Failed Asylum Seekers And Section 9 Of The Asylum And Immigration Act 2004

Abbott, Diane
That this House notes with considerable concern the findings of 
leading refugee welfare charities that the threat of economic 
destitution and removal of the children of failed asylum seekers who 
refuse to leave the UK, as set out in section 9 of the Asylum and 
Immigration Act 2004, has driven failed asylum seekers further 
underground; further notes that out of 116 failed asylum-seeking 
families targeted in a 12 month pilot scheme only one family has left 
the country; deplores the fact that 60 families have had all state 
housing and welfare support withdrawn and 32 families have lost all 
contact with social services leaving their children acutely 
vulnerable; believes that section 9 has failed to achieve its 
intended purpose; and calls on the Government to repeal this 
ineffective and inhumane section of the Asylum and Immigration Act
