Dear [MP’s name]

I am deeply concerned by the Home Secretary and Prime Minister’s plan to further dismantle the right to asylum in the UK with their ‘Illegal Migration Bill’.


According to the Archbishop of Canterbury, if this bill becomes law, Britain’s proud tradition of welcoming those fleeing persecution will be destroyed. This law will also mean that any refugee who cannot access one of the few safe routes will be denied the chance to reunite with their family and live safely in the UK. Instead, they would be detained by the Home Secretary before being banished forever with no chance to reach their family in the UK or establish a new life here.


Include your full name and address. It’s best if you can adapt the letter slightly, as MPs tend to ignore lots of template letters that are all exactly the same.
