You may have seen news about the upcoming Borders Bill, which if passed, will make it a criminal offence to knowingly arrive in the UK without permission to be here. Hope for Justice has major concerns about what these proposals could mean for survivors, as the safe routes to the UK will now be rendered illegal. This Bill will mean criminals will target highly vulnerable people, those of which will then be at risk of penalisation.
We urged you to have your say, to speak up on behalf of the voiceless by sending in suggested answers during the the public consultation stage of the New Plan for Immigration.
We now urge you to take action again, and write a letter to your local MP’s stating your concerns before it is debated on in Parliament on the 19th and 20th July 2021.
Remember, every opened lock on our Freedom Wall represents a real life changed. These proposals would make it harder to help them. Let’s support survivors of modern slavery by speaking up for what we believe today.
Thank you for taking the time to do something important on behalf of the least, the last, and the lost.
