CHANNEL migrants will find out this week if they’re to be flown out to Rwanda, the Home Secretary said.
The Home Office will send letters to failed asylum seekers telling them they have been selected.

“I will not be deterred from acting to deliver on the changes the British people voted for to take back control of our money, laws and borders.”
The relocated individuals are expected to be single men who crossed the Channel in small boats.
But it could be months before they are put on a plane to Africa because of the potential legal challenges.
