Boris Johnson has revealed the first 50 migrants have been told they will be sent to Rwanda under the government’s controversial resettlement scheme.

The Prime Minister told the Daily Mail he expected a lot of legal opposition from what he called Leftie’s lawyers, but insisted the government would engage in the fight .

Under the widely criticized policy, asylum seekers deemed to have arrived in the UK illegally must now be given a one-way ticket to East Africa, where their claims will be processed.

If successful, they will be granted asylum or refugee status in the country.

Those whose offers have failed will be offered the option of applying for visas under other immigration routes if they wish to remain in Rwanda but could still be deported.

The Archbishop of Canterbury, Tory backbenchers including former Prime Minister Theresa May, opposition MPs and more than 160 charities are among critics of the plans.

Mr Johnson said the first 50 illegal entrants to this country have already been notified that they will be sent to Rwanda within a fortnight.

He added: There will be a lot of legal opposition from the types of companies who have for a long time taken taxpayers’ money to set up this kind of business and to thwart the will of the people, the will of Parliament . Were ready for it.

We’re going to dig in for the fight and you know, we’re going to make it work. We have a huge flowchart of things we need to do to deal with it, with left-handed lawyers.

Asked if he could respond with a review of the European Convention on Human Rights, Mr Johnson replied: Well, look at everything. Nothing is on the table.

Guidelines issued by the Interior Ministry earlier this month said Rwanda is a safe country to relocate people to.

However, an assessment carried out before the UK-Rwanda deal revealed some concerns about its human rights record regarding political opposition to the current regime, dissent and freedom of expression.

The Home Office said it would carry out a risk assessment on a case-by-case basis when determining a person’s eligibility for resettlement and would consider all vulnerabilities, including disabilities, orientation and sex change status.

The department noted that transgender people may be at increased risk of mistreatment such as arbitrary arrest and detention as well as degrading treatment, adding that no one will be relocated if it is unsafe or inappropriate.

There were also concerns about the treatment of some LGBTQI+ people in Rwanda, but this did not amount to persecution or serious harm, the interior ministry said.

He also pointed to unverified reports that LGBTQ+ asylum seekers had encountered difficulties in registering their claims, but said Rwanda was committed to treating all refugees equally and that monitoring arrangements procedures were in place to manage the risk.

We will continue to review the impact on this group and consider further evidence over the course of the partnership, the Home Office said.

Unaccompanied under 18s arriving in the UK will not be considered for relocation to Rwanda.

Anyone considered will receive a notice of intent, with the Home Office prioritizing those arriving in the UK after May 9.

The UK pays the processing fee for each person sent to Rwanda, including social workers, access to legal advice, translators, accommodation, food, healthcare and up to five years training to facilitate integration.

Mr Johnson said tens of thousands of people could be airlifted to Rwanda under the deal.

But The Times reported that modeling by Home Office officials indicated only 300 a year could be sent there.

The department later said it did not recognize the figure and that there was no limit to the number of people who could be sent to Rwanda.

Bella Sankey, director of Detention Action, one of the organizations threatening legal action against the plan, said: There is nothing global about this deal, it is a neocolonial embarrassment that seeks to swap black refugees and browns for cash with a country with an abysmal human rights record.

Terrible harm has already been done, people are terrified of receiving these letters, including child asylum seekers who have arrived in the UK alone. Well see the government in court.

Activists last week accused Home Secretary Priti Patel of racist and inhumane policies and called on her to back out of the Rwanda deal during a speech she gave at a dinner Conservative party.

At least 7,739 people have arrived in the UK after crossing the English Channel this year so far, according to an analysis by the Palestinian Authority news agency of government figures.

This is more than three times the amount that had arrived in the same period in 2021 (2,439).
