The British government is coming under fire for a newly announced plan to send asylum seekers to Rwanda. The new policy, meant to curb the increasing flow of asylum seekers and migrants to the UK, will send people seeking refuge in Britain to Rwanda instead, where their cases will be processed and where they will be settled if their applications are approved. While the UK and Rwanda have presented the plan as beneficial for both countries and for migrants attempting to come to Britain, the announcement has been greeted with widespread criticism and condemnation.
