Reforming the global asylum system

Today the Home Secretary will call for reform of global convention that has led to huge incentives for illegal immigration, helping us deliver on our priority to stop the boats.

  • The British people have warmly welcomed refugees for a long time, but seeking asylum and seeking better economic prospects are not the same.
  • That is why the Home Secretary will use a speech today to warn that the threshold for asylum claims has been lowered in the courts. We must ensure that the Government, not people smugglers, decide who can claim asylum in the UK.  
  • We will continue to do everything we can to stop small boat crossings and stop illegal migrants from shopping around for a preferred new country.
