The home secretary has declared that asylum seekers whose applications have been denied will now be included in the cohort being deported to Rwanda.

James Cleverly announced that the UK has expanded its agreement with Rwanda to encompass individuals who have entered the UK unlawfully, sought asylum, and subsequently had their claims denied.

Before, the policy targeted individuals who entered the UK illegally starting from January 1, 2022, and whose applications might be considered inadmissible, though not formally denied, for relocation to the African nation.

The strategy was for the asylum seekers to have their applications reviewed in Rwanda, and if approved, they could remain there, or otherwise, they would need to apply for asylum in a different country.

Individuals whose asylum applications have been denied will receive a comprehensive support program for up to five years in Rwanda, which encompasses assistance with education, vocational training, job placement, and housing.

The initiative involving Rwanda was initially unveiled by Boris Johnson in 2022, aimed at discouraging individuals from undertaking perilous voyages in small boats across the Channel to enter the UK.

The contentious policy has faced numerous setbacks, been declared illegal by the Supreme Court, and come under criticism from various charities and political adversaries.

Rishi Sunak prioritized this initiative during his leadership campaign, enacting new laws intended to address the judicial apprehensions and committed to initiating flights by July.

However, his detractors persist in their criticism of the plan, arguing that it might result in the UK violating international human rights legislation.
