Among suggestions -annual salary over £35k in order to get a work visa
Which either suggests agricultural & social care workers will get a bumper pay rise or will be excluded - but attempts to bar undercutting locals wages make sense - if we're getting hundreds of (eg) IT workers earning below that on work visas there's something wrong
A focus on 27k boat people is BS when there are 672k mostly here legally
#Jenrick on #Peston last night explained to idiots like myself that the #RwandaTreaty coupled with forthcoming legislation will ensure that #Rwanda is a perfectly safe country. This new exciting piece of legislation will also explain that the rotund, white bearded gentlemen who dresses in a fetching red and white costume, is capable of depositing to every one of Earth's children a most splendid gift all within the space of 24 hours
Such joyous magical thinking from this most blessed Tory xxx

"It was an act of mean-spiritedness that shocked people across the political spectrum. In April, a UK government minister ordered a mural of cartoon characters at a reception centre for migrants to be painted over lest children mistook it as a sign of welcome."

The UK’s illegal migration bill is a nasty piece of work. So is the cruelty inflicted on refugee children - Alf Dubs
#Jenrick: "The UK has the most comprehensive plan to tackle illegal migration of any European country"

"The Nasty Party"
Back in 2002, Theresa May (ex Conservative Prime Minister) coined the phrase in reference to Conservative Party members with traditional conservative stances which included being anti-gay, anti-minorities, and pro-business, and lacking concern for the poor.
Look at them now!

The UK immigration minister says “Any genuine child who comes into the United Kingdom will be swiftly taken into the local authority care system.”
Can't imagine what he means, having been an inauthentic child myself from about the age of five when the fun stopped.
Edited to pin this on #Jenrick – the man who had cartoon murals in a refugee children's reception centre painted over because they looked too welcoming. The muralists now say they will repaint them bigger and better.
I could not agree with this article more. Conservatives were once the (self-proclaimed) party of family values. Imagine!
"Jenrick’s vileness reverberates because he is not some maverick child-cruncher, but an emblem of a government that has, for utterly bewildering reasons, deliberately focused its austerity on families and children. They have borne the brunt, not by accident, but with intent. "

Robert #Jenrick rebuked by watchdog for false claim over criminals posing as modern slaves
Rebuke isn’t good enough. He is in government in a position of responsibility and should be penalised heavily for lying. It’s the only way to stop the lies.
'Enver Solomon, CEO of the Refugee Council, said Mr Jenrick gave the order as he visited the Kent asylum intake unit earlier this year.'
“The Immigration Minister said pictures of cartoons and animals must be removed and that staff should make sure they are painted over, as they give an impression of welcoming, which Mr #Jenrick didn’t want to show.'
“This demonstrates that the hostile environment has become so entrenched, that today we have lost sight of humanity.”
#Jenrick initially said "thousands" of illegal migrants were being returned to Albania, before clarifying that "hundreds" had been returned since the agreement was signed six months ago.
Sophy #Ridge asked him again: "How many people who've arrived on small boats have been returned to Albania?"
He replied that "thousands of Albanians are returning to Albania".
The Dublin III Regulation once allowed the UK to return migrants to other EU countries but we can't use that anymore as we have left the European Union, its levers, and its mechanism, to take back control of immigration.
Instead, we struck a deal with Albania, a tiny country outside of EU and of that only a couple of 100 people have gone back.
"I will never put the interests of migrants above those of the British public" - #Jenrick
a man so close to Fascism
Hysterical . ..
"Well, there are 1000s. ..."
Sophy interrupts him with, "How many of those who arrived in small boats have been returned to Albania?"
"Well, there are 100s ..."
He seems incapable of giving an exact answer. Useless, considering he is the immigration minister.
Either he got his facts wrong or he lied. Tories are good at lying.
#Jenrick on migration bill:
“The vast majority of those individuals coming on small boats are coming from an obvious place of safety in France with a fully functioning asylum system, so they’re choosing to make that additional crossing.
They are essentially asylum shoppers, even if they ultimately came from a place of danger.”
- asylum seekers don’t have to claim asylum in first country they get to under international law
- acknowledges refugees come from danger but portrayed as consumers?!
