Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill (12 Rha 2023)

Alison Thewliss: ...and Borders Act 2022 came and went. The boats kept coming. The Illegal Migration Act 2023 was passed and, oddly enough, did not prove to be much of a deterrent, either. Today, we have the Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill before us, which the Tories claim will be the one to do it. Well, they think that the third time is the charm, so maybe it will or maybe it will not. I am...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill (12 Rha 2023)

Alison Thewliss: ...the UK’s international obligations and the principles of human rights. It costs a fortune and it is highly unlikely to achieve even its tawdry aims. We shall be tabling a prayer against the Rwanda treaty. The legal experts I have heard from are appalled by the implications of proceeding with a Bill that, by the Home Secretary’s own frontispiece to it, cannot be declared compliant with...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill (12 Rha 2023)

Alison Thewliss: If the right hon. Member can explain how Rwanda is safe, I will certainly give way.

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill (12 Rha 2023)

Alison Thewliss: ...correct, and has knowledge of many of these issues. It is important to reflect on those cases and what they actually mean, rather than what Government Members wish they meant. The Bill declares Rwanda safe in all circumstances. In so doing, it undermines the rule of law and the separation of powers, preventing the courts from establishing their own facts and driving a sleigh and a squad of...

UK-Rwanda Partnership ( 6 Rha 2023)

Alison Thewliss: Humpty Dumpty said, “When I use a word, it means just what I choose it to mean—neither more nor less.” Just by saying that Rwanda is a safe country does not make it so. Legislating does not make it so. The Home Secretary says that Rwanda is safe, yet somehow his treaty says that we will accept asylum seekers from Rwanda—from that safe country—so it is both safe and unsafe. He says...

UK-Rwanda Partnership ( 6 Rha 2023)

Alison Thewliss: ...is incredibly important in this House, and I would not want something incorrect to be on the record. The Home Secretary said in his statement: “Other countries have since copied our plans with Rwanda”. I can find no evidence that that is accurate. Can you advise on this point of accuracy, Mr Deputy Speaker, because no country is copying the plan with Rwanda?

UK-Rwanda Partnership ( 6 Rha 2023)

Alison Thewliss: Further to that point of order, Mr Deputy Speaker. On a point of accuracy, those who are being moved to Albania will be under Italian law. That is not the case in the Rwanda plan.

Written Answers — Home Office: Asylum: Rwanda ( 6 Rha 2023)

Alison Thewliss: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, pursuant to the Answer of 20 November 2023 to Question 2159 on Asylum: Rwanda, where on the Gov.uk website information on legal fees for R (on the application of AAA (Syria) and others) v Secretary of State for the Home Department and related cases is available.

Written Answers — Home Office: Asylum: Rwanda (20 Tach 2023)

Alison Thewliss: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, what the cost to the public purse was of establishing the UK and Rwanda Migration and Economic Development Partnership.

Illegal Immigration (15 Tach 2023)

Alison Thewliss: ...other cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment, and the international covenant on civil and political rights as well as our own domestic legislation. The Supreme Court made it clear that Rwanda is not a safe country. At the heart of the judgment today is the principle of non-refoulement, which means that people must not be sent back into harm’s way. The United Nations High...

Asylum-seeking Children: Hotel Accommodation ( 7 Meh 2023)

Alison Thewliss: ...of April 2023. Can the Minister update us on how many of them remain missing—unfound, lost, perhaps falling into the hands of traffickers, perhaps terrified at the prospect of being removed to Rwanda or locked up or detained indefinitely? It is very clear to me that the Illegal Migration Bill will make a very bad situation significantly worse, because it will remove rights from those...

Illegal Migration ( 5 Meh 2023)

Alison Thewliss: ...assumptions, works. Policies such as the hostile environment, which were started by Labour, have been turbocharged by successive Tory Home Secretaries. The Nationality and Borders Act 2022, the Rwanda plan, deals with Albania and the Illegal Migration Bill are not working because the central fact remains that people are coming here in small boats because they are desperate and they have no...

Illegal Migration Bill: New Clause 17 - Serious Harm Suspensive Claims: Interpretation (26 Ebr 2023)

Alison Thewliss: ...”, after Sabir Zazai, the chief executive of the Scottish Refugee Council. He came here as a child in the back of a lorry, but he would be prevented from so doing, criminalised and removed to Rwanda if the Government had their way. He makes an outstanding contribution to Scotland. He has two letters which he said he would put on the wall in his house. One is from the Home Office, saying,...

Illegal Migration Bill: Clause 2 - Duty to make arrangements for removal (28 Maw 2023)

Alison Thewliss: ...to be held in facilities where they are raped repeatedly by men. Those women will now not be able to ask for safety, because if they do, they will be putting themselves at risk of being deported to Rwanda. As we know, traffickers will hold that over women as a threat; this Bill is a traffickers’ charter. I had a look through the Human Rights Watch profiles of some of the countries on the...

Illegal Migration Bill: Clause 2 - Duty to make arrangements for removal (28 Maw 2023)

Alison Thewliss: ...of people such as Sabir Zazai, the chief executive of the Scottish Refugee Council, who came here as a child in the back of a lorry. Under this Bill he would be demonised and removed to Rwanda if he came here in similar circumstances.

Illegal Migration Bill: Clause 2 - Duty to make arrangements for removal (28 Maw 2023)

Alison Thewliss: ...Awareness Raising Alliance in Glasgow has told me that it is increasingly difficult to reassure service users, who are victims of sex trafficking, that they will not be returned or sent to Rwanda for speaking up, and the Bill will mean that TARA cannot reassure them at all. People who are trafficked were often in very vulnerable situations in their home countries, and those circumstances...

Illegal Migration Bill: Clause 2 - Duty to make arrangements for removal (28 Maw 2023)

Alison Thewliss: ...get across the channel, or even if they fly here via Pakistan on a visit visa obtained by pretending they will go back, the UK Government will not hear their case. They will put them on a flight to Rwanda. That is what inadmissibility means in practice, and the right hon. Member for Bournemouth East and his colleagues should catch themselves on. Amendment 190 would exempt people who are...

Illegal Migration Bill: Clause 2 - Duty to make arrangements for removal (28 Maw 2023)

Alison Thewliss: ...day. She was able to escape and find her way to the police. Under the Bill, she would now get no support. Her trafficker will now threaten her: if she goes to the authorities, they will send her to Rwanda. They will keep her under control with the measures the Government are bringing forward in the Bill. In addition, she will not get the expert support that TARA provides in Glasgow. She...

Home Department: Illegal Migration Bill: Asylum Seekers (20 Maw 2023)

Alison Thewliss: That is simply not correct. The Bill is not about helping asylum seekers; it is about banning asylum seekers. What does it say about the Home Secretary’s morals that she believes that Rwanda would be “a blessing” for asylum seekers, but when they come here she calls them a swarm and an invasion?

Illegal Migration Bill (13 Maw 2023)

Alison Thewliss: ...that I see, week in and week out, at my surgeries. It includes £12.7 million to compensate the 572 people the Home Office detained unlawfully last year, at least £120 million on the failed Rwanda deal, and £480 million to France over the next three years on top of the £250 million already given since 2014. The Refugee Council estimates that it will cost in the region of £980 million...
