The United Nations refugee agency said the British government’s proposed asylum law was “deeply worrying” and would deter even those with satisfactory claims.

Vicky Tennant, UNHCR’s representative in the UK, told the BBC that the move would violate international law and would not necessarily stop the crossings.

British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak said he was “ready to fight” for the law to be enforced and to overcome legal challenges.

Labor said the plans threatened to “worse the chaos”.
