We all need to be able to keep safe during this pandemic.

But while the rest of the country are being told to lock down, people seeking asylum are being asked to travel long distances on public transport for video interviews.

Supported by 73 organisations, we have written to the government calling for the release of everyone held in immigration detention. The situation could not be more urgent.

Excellent blog by @EiriOhtani for @AVIDdetention:

"We need to be building communities which care for all, and in that vision, immigration detention is nowhere to be seen."

ICYMI: The former Immigration Minister Caroline Nokes, said that the direction the government is taking to dealing with people who are seeking safety in the UK is 'inhuman' and 'hideously wrong'.

Let's make 2021 a year of compassion, not more hostility.

The very name is a potent symbol of the UK's hostile environment. Yarl's Wood should be shut down, not expanded to house asylum seekers.

Quoted @AfterExpProject

[1/3] Last year, we joined 50+ survivor groups, academics and NGOs calling for Government to protect survivors.

Today's response is shocking.

@Ukhomeoffice will not bar victims from detention + Gov won't support minimum of 12 months' basic support

In this reply, the Safeguarding Minister references the 'Adults at Risk' policy which should protect trafficking survivors from detention. But our work shows that this policy has failed. It's time for real support & an end to detention.

Our director Alphonsine Kabagabo responds:

Quoted @4refugeewomen

For years we've documented and campaigned against the inhumanity of #YarlsWood.

The Home Office's latest plan is to build a portacabin camp there to house men who are seeking asylum in the UK.

Sign the petition against the camp now: #StopYarlsWood

Yesterday, around 350 men went on hunger strike at Napier Barracks in Kent.

Sign the petition in the Tweet below to stop the Home Office from opening another of these camps on the wasteland in the shadow of Yarl's Wood.

Right now, the Home Office is trying to use emergency powers to house people seeking asylum in portacabins in the shadow of Yarl's Wood Immigration Removal Centre.

Now everyone's (rightly) asking why school meal vouchers aren't provided in cash, let's remember section 4 support for refused asylum seekers has been in vouchers (or payment cards) since 1999. Each indignity now visited on low-income families was first trialled on asylum seekers

Caroline Nokes, the former immigration minister, says that the direction the government is taking to dealing with people who are seeking safety in the UK is 'inhuman' and 'hideously wrong'.

It's time to build a humane and compassionate asylum process.

Important interview with @carolinenokes, the former immigration minister, who criticises the Home Office's current 'brutal' approach to people seeking asylum that risks whipping up hatred towards vulnerable people, and causing financial and legal problems.

Listen to Sara here at 20 minutes in:

Quoted @BBCPaulMoss

British Medical Association says it would support allowing asylum seekers who are properly qualified doctors to practice during Covid emergency. #homeoffice rules currently forbid this for one year after arrival. #bma #DOCTORS

This is important. How can the @ukhomeoffice justify preventing qualified health workers from practising during a pandemic? @TheBMA says let them work, so let them work.
