Since becoming the Member of Parliament for Sheffield Hallam I have spoken to many constituents who have suffered from the barbarity of our asylum system. From being forced into unsafe and inappropriate housing, having to report in-person at Home Office reporting centres at the peak of the pandemic; or going long periods in unhygienic facilities without access to adequate food or healthcare, the Hostile Environment is still in full force.
We need an asylum system that takes human dignity as its starting point, which enshrines fairness and justice for all. I’m supporting Sheffield’s day of action against the Hostile Environment, and encourage all constituents to join this important campaign demanding justice for our migrant siblings.
