Petition Reverse decision to close legal routes for unaccompanied minors seeking asylum
Reinstate/Expand the Dubs amendment, or introduce new legislation to open up legal routes for unaccompanied child refugees (under 18s) to seek asylum in the UK.
It is without question a moral obligation as human beings to protect children, especially those in vulnerable positions, from harm. In this case the UK government has left minors fleeing from conflict and potential death at risk of being trafficked, first and foremost. Otherwise, they may resort to other more dangerous methods of entering the country, which has already led to the death and suffering of many.
