Implications for Sunak

It is a major political hit at Sunak and this cannot come at a worse time when next year’s election is approaching and immigration is a top issue of concern among voters.

Sunak’s answer involves new treaties with Rwanda reviewing international treaties and even changing Britain`s laws.

Policy Critique

The critics included opposition lawmakers and various organizations, which branded it as a failed, expensive, and immoral policy.

It was a failed Conservative gimmick according to Keir Starmer, now leaving Sunak exposed.

Legal Concerns

The Supreme Court flagged a danger of ‘refoulement’ – asylum seekers being exposed to harm if sent back to their home states infringing international conventions such as the ECHR.

The Court did not however completely dismiss the possibility of the scheme’s revival if the issues of legality can be addressed properly.




Summary

There were some legal hurdles in the UK’s plan to deport asylum seekers to Rwanda. This shows that the immigration and asylum issues still remain complicated. Sunak’s administration now faces a tough terrain of the constitutional court that requires the revision of its policy in relation to immigration.
