UK to sign deal to send asylum seekers to Rwanda for processing – BBC News – Latest News Today

UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson is set to unveil plans that will see some asylum seekers flown to Rwanda in order to have their asylum applications processed.

The trial scheme would mean single men arriving in Britain via Channel crossings could be forcibly removed.

Refugee organisations have criticised the plans as cruel and urged a rethink.

The deal is expected to see the Rwanda, which is part of the Commonwealth, given an initial £120m as part of a trial, but opponents say the annual cost of the full scheme would be far higher.
