Abstract

Recent months have seen a new phase of anti-immigrant policymaking in the UK, characterised by a shift in deportations away from predominantly targeting foreign nationals with a criminal record to targeting refugees regardless of whether they committed a crime or not. UK government rhetoric on immigration, whilst having peddled xenophobia for at least a decade, now focuses distinctly on criminalising refugees who arrived via unregulated routes and the Home secretary famously threatened to push back migrant boats into the English channel using military force.
