For too long, Britain’s broken asylum system has lined the pockets of the vile criminal gangs who cheat the system. This is not fair to the vulnerable people who need protection or the British public who pay for it.
That is why the Conservatives have introduced the Nationality and Borders Bill, which will increase the punishment for people smugglers, make it a criminal offence to knowingly enter the UK without permission, and make it easier to swiftly remove those who enter the UK illegally.
This will create a fair but firm system that prevents dangerous channel crossings and cracks down on the criminal gangs that exploit vulnerable migrants, whilst supporting those in genuine need.
