Britain has introduced new measures to speed up the deportation of foreign criminals, aimed at cracking down on some victims of “modern slavery” who claim to be protected by British law.

Home Secretary Suella Braverman said: “By blatantly abusing the system, it is simply unfair that real victims of modern slavery may have to wait longer to receive the protections they need. “
“The changes coming into effect will mean we have the power to deny you protection and kick you out of our country if you have committed a crime,” she said.
Rishi Sunak’s government has cited a case in which a convicted rapist appealed a Home Office (Home Office) decision to deport him from the UK while introducing the law. The Home Office said the man, who was released on bail pending his appeal, later committed the rape and remained in the UK.

What do the new measures mean?
These measures will take effect under the new Nationality and Borders Act. It means Home Office caseworkers will in future be able to demand evidence of modern slavery rather than take the word of the victim.
What is Suella Braverman’s comment on the new measures?
“We must stop people from taking advantage of our immigration and asylum laws,” Zuella Braverman said, adding, “I am personally determined to crack down on those who abuse the generosity of the British public and give our country a ride.”
