The Nationality & Borders Bill, what can you do?

Posted on Monday, November 22nd, 2021

The Anti-Refugee Bill (Nationality and Borders Bill) is soon returning to the House of Commons, which means it is time for us to use our voices and contact our local MPs and raise our concerns as a community that historically relies on just and fair laws for asylum seekers and migrants.

Take action by writing to your MP now!

What is the Nationality and Borders Bill?

  • This legislation, ruled to undermine international law and do great harm to migrants and asylum seekers, represents the biggest attack on the refugee protection system that we have ever seen and will close the door to desperate people who arrive in the UK to seek safety. Read a summary here.
  • How does this bill threaten asylum and refugee rights, and why should we care as Jews? Read our summary response to the overall plans here
  • Why should we care simply as citizens? Learn more about the wider campaign to support refugees and asylum seekers, led by the Detention Forum, here

How can I raise awareness?

  • Tap into your sphere of influence: In addition to posting  to your personal social media, remember to also share with your youth movement/friendship group/synagogue year Whatsapp/ Instagram/facebook groups too! Encourage your synagogue or youth group to share the assets provided and inform people of what is happening
