Episode details

We have a Home Secretary in Suella Braverman who describes people who are mostly fleeing war, persecution, hunger and torture as an “invasion”; dangerous overcrowding at the Manston Processing Centre in Kent: and a backlog of 100,000 asylum cases.

So what's wrong with the UK's asylum system?

Adrian Goldberg hears from Sile Reynolds, Head of Asylum Advocacy at Freedom From Torture, and Amreen Qureshi, a research fellow with a focus on migration at the IPR think tank.
