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.
The 'hostile environment' builds a culture of suspicion and distrust.
It is time to challenge the hostile environment and to promote a more hospitable environment. The Joint Public Issues Team invite churches, church groups and individuals actively to challenge the hostile environment.
