Discrimination in Britain has become a severe problem for minorities and immigrants. Britain is becoming a discriminatory society for minority ethnic groups and immigrants. Arbitrary extremism alongside the conservative Government’s unjust treatment has made the conditions difficult for immigrants.
Violation of UN immigration laws by the British government
UK government is breaking UN convention on racial discrimination due to ‘systemic racism’, a report claims. The report by the Runnymede Trust claims some government approaches to racial inequalities are making the conditions worse. A REPORT HAS CLAIMED THAT the UK government is breaching several articles of a UN convention on racial discrimination. According to research by the Runnymede Trust, racism is still “systemic” in England. The study shows that legislation, institutional practices, and customs harm ethnic minority groups. People from ethnically diverse backgrounds face inequalities across health, the criminal justice system, education, employment, immigration and politics (Sky News). Nationality and Borders Bill
As it says in the UK Parliament, the Nationality and Borders Bill seek to achieve the below goals. 1) to increase the system’s fairness to protect better and support those in need of asylum. 2) to deter illegal entry into the United Kingdom, thereby breaking the business model of people smuggling networks and protecting the lives of those they endanger. 3) to remove those with no right to be in the UK more easily.
UK Borders Bill against UN human rights
Discrimination in Britain is increasing with the proposal of the UK Borders Bill. As it says in the UN News, UK Borders Bill increases risks of discrimination and human rights violations. Lawmakers are debating the Bill in the United Kingdom. The Bill increases the risk of discrimination and “serious human rights violations”. It breaches the country’s responsibilities under international law.
According to UN Human Rights, the right to seek and enjoy asylum is a fundamental human right. If lawmakers pass the Bill, it can penalize asylum-seekers and refugees. It will violate the principle of non-punishment in international law. It will discriminate between asylum seekers, which is against international law. According to experts, the Government repeatedly wants to fight against trafficking and modern slavery. However, what the Government says does not match its action. The Government must ensure equal protection of the law for all victims of trafficking and modern slavery without discrimination.
Deprivation of citizenship
As it says in GOV.UK, maintaining our national security and keeping the public safe are the Government’s top priorities. Deprivation of citizenship refers to removing someone’s British citizenship. The UK government uses Deprivation of citizenship against those who obtained citizenship by fraud. They also use it against the most dangerous people, such as terrorists, extremists and serious organized criminals.
According to UN Human Rights, experts say “the Bill will increase the possibility of arbitrary Deprivation of citizenship. It has a troubled history rooted in racism and discrimination. The Bill increases the risks of discrimination and serious human rights violations, particularly against minorities, migrants, and refugees.
Terrorism and Deprivation of citizenship
Deprivation of citizenship is a clear sign of discrimination in Britain. Terrorism is only an excuse for the British Government to deprive refugees of British citizenship. The British Government claims to stop terrorism by making complex rules against immigrants. Terrorism According to the Guardian, Matt Jukes said the vast majority of those plotting terrorist atrocities are British. They are British born or raised and not asylum seekers. Matt Jukes is the country’s most senior counter-terrorism officer. He is the head of counter-terrorism policing.
Lucy Mayblin’s Comments about the asylum system
Lucy Maybin is a Senior Lecturer in Sociology at the University of Sheffield. She says the Bill wants to tell the British public that Priti Patel is tough on illegal immigration. The numbers of asylum applications are historically low, particularly in light of the pandemic. Successive rounds of new legislation since the early 2000s have made getting to the UK very difficult. The asylum system is slow, opaque, under-resourced, and hostile to the people that it must support. It takes a long time to decide cases, and the initial decisions are often wrong: 43% overturned on appeal.
Extremists’ discrimination against immigrants
In addition to the Government, British extremists also expand Discrimination in Britain. According to Sky News, Shazia Nasreen, a healthcare assistant in Walsall, said she was targeted, as a Muslim, for wearing a headscarf and had had stones thrown at her. “They think I’ve come in as a migrant even though I was born in this country… I get questioned – ‘Are you allowed to work? Does your husband allow you to work? Are you allowed out the house?’ This is in this day and age.” Dr Jones, a lecturer in sociology and religious studies, said he found that much of the hostility came from the upper and middle classes.
Chinese university lecturer Peng Wang was attacked by a gang of men in South Hampton. When asked what the men told him during the attack, he said, “They were saying things like Chinese virus, get out of the country and dirty words”. Shazia Nasreen’s and Peng Wang’s cases are only two examples of discrimination against immigrants. The British Government does not protect immigrants against extremists’ attacks. The Government seems to encourage such attacks. Thus the British Government is the leading cause of discrimination in Britain.
