To Home Secretary Priti Patel
Don’t punish those trying to find safety
Please provide safe refuge for the people risking their lives to get to the UK by boat and ensure the UK prioritises saving lives, rather than punishing refugees and migrants.
No person would take a life threatening journey across the sea unless they were desperate. These are human beings who are trying to protect their children and find safety and a better life for their family - to punish them for this is inhumane.
The UK must not move towards a system that punishes people looking for safety and in need of refuge, we’ve seen what these policies like these can lead to elsewhere in the world.
Instead, Britain should aspire to be a country that stands up for those who are in danger and welcomes those that need a home.
