The government’s hostile environment policy treats immigrants in the UK in the most callous way.
By denying thousands of people their basic needs such as healthcare, housing or employment this policy is devastating people’s lives. It forces landlords, employers and doctors to act as border guards and is spreading fear and encouraging discrimination.
Last year's Windrush scandal exposed this appalling system. Yet in response, home secretary Sajid Javid has changed the word 'hostile' to 'compliant', while keeping the fundamentals in place.
We must call time on the hostile environment and make our country a safe and welcoming place to be for everyone.
Please sign this petition to Sajid Javid and tell him to put an end to this horrible policy for good.
