The British migrant plan for Rwanda may never get off the ground

The controversial plan to fly thousands of asylum seekers from Britain to Rwanda may never get off the ground after Prime Minister Rishi Sunak said on Thursday there would be no deportations before national elections in July.

After taking office in October 2022, Sunak made the plan to send migrants who arrived in Britain without permission to the East African nation one of his key policies. He said this would put an end to the thousands of asylum seekers crossing the Channel in small boats.

In April, Sunak promised the first flights would depart in the next 10 to 12 weeks, after parliament finally passed a law aimed at bypassing legal hurdles that had held up the plan for more than two years.
