UK sends people to Africa – level 2

17-06-2022 07:00

The UK decided to stop migrants from coming to the country by boats. The journey is very dangerous and many people die on the way.

Most migrants are young single men, and if they get to the UK, they usually get asylum and stay in the country. The British government wants to stop people from risking their lives.

In the next five years, the country will send some migrants to Rwanda. In Rwanda, migrants will wait until officials work with them and their documents. Many people criticize this plan because Rwanda is a poor country with many problems, and migrants stay there in small rooms with only beds.

The UK is one of other countries to send migrants to detention centers. For example, Australia and Denmark have strict immigration policies, and they send migrants to other countries, too.

Difficult words: asylum (a safe place to stay), detention center (a place where illegal migrants stay until officials work with them and their documents), immigration policy (how a country deals with the people who come from other countries).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
