There will be a presumption that people can be returned to the EU and other developed countries so people can be removed despite having a pending asylum claim or appeal which will eventually lift the load of the Home Office and focus more on the claims that came through a safe and legal route. People might be punished with a new status that is temporary protection which will allow the migrants to live in the UK for 30 months, with no recourse to public funds and “restricted” family reunion rights. This is for people who are barred from the claims and are unable to return to any other country and who meet the following criteria:
- Did not come to the UK directly
- Did not claim without delay
- Unable to show valid reason to be in the UK
Additionally, there will be an increase in the duration of the sentence for the migrants entering the UK illegally. Currently, these people face a sentence of a maximum of six months; however, this has been increased but not yet specifically mentioned in the document published by the Home Office.
