Robert Jenrick, the british Immigration minister, has resigned from prime minister Rishi Sunak's cabinet because to "strong disagreements" with the government's rwanda policy of deporting illegal migrants. Jenrick, who was formerly considered a Sunak supporter, said wednesday that the emergency legislation tabled in a parliamentary speech by his boss, home Secretary james Cleverly, did not go far enough to halt the "merry-go-round of legal challenges." Sunak replied to his resignation by stating he was "disappointed," but his decision to leave was "based on a fundamental misunderstanding of the situation."

"It is with great sadness that I have written to the prime minister to tender my resignation as minister for Immigration," Jenrick wrote in a post on X after questioning in the house of Commons, where he was not present.

"I cannot continue in my position when I have such strong disagreements with the direction of the government's policy on immigration," he was quoted as saying.

Small boat crossings over the english Channel, according to Jenrick, were causing "untold damage" to the country, and the government needed to prioritize "national interests over highly contested interpretations of international law."

"I have therefore consistently advocated for a clear piece of legislation that severely limits the opportunities for domestic and foreign courts to block or undermine the effectiveness of the policy," he stated in his resignation letter to Sunak on Wednesday.
