Don’t Detain Victims of Human Trafficking to Meet Immigration Targets

Target: UK Prime Ministers, Rt Hon. Boris Johnson MP

Goal: Protect survivors of modern slavery from being detained for their immigration status.

Thousands of suspected victims of human trafficking have been detained in prison like centers due to their immigration status. Authorities noted indicators that individuals may have been trafficked into the UK, yet still proceeded to process them as criminals. Advocats have sounded the alarm, declaring that survivors of human trafficking are in need of aid, yet they are being subjected to further trauma.

Officials responded making it clear that their priority was to meet immigration targets. This is a terrible act against humanity and the perpetrators must be held accountable. Sign the petition below to demand legal protection for victims of human trafficking from immigration penalties. 

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Johnson

Victims of human trafficking are in need of aid and support. They have been forcibly relocated and it is by no means reasonable to prosecute such individuals based on their immigration status. This is a violation of human rights and a grave injustice. One that has by no means been overlooked by the public eye. 

It is time you reassess your priorities. Meeting immigration targets is no excuse for further traumatizing victims of modern slavery. There needs to be legal protection in place for people who have been relocated against their will. I must insist that you do diligence by implementing specific policy and procedure that recognizes the circumstances by which individuals arrive in the UK, and extend aid to those who display signs of trafficking.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
