Greens welcome Supreme Court decision on deportations to Rwanda

15 November 2023

Reacting to news that the Supreme Court has blocked government plans to send asylum seekers to Rwanda, Green Party co-leader Carla Denyer said: 

"This is welcome news. The government must now admit that its cruel and inhumane policy is finished and drop it.

"The new Home Secretary has the chance now to turn over a new leaf and make clear that there is no intention to quit the European Convention on Human Rights.  

‘He should pledge to create an asylum system that works. That is one with clear, open, safe and legal routes for applicants, quick and efficient determinations and support for resettlement into local communities with properly funded local services.”
