Working with our French counterparts, our focus is on deterring and preventing people from entering the Channel, tackling the criminal gangs responsible and protecting lives.

The new Migration and Economic Partnership with Rwanda, together with the provisions of the Nationality and Borders Act also seek to create a deterrent effect.
