What's behind the UK's deportation deal with Rwanda | DW News

The British government insists it will carry on with its plan to send unwanted asylum seekers to Rwanda despite widespread criticism. The UK wants to prevent migrants from coming to its shores through unauthorized routes, so it’s threatening any such potential arrivals that they’ll be expelled to Rwanda. In return, Rwanda is getting 150 million dollars and a chance to promote itself as a hospitable haven.
Rwanda is offering asylum seekers up to 5 years stay with access to education and support. Human rights groups say the UK is shunning its responsibility to grant protection to asylum seekers, sending them to a country with a questionable human rights record.
