CWN Editor's Note: Bishop Paul McAleenan, lead bishop for migrants and refugees for the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales, welcomed a UK Supreme Court decision blocking the planned deportation of asylum-seekers to Rwanda.
“I am greatly relieved that the proposal to send those seeking asylum to Rwanda has been ruled unlawful,” the prelate said. “This was a policy that ignored the innate human dignity of those seeking sanctuary.”The above note supplements, highlights, or corrects details in the original source (link above).
