On Tuesday, a spokesperson for Prime Minister Boris Johnson said that the country’s plan to send asylum seekers to Rwanda might take longer due to the government facing legal challenges regarding a policy for dealing with migrants crossing the Channel.

The spokesperson added it might be months before the first flights taking migrants from Britain to Rwanda leave.

“We have received pre-action correspondence,” the spokesperson told reporters. “Those legal challenges obviously may be a factor that can mean it takes longer to implement the policy.”
