Withdraw from the 1951 Refugee Convention to deter illegal attempts to enter UK

Petition Details

We do not have a problem with genuine refugees. However, one of the reasons for Brexit was to take control of our borders, and we believe some lawyers take advantage of the 1951 convention to enable immigrants who have illegally entered the UK to remain in the UK.

Additional Information

I am the son of two immigrants who entered the UK legally from India. By failing to withdraw from this convention, we believe the UK is misdirecting resources, that could be used to help those in genuine need, to support people who entered the UK illegally. We must withdraw!
