While the UK likes to present its humanitarian face when talking about Ukrainian refugees, brown or black migrants are treated as third-class humans. The Rwanda deal is the most prominent example of the increasing anti-human and perfidious policy of externalized migration control. Until the UK meets its responsibilities, it must forfeit any right to portray itself as a champion of human rights.
One thing must not be forgotten when discussing the asylum pact: The majority of Britons welcome the deportation of illegal asylum seekers to Rwanda. At the same time, Britain is far more tolerant and welcoming of ethnic minorities than most of Europe. The problem is the misconceived ideology of "multiculturalism," which leads to uncontrolled immigration and puts Britain's social cohesion and political stability at risk.
