The British government has found itself embroiled in legal disputes with non-governmental organizations opposed to the deportation of immigrants who have entered the UK without authorization and who are destined for Rwanda.
This contentious matter revolves around an agreement forged between the United Kingdom and Rwanda, with the former seeking to provide support to immigrants in their transition to life in Rwanda and offer them various forms of assistance.
Recently, the High Court in England made a decision declaring the act of deporting migrants to Rwanda as unlawful. However, the British Government promptly lodged an appeal.
The subsequent verdict from the Supreme Court, as reported by The Daily Mail, ruled in favor of the legality of deportations, setting the stage for the first group of immigrants to arrive in Rwanda on February 24, 2024. Those who entered the UK illegally have been notified of their potential deportation to Rwanda.
In preparation for this significant development, civil servants have been engaged in the process of selecting the migrants who will be included in the first flight upon court approval.
Additionally, aside from Rwanda, the United Kingdom is reportedly in negotiations with five other African nations, exploring potential agreements to aid the European nation in receiving and resettling illegal immigrants.
