Rwanda: Asylum seeker deportation flight to go ahead

Channel 4 News published this video item, entitled “Rwanda: Asylum seeker deportation flight to go ahead” – below is their description.

Downing Street insists the flight taking asylum seekers to Rwanda will go ahead as planned tomorrow, after the Court of Appeal rejected a legal challenge.

The prime minister said it was necessary to stop illegal people smuggling rackets both in the UK and France.

The SNP compared it to state-sponsored people trafficking. Labour said it was “completely unworkable, deeply unethical and extortionately expensive”.
