The British Prime Minister, Rishi Sunak, is introducing new laws to control migration to the country.
In a series of tweets, Sunak said illegal migrants would be deported and permanently barred from re-entering the UK.
The new legislation, called the ‘Illegal Migration Bill’, will affect those crossing the English Channel in small boats.
The prime minister said their illegal entry is unfair to those who play by the rules in Britain.
Sunak added that the illegal migrants had overwhelmed the asylum system which is why they would no longer be able to claim the benefit.
The new law is the latest in the UK’s aspiration to cut down migration and control its borders.
