Home Secretary of the United Kingdom, Priti Patel, has criticised those who are condemning the government’s plan to send asylum seekers to Rwanda, saying they have failed to offer solutions.
According to Ms. Patel, she and Rwandan foreign minister, Vincent Biruta, had proposed an innovative answer to the deadly trade of people-smuggling.
Ms Patel and Vincent Biruta, said the global asylum system was collapsing under the pressure of humanitarian crises and human trafficking.
Their resolution came days after Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby said there were serious ethical questions about the plan.
