This editorial highlights some of the public health hazards implicit within the government’s treatment of migrants and locates these within a wider frame of mental health. In the midst of a pandemic threatening countless lives and a belated lockdown inducing widespread mental stress, the Government continues to pursue a Hostile Environment policy. This involves various legislative and administrative measures aimed at making it as difficult as possible for people without full rights to remain in the UK to actually stay in the country.
