Providing Asylum for those who really need it, plugging loopholes which criminals can abuse

Today at the virtual Conservative Party Conference 2020, the Home Secretary is announcing the biggest overhaul of the UKs broken asylum system in decades – ensuring it is firm and fair. 

  • An asylum system should provide safe haven to those fleeing persecution, oppression or tyranny. But right now, ours enables an international criminal trade to elbow the most vulnerable to the side. 
     
  • After decades of inaction, we will introduce legislation to make our broken system fairer and firmer. Fair and compassionate towards those who need our help – welcoming people through safe and legal routes. Firm, by stopping the abuse of the system. We will stop the exploitation of the broken system by those who come here illegally – sometimes via small boat, asylum shop and make endless vexatious claims to remain. 
     
  • Under Conservative leadership, the United Kingdom has and always will provide sanctuary when the lights are being switched off on people’s liberties.
