    Voluntary Repatriation Bill 2016

    A
    BILL
    TO


    Provide the Option of Voluntary Repatriation for First and Second Generation Immigrants


    BE IT ENACTED by The Queen's most Excellent Majesty, by and with the advice and consent of the Commons in this present Parliament assembled, in accordance with the provisions of the Parliament Acts 1911 and 1949, and by the authority of the same, as follows:-

    1) Definitions
    (a) A first generation immigrant constitutes a foreign born citizen who has immigrated to United Kingdom.
    (b) A second generation immigrant constitutes an individual of the first generation of a family to be born in the United Kingdom, who holds, or is eligible for, citizenship of the nation(s) of birth of the first generation of their family to reside in the United Kingdom.
    (c) Voluntary repatriation is the process by which said immigrants are returned to the nation of origin of citizenship (in certain cases pertaining to second generation immigrants, the nation of origin of family).
    (d) A person’s home nation is defined as the nation of the individual’s own birth or the nation of birth of one or more of their parents.

    2) Procedures and guidelines
    (1) The Home Office will oversee the formation of the Ministry of Repatriation, which will be responsible for carrying out voluntary repatriations for first and second generation immigrants.
    (2) The Minister of Repatriation will be appointed as a junior to the Home Secretary, and have powers over the direction and administration of the repatriation efforts.

    3) Process of voluntary repatriation
    (1) First and second generation immigrants who are willing to return to their home nations may commence such proceedings by informing the aforementioned Ministry of Repatriation of their intentions to do so, by filling in a form to be known as the “Repatriation Application Form”.
    (2) The Ministry of Repatriation will file such requests.
    (3) All immigrants who undergo the process of Voluntary Repatriation will have their citizenship of the United Kingdom rescinded with immediate effect.
    (4) Immigrants who go through the process of Voluntary Repatriation cannot reapply for citizenship or any form of permanent stay in the United Kingdom for 20 years from the day their citizenship was rescinded.
    (5) The Minister of Repatriation may make a special exception for a citizen whose citizenship would be deemed illegal under Section 3 subsection 4.

    4) Short title, commencement and extent
    (1) This Act may be cited as the Voluntary Repatriation Act 2016.
    (2) This Act comes into effect 120 days after Royal Assent.
    (3) This Act extends to the entirety of the United Kingdom.


    Notes
    There are immigrants in the United Kingdom who want leave the UK and return to their home country permanently, but cannot afford to do so, so this Act helps them by allowing them to live in the country that they want to live in.

    This strikes me as somewhat overkill, certainly doesn't need its own ministry, it would be a tiny part of in reality FCO rather than home.

    There is this thing called the "notes" section, I guess you didn't read the bill.

    Get rid of sections 3(3) to 3(5) and I see this as reasonable.

    Edit: also, assuming your notes are accurate and the reason is that they cannot afford to do so and you want to help them, you need to include a provision for providing funding in the text of the Bill itself.

    Do you have any reason to believe the cosy would exceed the £100m threshold?

    Definitely not, whilst I recognise the harm of having a consistent influx of people in conjunction with a welfare state this Bill is unnecessary.

    I would consider supporting this if there was a period people could have and reverse their decision.

    And why 20 years? I would prefer just to make it so they have to apply in the same way as everyone else.
