LibDems Announce Humane Immigration and Asylum Policy

 

Social cohesion is key to allowing people to integrate into our communities, and a humane immigration and asylum policy is vital if we are to fight the rise of hate-crimes towards fleeing persecution or seeking a better life. Liberal Democrat Shadow Home Secretary, Christine Jardine, recently outlined the party's compassionate approach to immigration and asylum. Sandwell has had more than its fair share of an immigration system that is broken, and it is hurting everyone.
