The British government today unveiled what it says is the biggest reform of asylum rules in decades, saying the current system is “overwhelming. The new rules will make it more difficult for illegal immigrants to stay in the country, which the Home Secretary, John Patel, said was a tough but fair system.

The New Plan for Immigration will be “based on the real need for asylum, not on the ability of human smugglers to pay”, said Priti Patel. “.
The reform plan focuses on identifying genuine asylum seekers, deterring illegal entry and changing rules to make it easier to deport people who have “no right” to remain in the U.K.
Bartels told the BBC, “We are considering options on how to reform the whole asylum system, which is quite important for people fleeing persecution in terrible parts of the world.”
Bartel noted, “We have to break this pattern of human trafficking, we have to implement provisions that are safe and legal, and in fact must be able to help genuine asylum seekers so that they can not only be free from persecution, but also settle in the UK.”
