The Dubs Amendment

By | Uncategorised | No Comments

All of us at Street Talk are shocked and disappointed that MPs voted 348 to 252 against the Dubs Amendment.

The Amendment to the Withdrawal Agreement Bill offered safe passage to the UK to those unaccompanied refugee children, in camps in Europe, who have family members in the UK. Without family to protect them, the children are extremely vulnerable, to traffickers and to sexual exploitation. Street Talk works with the victims of trafficking and women in exploitative prostitution, all of whom became vulnerable as children.

We know that there are children as young as seven alone in camps. By dropping our guarantee of their right to be reunited with their families, we are preparing to put those children in harm’s way. Street Talk will continue to support Lord Dubs in his courageous fight to take care of these most vulnerable children.

An online petition calling on the home office to protect the reunification scheme has already been signed by over 200,000.
