The campaign for a time limit on immigration detention


Sign the open letter now - our urgent response to government rejection of legal protections for people in detention:

To Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Home Secretary Priti Patel,

It is unacceptable that you continue to ignore the evidence on your harmful policy of indefinite immigration detention.

This year, two official independent reports have called for a 28-day time limit to protect the basic human rights of migrants. One “found serious problems with almost every element of the immigration detention system”

You have ignored both.

We call on you to immediately take steps to:

1. Adopt an absolute, universal time limit of 28 days for immigration detention

2. Adopt proper legal protections against unfair detention

3. Protect the human rights and dignity of migrants
