It is just not fair to treat people who are already in danger with their lives so badly. They must be allowed to live in UK freely.

Yarl's Wood is a disgusting institution that encourages sexual assault and leaves disease epidemics to run riot. The institutionalised racism goes unchallenged.

Why do we spend £40000 per detainee a year to strip a person fleeing TORTURE, ABUSE and RAPE of their human rights, subject them to further ABUSE and SEXUAL ABUSE, deny them from contact with their CHILDREN and turn a blind eye to it?? For then many to be released back into the community? Absolute scum of the earth, all the guards, serco and every single politician that stays silent on this shame on you advocating torture and murder

Because it is obviously the right thing to do. This shouldn't even be a problem in the first place!

Yarls Wood and all other 'immigration removal centres' in the UK need to be shut down. They are inhumane, immoral and perpetuating trauma for so many women. They are shrouded in secrecy because of the human rights abuses going on in there. They must be shut down. Shame on the government for keeping them open.

The UK is supposed to be a civilised country. We can and should do better than this.
