According to the party’s representative, Lord Newby, Political Parties do not do enough to use the skills of those who enter the country without a visa.

According to Lord Newby, Liberal Democrats would “allow all asylum seekers to work within three months of arriving in the United Kingdom.”

Current Laws a Waste

Lord Newby criticised the current laws, which he said do not utilise the individual migrants’ talents while wasting the taxpayers’ money.

“Costing the Country”

The current laws involve the migrant “not being allowed to work” while “costing the country,” Lord Newby insisted.

While Prime Minister Rishi Sunak has fought hard for his Rwanda bill to pass through Parliament, Labour could remove it entirely.

Sunak has insisted that the Rwanda Bill would be a “deterrent” to stop people smuggling gangs from bringing migrants to the country illegally, but will it work?

Labour has already declared that no Rwanda flights would take off under its governance, repeatedly calling the scheme a “gimmick.”

No Flights Until After Election

Sunak announced the general election shortly after the Rwanda bill was passed, meaning that flights could only take off after the results.

So far, the bill has not seemed to deter migrants from entering the UK, as small boat crossings show no signs of going down.

Lord Newby previously commented on the Rwanda bill, calling it “reckless” and insisting it would “never work”.

Wasting Taxpayers’ Money

Lord Newby accused the government of “Wasting hundreds of millions of hard working taxpayers’ money,” on the scheme.

Spreading Awareness of Controversial Law

Many people may not be aware of the current law that makes migrants wait 12 months before being able to work, with the Liberal Democrats hoping to shine a light on the matter.
