UK Home Secretary’s 3-Day Visit To Washington
Suella Braverman, The UK Home Secretary, is ready to visit Washington to collect support for the UK’s stringent anti-migration stance. This will be a three-day visit, where she will converse with Alejandro Mayorkas, the Secretary of Homeland Security, and Attorney General Merrick Garland. This will be to develop strategies to get a grip on the illegal influx of migrants in the country and fight against immigration crime.
Her visit is not only about engaging in this conversation but also about revealing a ‘blueprint’ that can be adopted by other countries to counter the migration crisis. The UK government’s actions are carried out by Prime Minister Rishi Sunak and Braverman to put a stop to immigrants coming through the English Channel from France.
To cut down the accommodation expenses, they plan to keep migrants on a barge off the southern coast.
Legal Issues With The Plan
This plan by Braverman is facing legal obstacles which includes the idea of deporting migrants to special camps in Rwanda for processing asylum applications. The Supreme Court has yet to make a statement on the legality of the Rwanda deportation program. The following months will be quite important for the UK’s migration policy.
