Before the next election, Liberty is calling on all MPs and parliamentary candidates to sign our asylum election pledge.
Ask your MP to remember Britain’s history as a place of refuge for the persecuted. Show your representatives that you reject xenophobia in discussions about asylum and immigration policy.
Asylum Election Pledge
“There is no place for racism and xenophobia in modern British politics. Nor is democratic debate advanced by the denigration of the most vulnerable in our country, including children and asylum seekers who do not enjoy the right to participate in elections.
I promise to remember the importance of refugee protection, even in free and wide-ranging debates about immigration policy. I will never play fast and loose with the proud tradition of a nation that must always offer succour to those in genuine fear of persecution.”
