BRITAIN IS A SOFT TOUCH

NOT TRUE

 

Think about how you would feel having to leave your country very quickly to go to a place where you  have no family, friends and little knowledge of the system.  People fleeing their own country are usually very frightened, often leaving everything they know because their own and their families’ lives are in danger. 

 

Seeking asylum is never an easy option, and on reaching a place of  sanctuary in the UK, all asylum seekers are:

 

-          fingerprinted (even children)

-          photographed

-          security checked

-          issued with ID cards

-           

All must

-          report at regular intervals to immigration reporting centres

 

All can be

 -          detained at any point during their asylum application (including children and pregnant women)
