Journalist Mike Graham defended his position on illegal immigration, saying he was not racist.

The British government’s new policy in Rwanda in an attempt to tackle illegal immigration has caused a major division among the British public.

Mr Graham said most people who enter the UK without the correct documents get the asylum they seek.

He also explained why he believes the entire immigration system is broken and in need of major reform.

Mr Graham told Talk TV: “People call me a racist because I’m against illegal immigration, it has nothing to do with race, it has everything to do with the law.

“People say, oh yeah, but most of them get the asylum they’re asking for, yeah, but that’s because the legal businesses in this country spend so much time making sure they get them. keep here.

“They advise them, there are charities like migrant organizations that will tell them precisely how to continue to stay here.

“Becoming a Christian, they say, is what the guy who blew himself up in Liverpool did, becoming someone who says he was rehabilitated from Islamic jihadism.

Mr Graham added: “That’s exactly what happened to the guy who blew up Manchester Arena, tell them you’re gay and can’t be sent home. That’s a good thing, it will keep you here.

“And the reason they get asylum is really because they stay here long enough to qualify for residency, because if you can stay in the country long enough, you can get the legal right to stay.

“The whole system is broken, the whole system needs to be reformed, there should be a flight taking off tomorrow, with at least 100 illegal migrants on board.

“The flight may not take off at all, but I won’t give up on this flight until the flights take off and Boris Johnson has to grow a spine of some sort.”

Unlike Mr Graham, some British figures think the new plan is racist.

Journalist Allistair Campbell took to Twitter to criticize Foreign Secretary Liz Truss.

Mr Campbell tweeted: “NO @trussliz #Rwanda the theft policy is NOT *completely moral* It’s racist and I’m totally ashamed to be British and have this done in my name #RwandaDeportation #RwandaNotInMyName.”

Journalist Otto English also tweeted: “Deporting desperate human beings to Rwanda to appease racists is nothing less than evil. The entire nation should be absolutely appalled that this horrible policy is being carried out in our name. It defiles us all by association.

There has been a lot of pushback from some Britons who think the new plan is immoral.

Public, political and religious figures have publicly condemned the plan.

The Reverend Justin Welby – the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Reverend Stephen Cottrell – the Archbishop of York and Primate of England – as well as 23 bishops who sit in the House of Lords wrote in a letter to The Times that the policy was “shameful”.

They said: “Whether or not the first deportation flight leaves Britain today for Rwanda, this policy should put us to shame as a nation.

“The shame is ours because our Christian heritage should inspire us to treat asylum seekers with compassion, fairness and justice, as we have done for centuries.”
