UK can finally deport asylum seekers to Rwanda

UK’s Rwanda deportation bill will finally become law.


This is after opposition and crossbench peers backed down on Monday night.


Their decision opened the way for legal battles over the potential removal of dozens of people seeking asylum in the United Kingdom.


The bill was finally passed after a marathon battle over the key legislation between the Commons and the Lords.


The bill is expected to be granted royal assent on Tuesday.


Home Office sources told the Guardian UK that they have already identified a group of asylum seekers with weak legal claims to remain in the UK who will be part of the first tranche to be sent to east Africa in July.


British Prime Minister, Rishi Sunak, has put the bill at the centre of his attempts to stop small boats crossing the Channel.


The home secretary, James Cleverly, said it was a “landmark moment in our plan to stop the boats”.


In a video posted to social media, he said: “The Safety of Rwanda Bill has passed in Parliament and it will become law within days…”
