DECRYPTION – This Wednesday, November 15, the British Supreme Court ruled illegal the government’s plan to send illegally entered asylum seekers to Rwanda.
Rishi Sunak persists and signs. Despite the censure of the highest British court, the Prime Minister indicated this Wednesday, November 15 that he was already working on a “new treaty» with Rwanda, where he wants to expel asylum seekers who arrived illegally on British territory. The processing of their requests would thus be outsourced to Africa, to prevent them from remaining on British territory if they are rejected.
The United Kingdom is not the first to want to implement these famous “hot spots“. Born after the unprecedented migration crisis which hit the Old Continent in 2015, the idea is currently gaining strength in a number of European countries, also facing a new peak in arrivals. In 2022, European Union countries received 962,000 asylum applications. Most of them are inadmissible. But a large proportion of those rejected are not actually expelled, regardless of the European country concerned.
