Backlash against Britain's ‘unlawful' plan to deport foreigners sleeping on the streets


The British government's plan to deport foreign citizens sleeping on UK streets is unlawful, legal campaigners said.

The Home Office announced last month that rough sleeping would become grounds to cancel or refuse a person's right to be in the UK under new immigration rules, which come into effect on December 1. The move drew criticism from human rights groups, charities and opposition MPs.

Such a scenario could mean a foreign citizen who was working in the UK but lost his or her job because of the coronavirus pandemic and was made temporarily homeless, could now be deported.
