Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill: Clause 3 - Disapplication of the Human Rights Act 1998 (17 Ion 2024)

Alison Thewliss: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Ruislip, Northwood and Pinner (David Simmonds). It was refreshing to hear somebody on the Conservative Benches talking up the merits of an asylum visa. That would break the model of the people-smuggling gangs because it would give people a safe and legal route and safety and certainty. Nobody need be exploited by paying over everything that they...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill: Clause 3 - Disapplication of the Human Rights Act 1998 (17 Ion 2024)

Alison Thewliss: Perhaps the right hon. Member would like to correct the record. Most people who come on small boats are in fact refugees, because the Home Office grants them that status. They are not economic migrants as they do not get economic migrant status; they get refugee status.

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill: Clause 3 - Disapplication of the Human Rights Act 1998 (17 Ion 2024)

Alison Thewliss: I have heard the hon. Gentleman make that point before about people who come and cannot be sent back to whatever country because of the situation there. That has occurred within my own casework, and at the moment it appears that the Home Office grants people temporary leave for perhaps a year at a time, which gives no certainty to the person affected but does I suppose give the Home Office...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill: Clause 2 - Safety of the Republic of Rwanda (16 Ion 2024)

Alison Thewliss: What a despondent, pathetic, ridiculous Bill this has been, and what a grim debate it has been to listen to. We have heard a wide range of speeches, most of which, I am afraid to say—I am putting it politely—were absolute guff. The UK is not looking to accommodate 8 billion people—of course it is not. Most people in small boats are not economic migrants; we know that, because the Home...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill: Clause 2 - Safety of the Republic of Rwanda (16 Ion 2024)

Alison Thewliss: The hon. Lady says that the asylum system has limitations, but does she accept that the only way legally to claim asylum in the United Kingdom is to put feet on these shores? There is no asylum visa, and the Government have not proposed any new safe and legal routes to allow people to come here.

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill: Clause 2 - Safety of the Republic of Rwanda (16 Ion 2024)

Alison Thewliss: The hon. Lady’s point is quite absurd. Nobody is saying, realistically, that 8 billion people are coming to the UK. The vast majority of people who flee their countries stay in a neighbouring country. They do not go any further because they want to return home. The UK takes a very small percentage of that number, and those who come often do so to reunite with family and for safety, because...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill: Clause 2 - Safety of the Republic of Rwanda (16 Ion 2024)

Alison Thewliss: The right hon. Gentleman is talking, quite ridiculously, about people concocting stories—I feel that he is perhaps concocting one himself. Will he tell me when he last spoke to an asylum seeker?

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill: Clause 2 - Safety of the Republic of Rwanda (16 Ion 2024)

Alison Thewliss: I beg to move amendment 45, page 2, line 33, leave out “a safe” and insert “an unsafe”.

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill: Clause 2 - Safety of the Republic of Rwanda (16 Ion 2024)

Alison Thewliss: The SNP has brought forward these amendments to this appalling Bill not because we really believe that there are improvements that can be made to it, but because that is the limitation of the process we have in front of us this afternoon. The Bill is irredeemably awful in each and every provision and clause, and in the intent behind it. And it will not work. Like the hostile environment that...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill: Clause 2 - Safety of the Republic of Rwanda (16 Ion 2024)

Alison Thewliss: I am glad the right hon. Gentleman has had your advice, Dame Rosie, on the subject of the debate. To put the issue into context, every single week I sit in front of people at my advice surgery and listen patiently to the stories of the constituents who come to see me. I have read their Home Office statements: they have been through trauma, made perilous journeys at unimaginable cost, been...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill: Clause 2 - Safety of the Republic of Rwanda (16 Ion 2024)

Alison Thewliss: I will if the hon. Gentleman can tell me why the Government treat people so cruelly, I will.

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill: Clause 2 - Safety of the Republic of Rwanda (16 Ion 2024)

Alison Thewliss: The hon. Gentleman should inform himself, because there is no such thing as an illegal asylum seeker in the first place.

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill: Clause 2 - Safety of the Republic of Rwanda (16 Ion 2024)

Alison Thewliss: The hon. Gentleman can sit down; he has made his point. Fellow human beings, from Afghanistan, Syria, Yemen, Libya, Iran, Iraq, Ethiopia, Eritrea, Sudan, China, the Democratic Republic of the Congo and Cameroon, Tamils from Sri Lanka, Ahmadiyyas from Pakistan—all of those and more—have given me just the tiniest of insights into their lives. It is a privilege to know them and to help them...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill: Clause 2 - Safety of the Republic of Rwanda (16 Ion 2024)

Alison Thewliss: Perhaps the right hon. Gentleman would like to come along to listen to Olivia Ndoti and the women at the Women’s Integration Network in Glasgow. Perhaps he will hear from people from Rwanda—this Government grant asylum to people from Rwanda, because their country is not safe. I do not believe that anyone who supports this awful Bill can do so knowing the people it will affect. It is laid...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill: Clause 2 - Safety of the Republic of Rwanda (16 Ion 2024)

Alison Thewliss: I believe that it is fundamentally unwise to recognise countries as safe in perpetuity, because things are unsafe. This amendment highlights the illogicality of this Bill. These things should not be legislated on at all. The hon. Gentleman mentions the Libyans who are being transited through Rwanda. They are not settling in Rwanda; they are being transited through Rwanda to other countries...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill: Clause 2 - Safety of the Republic of Rwanda (16 Ion 2024)

Alison Thewliss: I wish to make some progress. The hon. Gentleman will be able to contribute later on. I wish to touch on what the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees has said about this. It has reviewed the updated UK-Rwanda scheme and it says: “It maintains its position that the arrangement, as now articulated in the UK-Rwanda Partnership Treaty and accompanying legislative scheme, does not meet...

Written Answers — Home Office: Undocumented Migrants: Employment (16 Ion 2024)

Alison Thewliss: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, what data his Department holds on the number of people fined under article 2 of the Immigration (Employment of Adults Subject to Immigration Control) Order 2008 for each year since it came into force.

Written Answers — Home Office: Undocumented Migrants: Employment (16 Ion 2024)

Alison Thewliss: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, what data his Department holds on the number of people fined under section (a) 23(2) and (b) 25(4) of the Immigration Act 2014 for each year since the Act came into force.
