A child is a child, whether they are Syrian or from Afghanistan
18 Nov 2016Diane Abbott, Labour’s Shadow Home Secretary, speaking in response to the Government’s changes around eligibility under the Dubs amendment of the Immigration Act, said: “The Dubs amendment was intended to help the most vulnerable children. A child is a child, whether they are Syrian or from Afghanistan.
“These arbitrary eligibility rules are not only concerning but cruel.
“The Government must fulfil its promise to protect these children and I will continue to challenge their attempts to roll back on their commitment now enshrined in law.”
