Sinak government strategy – The package of “anti-rubber boat” measures being considered by Parliament in Westminster states that anyone who lands on British coasts illegally will not be detained in the hotel used to house asylum seekers (currently costing taxpayers £6m a day) but in cEnter reservationwithout the possibility of objection or appeal. Except for some cases, such as the case the palace or affected persons diseaseswould be illegal immigrants Disqualified As soon as possible from the UK: return them to their country of origin or deport them to ‘safe’ countries like Rwanda with which the Home Office has already signed a million dollar agreement.
