Syrian and Afghan refugees on first deportation flight to Rwanda, say charities
Home Secretary Priti Patel announced on Tuesday the first deportation flight to Rwanda will leave on 14 June and migrants are beginning to receive notices informing them of who will be on that plane.
Syrian and Afghan refugees are believed to be on the list of people set to be deported to Rwanda in a fortnight, charities have said.
Zoe Gardner, head of policy and advocacy at the Joint Council for the Welfare of Immigrants (JCWI), said 15 Syrians have been told they will be sent to Rwanda in two weeks.
