Johnson retracts the pardon to illegal immigrants.

The British government has silently canceled a proposal by Prime Minister Boris Johnson to grant amnesty to illegal immigrants. Johnson had previously said his proposal would help prevent another “winderush scandal”.

The Prime Minister, who had initially defended the idea when he was the mayor of London as an “acquired amnesty” for illegal immigrants, reiterated his support for the move when he became the country’s leader last July, and assured the deputies that his government would consider introducing such policies.

However, when a member of the “workers” Commons, Dr. Rosina Allen Khan, asked a parliamentary question this month about the fate of the plan, it seemed that Interior Minister Victoria Atkins had dropped it, saying that “immigration laws really allow illegal immigrants to regulate their status.” Minister Atkins stressed that “the government remains committed to the immigration policy that welcomes and celebrates people in the United Kingdom through safe and legal ways, but deters illegal immigration.”

Activists feared that this reversal of the proposal would leave migrant workers without “effective protection”, which they said should be available and of increasing importance after Britain’s exit from the European Union, in order to prevent the exploitation of workers. They accused the prime minister of “taking misleading positions.”

Lucilla Granada, chief executive of Focus on Exploitation Labor, noted that “the UK exit agreement calls for a redesign of our immigration system.” She added, “Illegal persons are at risk of severe exploitation, including modern crimes of slavery,” considering that pardoning those who do not have the appropriate papers would provide them with vital protection.

On the other hand, Omar Khan, director of the Runnymede Trust, confirmed that he was “not surprised” that Prime Minister Boris Johnson seemed to be freezing the plan, adding, “He supported the pardon by mere words, but he, like all politicians, must judge his actions.” “.

Khan called the current policy of illegal immigrants “a failure”. He believed that “politicians may like to speak in a strong tone, but they ignore the clear fact that the current adopted policy has not been in operation for years, and has been constantly harming many people.” It has been a long time since a realistic debate and a realistic policy regarding Illegal immigrants, rather than speaking in a loud, useless tone and adopting misleading situations. “

Sonia Linnigan, Head of Legal Policy at the Immigration Law Practitioners’ Association, said, as we’ve seen with the Windrush case, it is difficult for people to provide evidence of their lives in the UK, especially when the hostile environment is designed to ensure that those who are In an illegal situation, they will not be able to obtain the papers that the Ministry of Interior is looking to see. ” She made clear that she was concerned about the “failure to observe” these advertisements by people who would be affected by such an amnesty, saying, “Every time the matter revolves around, the hopes are raised before it inevitably fades again.”
