The bill is the ‘biggest threat to refugee rights we’ve seen in decades and breaches our obligations under international law.’ Nadia Whittome MP

‘Not migrants. Humans’ David Lammy MP

The upcoming Nationality and Borders Bill means that individuals could be stripped of their British citizenship without warning under a proposed rule change quietly added to the nationality and borders bill. This bill quietly gives powers to remove British citizenship without notice.

‘The Nationality and Borders Bill makes significant changes to the UK asylum system and significantly curtails the rights of refugees. It represents a fundamental challenge to the principle of refugee protection in the UK, introducing a two-tier system where any refugee reaching the country who has not benefited from a place on a resettlement programme may have their claim deemed inadmissible and be expelled to another country, or eventually granted a temporary status with restricted rights to family reunification and financial support. 

The impacts of these measures are likely to be so severe that the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) has taken the unusual step of strongly and publicly opposing the plans.’ (Source: JCWI)

At Galeforce Films, we believe that society should be inclusive, our planet should be inclusive, and that this bill must be challenged to protect migrants rights in the UK. No human is illegal.
