The 'hostile environment' is a web of government policies designed to make life so difficult for people who cannot prove they have the right to live in the UK that they will choose to leave.
The 'hostile environment' is inhumane because it deliberately inflicts destitution.
The 'hostile environment' is discriminatory, and encourages xenophobia and racial profiling.
