Darren supports LGBT+ asylum seekers

Darren Jones, MP for Bristol North West, has signed a cross-party letter supporting calls for the Home Office to urgently review how it assesses LGBT+ asylum seekers claims where they may be forced to return to countries with anti-LGBT+ laws.

Darren said:

” I’ve signed a joint letter with regional Labour MPs and the Co-chairs of the LGBT+ Labour South West, calling on the Home Secretary to urgently review how it handles cases involving LGBT+ people from countries that have anti-LGBT laws.

No one, including Kenneth Macharia from Bristol who plays for the Bristol Bisons RFC, should be at risk of being deported back to a country where they face persecution and even death for being who they are”.
