The current British Foreign Secretary and Conservative leadership candidate, Liz Truss, plans to deport asylum seekers to Spain in United kingdom If she becomes prime minister, The Times revealed on Saturday.
The candidate to replace Boris Johnson is considering the possibility of reproducing the deportation model currently in place with Rwanda in other countries and expanding it to countries such as Turkey and Spain to deal with the migration crisis in the English Channel.

According to the British newspaper, Truss told Conservative MP Christopher Schop that he intended to “seek similar deals with other countries, citing Turkey and Spain”.
However, his campaign team has for the time being ruled out the option of signing a deal with Spain, leaving Turkey as a “realistic possibility”.
Border control is one of the highlights of the Conservative campaign among the candidates to replace Prime Minister Boris Johnson after his resignation on July 7, who will remain temporarily at No. 10 Downing Street until he is declared the new leader.
In the English Channel, the steady stream of migrants continues, with more than 130 people arriving on Friday, bringing the annual figure to more than 14,300 so far in 2022.
