Will asylum seekers be sent to rwanda after high court ruling?

Channel 4 News published this video item, entitled “Will asylum seekers be sent to Rwanda after High Court ruling?” – below is their description.

The government’s plan to deport asylum seekers to Rwanda was supposed to deter people from trying to cross the Channel to reach the UK on small boats.

40,000 have done so this year.

But the first flight to the east African country in June was grounded after legal challenges.

Today, though, senior judges ruled the policy was lawful and Home Secretary Suella Braverman said she was “committed” to making it work.
