UK PM Sunak: I am ‘completely committed’ to Rwanda migrant scheme

LONDON (Reuters) – British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak said on Monday he was completely committed to his government’s scheme to send asylum seekers to Rwanda after the UK’s top judges last week ruled it was unlawful.

“I’m completely committed to doing what is necessary to get those flights off and that scheme up and running,” he said in response to a question following a speech in London.
