Migrants: Demonstration in London against Government Restrictions Act Last Hour

(ANSA) — LONDON, MARCH 18 — Several protesters marched in London to denounce the highly controversial ‘Illegal Migration Bill’, the tightening of legislation heralded by Prime Minister Rishi Sunak’s government as a tool to stop record landings of migrants to counteract across the English Channel.

About 2,000 protesters, many carrying placards reading “Nobody is illegal” and union logos, marched towards Downing Street, the Prime Minister’s office. Organizers said the demonstration was partly a response to the government’s “inhumane” and “illegal” immigration law. “The people of this country are respectable … and they are willing to open their arms to those fleeing terrible circumstances,” said Mark Daly, organizer of the protest. “It’s a racist policy by a racist government,” he added. Other protests took place in Glasgow, Scotland and the Welsh capital Cardiff.

The draft law provides for the rapid deportation of people who have entered the country illegally to a third country such as Rwanda, which is considered safe and makes asylum applications practically impossible. Exceptions would be made for unaccompanied minors. A move to prevent thousands of migrants from crossing the Channel in small boats: More than 45,000 arrived last year. (HAND).
