Suella Braverman declares "...there are 100 million people around the world who could qualify for protection under our current laws. And let’s be clear: they are coming here..."
Enver Solomon, the chief executive of the Refugee Council, said it was untrue to claim 100 million people could qualify for asylum in the UK. “To claim that all 100 million people who are facing forced displacement are, or even want to, come to the UK is simply untrue. No refugee wants to leave their home and the reality is that 75% of the world’s refugees are hosted by countries neighbouring the one people have left.”
