The UK government has put out a £78 million ($94.75 million) contract to transport migrants to partner countries, including Rwanda, as part of its plan to detain and deport individuals who arrive in small boats across the Channel.
Some charities have criticized a new law proposed by Britain last week which would bar asylum seekers from arriving in small boats. They argue that the law could be impractical and unjustly punish genuine refugees.
The objective of the proposal is to detain and deport individuals arriving via small boats, either to their country of origin or to designated safe third countries.
As part of a £120 million agreement last year, Britain reached a deal to transport tens of thousands of migrants to Rwanda, which is located more than 4,000 miles (6,400 km) away. However, no flights have taken off yet as opponents have launched legal challenges against the policy.
