UK: Rwanda deportation ruling appealed as prince sparks row

Source: Associated Press

“Opponents of the British government’s plan to deport migrants to Rwanda are preparing for an appeals court hearing Monday amid the political backlash following reports that Prince Charles had privately described the policy as ‘appalling.’ A coalition of groups including immigration rights advocates and public employee unions will ask the Court of Appeal in London to reverse a lower court ruling allowing the first deportation flight to go ahead as scheduled on Tuesday. … Charles’s comments are problematic because he is the heir to the throne and the British monarch is supposed to remain above the political fray.” (06/12/22)
