"Let’s not forget that this is intersectional, Black and minoritised women are being hit even harder. I work with refugee women, women who are living in extreme poverty. These women are really bearing the brunt of a shrinking economy." - @Natasha_Walter on @BBCRadio4 this morning

I came to UK as unaccompanied child refugee from Afghanistan.

It was by traffickers who said route was "safe & legal".I could have died without trace. Memories still haunt me.

UK closing borders today to child refugees puts lives at risk. Can we show compassion & stop this? RT

Now everyone's (rightly) asking why school meal vouchers aren't provided in cash, let's remember section 4 support for refused asylum seekers has been in vouchers (or payment cards) since 1999. Each indignity now visited on low-income families was first trialled on asylum seekers
