Rwanda asylum seeker scheme unlawful, UK Supreme Court rules – BBC News

The UK Supreme Court has ruled the government’s Rwanda asylum seeker scheme is unlawful.

The plan is designed to deter people crossing in small boats across the Channel.

Once in Rwanda, people could claim asylum there, return home, or seek asylum in a third country – not the UK.

But since being announced, the plan has been thwarted by legal challenges.
