We've joined more than 260 organisations to sign a Joint Statement calling on Peers to reject the Rwanda Bill at Second Reading.

The Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill is a constitutionally extraordinary and deeply harmful piece of legislation. It threatens the universality of human rights and is in breach of international law, striking a serious blow to the UK’s commitment to the rule of law. It was not a Government manifesto commitment - on the contrary, it will hinder the UK’s ability to “continue to grant asylum and support to refugees fleeing persecution”. As a coalition of more than 260 organisations working in and across the UK, we call on Peers to reject the Bill at Second Reading.

Either we all have human rights, or none of us do. The Government must not be allowed to pick and choose when our fundamental rights apply, nor to undermine the ways that we can hold it to account.
