Taskforce for Victims of Trafficking in Immigration Detention ‘Illegal Migration’ Bill – Second Reading Briefing

March 2023

This Detention Taskforce briefing ahead of the Second Reading on the ‘Illegal Migration’ Bill lays out its deep concerns about the Government’s latest cruel and unworkable legislation that will result in huge numbers of survivors of trafficking and modern slavery being blocked from protection and support; left in long periods of living in limbo; being locked up; and facing the threat of removal. This Bill will play into the hands of traffickers, putting people at further risk of re-trafficking and exploitation, contravening international law and undoing years of protections of victims of modern slavery.
