THE Indian Workers’ Association (IWA) has written to Prime Minister Boris Johnson to grant legal rights to undocumented migrants to prevent the spreading of Covid-19.
The IWA has joined more than 100,000 people in Britain who have signed a petition demanding the government regularise people who have arrived following legal routes but later became irregular due to complicated application processes.
Over 80 per cent of undocumented migrants become irregular due to the immigration system, according to the Joint Council for the Welfare of Immigrants.
The call comes amid health concerns during the Covid-19 pandemic, with the Tories’ hostile environment policies discouraging migrants from getting vaccinated.
In the letter, IWA general secretary Joginder Bains wrote: “Granting legal rights will not only protect migrants from exploitation, abuse and slave labour, it will also reduce inequalities and vulnerability.
“Regularisation of undocumented workers makes economic and political sense. In the current health crisis, it will also be a crucial step towards protecting the British public from further spread of Covid-19.”
