The British government announced on Tuesday that it intended to pass new legislation to prohibit immigrants from remaining in the nation after crossing the English Channel.
The Rishi Sunak-led administration is attempting to stem a wave of immigrants who are coming on its southern shore in small boats.
According to government statistics, Albanians make up the majority of persons arriving in England via the English Channel, with the number of people doing so more than doubling in the last two years.
Rishi Sunak, the prime minister, who was born in Southeast Africa to immigrant parents who were of Indian ancestry, reveals the new policy on Tuesday, December 13 2022.
What Is The Rishi Sunak Immigration Policy?
Sunak announced a new five-point strategy to combat illegal immigration, including initiatives to speed up the return of Albanian asylum seekers and eliminate the initial backlog of about 150 thousand asylum cases by the end of the next year, boosting the number of social workers involved.
- “If you enter the UK illegally, you cannot stay here,” Sunak told parliament. “Instead, you will be detained and quickly returned to your home country or to a safe country where your asylum application will be considered.”

Rishi Sunak Conservative Party On Immigration
The Conservative government has made illegal immigration a top priority, especially in working-class districts of northern and central England where immigrants are blamed for making it difficult to find employment and taxing public services.
In the future, migrants would be kept in surplus military facilities, former student housing, and abandoned recreational parks rather than hotels, according to Sunak, who also announced the creation of a new unit to handle border crossings.
The arrival of the vessels was promised to be stopped by successive British governments. Despite this, a record number of 44,867 persons entered the UK this year by traveling across the English Channel in tiny boats.
The Britain’s decision to leave the European Union in 2016 was motivated by worries over the volume of immigration, with supporters urging the nation to “take back control” of its borders.
However, Rishi Sunak’s policies have received extensive criticism on social media from those who claim he wants impoverished people.
