The Dubs amendment, submitted by Lord Alf Dubs (a Labour peer who fled the Nazis as a child on the Kindertransport scheme), would allow unaccompanied asylum-seeking children to come and live in the UK.
Boris Johnson stripped the amendment from the EU Withdrawal Bill in December in a callous attempt to use the rights of unaccompanied child refugees as bargaining chips in the Government’s negotiations with the European Union.
However, today the Lords voted to restore the Dubs amendment, and the issue will return to the Commons tomorrow.
The European Movement is proud to join Safe Passage UK in calling on MPs to restore the Dubs amendment and protect child refugees post-Brexit.
Write to your MP and tell them that the rights of child refugees should not be on the negotiating table.
