Political discussions have always been a major point when it comes to migration. There have been some updates from Keir Starmer, which we will reveal in this blog.
Blueprint For Labour’s Migration:
With Yvette Cooper, the shadow home secretary, Keir Starmer went to The Hague for discussion with the EU’s law enforcement agency, Europol. Their main focus was to bring in a new perspective to address the ongoing migration crisis.

The goal for labour is to treat people-smuggling gangs just as the terrorists.
Labour will emphasize a strong collaboration with the EU without reversing Brexit. This can be a hurdle for Rishi Sunak’s administration.
Quotas For Asylum Seeker:
According to Stamer, potential deals with the EU can exist. This deal anticipates that the UK can accept some asylum seekers and return the Channel crossers.
To address the backlog of around 175,000+ asylum applications, the plan for Labour is to hire more caseworkers.
Contrast with the Government:
After Stammer’s openness of the quota-based deal, there has been a contrast with the government’s perspective. The current government does not want to accept migrant quotes and emphasizes their plan for the asylum application process in Rwanda.
According to the Labour migration front, Tories are quite weak. Sunak is not able to deny the unofficial arrivals, and this seems to be an opportunity for Labour to appeal to the “red wall” seats by presenting the latest approach.
Laying the Groundwork:
As part of the groundwork for a future Labour government, Starmer has been in discussions with Europol to explore potential agreements. Drawing on his experience as the director of public prosecutions, Starmer is focused on strengthening ties with European partners.
This new migration strategy by Labour presents a mix of resumed collaboration with the EU and has a strong perspective against people smuggling. As the political situation shifts, it is yet to see the ways these proposals will change the future of UK migration.
