Migrants who crossed the Channel wil be notified by the Home Office that they face a one-way ticket to the East African nation.

Home Secretary Priti Patel said: “Britain’s asylum system is broken as criminals exploit and smuggle people into our country at huge costs to UK taxpayers.

“The world-leading migration partnership with Rwanda means those making the  illegal journey to the UK will be relocated to Rwanda to have their claims for asylum considered and to rebuild their lives there.’’

“This is just the first stage of the process and we know it will take time as some will seek to frustrate the process and delay removals.’’

“I will not be deterred from acting to deliver on the changes the British people voted for to take back control of our money, laws and borders.”
