. If you refuse to say were you came from, or were you were born and have no papers, send you to Rwanda. Easy.
