    Thousands of displaced asylum seekers who’s application for a UK visa were refused are facing eviction and deportation. 

    According to a recent letter from the Home Office, the expulsion of these rejected asylum seekers will happen “immediately.” All those who have not received asylum in the UK and who have no pending appeal applications will be affected by this. Asylum applicants will be given notice to leave the UK within 21 days based on this letter, with no chance to rely on public assistance.

    Asylum seekers are presently housed in a temporary hotel paid for by local authorities after one immigration detention centre, Morton Hall, closed and another, Yarls Wood, is about to close.

    Detention Action’s director, Bella Sankey, claimed that a rise in the number of persons being held in immigration detention has been observed by her organisation and many others. She added:

    “Huge numbers of these people will have initial asylum refusals overturned on appeal and others cannot be removed while flights are grounded so this is punitive politicised decision-making at its worst.”

    Commenting the decision of the UKVI, a Home Office spokesperson said:

    “The phased cessation of support has now begun in order to reduce the demand on the asylum system. We have been clear from the outset that this was a temporary measure which would be brought to an end as soon as it was safe to do so.

    “Those who have received a negative asylum decision, which means they have no right to remain the UK, are given a 21-day grace period. During this time, they are expected to make steps to return to their country of origin while still remaining in accommodation and receiving support.

    “Assistance is available for those who leave voluntarily, but for those who do not, enforcement action may be taken to facilitate removal.”
