Opinion: Patel would have blocked her own parents from entering the United Kingdom

Home Secretary Priti Patel and her Home Office would with today’s rules and laws blocked her own parents from entering the United Kingdom. This means, if the rules that she has set fourth and made into law would make it impossible for her to become a Member of Parliament and Minister. That says something about how draconian the laws has become.

The newest Immigration Bill will make it impossible and illegal for refugees and asylum-seekers, which doesn’t come through resettlement schemes. That means the ones who flee war, famine and political prosecution faces not only lack of protection and neither able to re-unit with their families. The ones helping the refugees and asylum-seekers are also facing the law.

We also know that the United Kingdom, the Tories and Patel has in addition signed an agreement for “offshore” operation in Rwanda. This is all in combination and shows the viciousness towards immigrants in the United Kingdom. The UK who has at one point colonized nations, islands and whatnot across the world. Is now blocking the world from coming home.

Patel and the Conservative Party of the UK is showing it’s lack of tolerance, respect and value of life. As they are so openly cruel, inhumane and so deeply flawed. This is really an attack on immigration, the rights of asylum-seekers and refugees.

That is the plan and aims of this, as they are wanting to have laws to ensure the asylum-seekers and the ones coming can be detained, returned or sent to a Third-Country instead of getting visa or become naturalised into the United Kingdom. Because, with this sort of laws, the UK is legitimately only allow the ones with paper or ability to file it really. Unless, they are allowed through the processing of the United Nations. While the rest can be sent away or be destined to uncertainty in Rwanda. This is how it seems and what they are willing to do.

The United Kingdom is clearly becoming unfriendly and an island fortress. Because, it is really rich to know that the parents of Patel wouldn’t have gotten through this system. She is basically targeting her own and the kind who came before. This would have blocked the Windrush Generation and others who has come to the UK.

That is just showing how the UK has become. This a result of the independence after Brexit, as the European Union (EU) wouldn’t have accepted these rules and neither would the EU organizations. It is just bound to happen and would have become hostile between Brussels and London. Now, it is just London against the world. While the UK has to adhere to the Withdrawal Agreement with the EU. Nevertheless, the UK and the Tories shows how heartless they are.

People thought the UK-Rwanda deal was a just a one-time thing. No, it is a part of system and legality of which the Tories are changing things. Patel and her Home Office just shows what they are willing to do. This is people in need, fleeing and trying to get away to a safe place. The UK isn’t that place, but a new hostile environment.

The Tories, Patel and everyone who aides the London Government right now. Just shows their insincerity and how they are not concerned about the plights of the asylum-seekers or refugees. The UK is showing the world what sort of state it is, as they want to ensure only the allocated or the ones they are abided to keep after international law is getting there. The rest is after own needs and not if people need protection. Because, they can be easily banished or blocked from entry, possibly even arrested or arrest the one giving them shelter. Also, ensuring the asylum-seeker doesn’t try to or is able to bring his-or-her family to re-unite in the UK.

If that isn’t telling and showing what sort of government there is in London right now. Nothing is and its vicious, brutal and inhumane. That’s who is ruling and running the Home Office right now. A sort of person that is making laws, which her own family and parents would have become qualified to enter. If that isn’t saying something. Nothing is… remember that. Patel’s own family wouldn’t get entry or get visa to the UK in 2022. Yes, they came before these laws and such, but it sets a precedence. Peace.

United Kingdom – Rwanda MoU: Proves that the banishing of the asylum-seeker was the order of the day!

h. “Relocate” means the removal of an asylum seeker from the United Kingdom to Rwanda under this Arrangement” (Memorandum of Understanding between the government of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and the government of the Republic of Rwanda for the provision of an asylum partnership arrangement, 14.04.2022).

If you ever thought the arrangement between the United Kingdom and Rwanda was for the betterment of humanity or for the justice to asylum-seekers. I hate to tell it to you… but this deal or Memorandum of Understanding only shows what sort of plan is at play. The Tories and the HM Government have ensured the asylum-seekers are sent and “relocated” to Rwanda. So, that they are banished from their territory and only the ones who they request for will be available to return to United Kingdom. However, that doesn’t seem to be a real possibility in this.

I have just taken a few paragraphs and sentences from the MoU between the nations and it states very clear what the objective and the ideals of it is. We can wonder, if anyone will be lucky to return to the United Kingdom or even be considered for a request. That sounds like a stipulation only made to ensure some legal grounds and possibility, which will not be enforced. Since, the agreement is about directly “relocating” people from the UK to Rwanda. Not the other way around…

The objective of this Arrangement is to create a mechanism for the relocation of asylum seekers whose claims are not being considered by the United Kingdom, to Rwanda, which will process their claims and settle or remove (as appropriate) individuals after their claim is decided, in accordance with Rwanda domestic law, the Refugee Convention, current international standards, including in accordance with international human rights law and including the assurances given under this Arrangement” (Memorandum of Understanding between the government of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and the government of the Republic of Rwanda for the provision of an asylum partnership arrangement, 14.04.2022).

In order to expedite the process of relocation to Rwanda in a timely manner, the United Kingdom will be responsible for the initial screening of asylum seekers, before relocation to Rwanda occurs in accordance with this Arrangement. This process will start without delay after the prospective relocated person arrives in the United Kingdom and has come to the attention of the United Kingdom” (…) “The United Kingdom will arrange the Relocated Individual’s transport to Rwanda and will ensure that all the necessary authorisations have been obtained from the relevant authorities of the United Kingdom, any countries of transit and Rwanda in relation to the traffic of commercial or chartered flights or other means of transport” (…) “Following a request made by the United Kingdom, Rwanda will take all reasonable steps in accordance with international human rights standards to make a Relocated Individual available for return to the United Kingdom should the United Kingdom be legally obliged to facilitate that person’s return” Memorandum of Understanding between the government of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and the government of the Republic of Rwanda for the provision of an asylum partnership arrangement, 14.04.2022).

This here agreement is made to ensure asylum-seekers and people seeking refugee in the United Kingdom can be sent to Rwanda. The agreement specifies that and it’s obvious about that too. There is no denying in that.

We know that the Tories don’t mind the regime and their lack of concerns of their human rights abuses. The Tories don’t mind how the opposition, dissidents or even government critics gets handled in Rwanda. Because, the Tories with this here deal gets to send their unwanted people packing and with a destination in mind. Where they have to take care and find homes for. That is what is in the deal and this here MoU.

They don’t care if the Rwanda Patriotic Front (RPF) is known for silencing, murdering or assassinating the ones who strays from their path. No, that they pay no mind or isn’t concerned about. We know the Tories just want people gone from their borders and sent packing.

This is why the UK is screening them before sending them away. That means the processing will not be happening after that and most likely not return to the UK. This was the plan all along… Rwanda to takeover the burden of the people or asylum-seekers that the UK doesn’t want. Peace.
