UK: The government wants to put GPS trackers on migrants

A Tory government could implement dystopian surveillance measures worthy of the extreme totalitarianism of science fiction. This is no longer dystopian science fiction, but a real possibility promoted by the conservative party.

To justify her position, Braverman, the Secretary of the Interior, cited the Illegal Immigration Act. Under this law, any immigrant who enters the UK unofficially will be expelled from the UK. He will also be banned from entering again in the future and will not be able to apply for British citizenship.

Suella Braverman is the daughter of African immigrants of Indian descent and studied law at Queens College.

Being dissatisfied with this situation, the government is appealing this decision before the Supreme Court.
