Britain will deny asylum to migrants who board boats: report

The British government will routinely deny asylum to migrants who board boats to cross the English Channel or come to Britain through illegal routes, according to a report.

Under new laws that will be unveiled by Britain’s interior minister Priti Patel on Sunday, local time, the government will unveil its “fair borders bill,” outlining its plan of a two-tier system in which migrants are treated differently if they pay criminal gangs to help them come to Britain, The Sunday Times said.

New legal routes will be created for those who are at genuine risk of harm, and foreign criminals and asylum seekers who are not at risk will be deported, the report added.

“Currently, everybody that comes to our country and makes an asylum claim, they are treated the same, irrespective of the route through which they have entered our country – and that simply isn’t right,” Patel said in an interview with the London-based newspaper.
