The Indefinite Detention Scandal
“The hostile environment and indefinite detention are two of the biggest stains on our democracy”
The UK’s policy of indefinite immigration detention is a stain on its human rights record. Being detained in prison-like conditions, for purely administrative purposes and with no release date, puts individuals, families and communities under unimaginable strain.
It affects people who have lived in the UK since childhood. It is scooping up survivors of human trafficking and modern slavery. It happens to tens of thousands of people trying to live their lives in this country.
Watch the video, it’s nothing short of a national scandal.
