Letter to government on health and wellbeing of migrants

I have written to the Government along with my Socialist Campaign Group colleagues – Bell Ribeiro-Addy MP, Zarah Sultana MP & Claudia Webbe MP – calling for an urgent and comprehensive action plan to safeguard and protect the health and wellbeing of all migrants at this difficult time.

This must include:

  • Granting all NHS staff fighting the corona virus the indefinite leave to remain
  • Ending the No Recourse to Public Funds Policy and ensuring that all migrants have automatic access to resources without fear of detention or deportation
  • Amnesty for undocumented migrants
  • Scrapping the immigration healthcare surcharge
  • Closing all immigration detention centres
