Migrants crossing the Channel
Migrants crossing the Channel will face a ban from claiming asylum in Britain under plans announced by the Home Secretary.
At the Conservative Party conference, Suella Braverman used her first major speech since taking on the role to set out the proposals.
The new laws – which go further than the Nationality and Borders Act which came into force in June – will impose a blanket ban on anyone deemed entering the UK illegally from seeking refuge.
The announcement marks the latest attempt by the Government to curb the growing numbers of Channel crossings after its flagship policy to send migrants on a one-way trip to Rwanda stalled amid legal challenges.
So far this year more than 33,500 people have arrived in the UK after making the journey from France.
Ms Braverman told the conference in Birmingham: “We have got to stop the boats crossing the Channel. This has gone on far too long.
