Braverman is no stranger to controversies – Times of India – Lifotravel

A hard-right, divisive politician, Suella Braverman, 43, has now been fired from the home secretary’s position twice, once on Monday by PM Rishi Sunak, and once by his predecessor, Liz Truss.Her hard-line stance on law enforcement, immigration and national security issues has often stoked divisive cultural debates.
A damaging email breach
Braverman was first appointed home secretary in September 2022 by Truss but was fired less than two months later for a security breach.Using her personal email address, she had sent a government document to another lawmaker who was not authorised to see it. That decision was criticized not only by the opposition but by lawmakers on Parliament’s public administration and constitutional affairs committee, which later issued a report detailing how the “leaking of restricted material is worthy of significant sanction.”
A tenure of divisive rhetoric
Last year, Justin Welby, the archbishop of Canterbury, joined a number of other religious leaders who denounced her description of the asylum seekers arriving on Britain’s southern coast as an “invasion.”
Braverman has also faced criticism for inaccurate narratives that play into right-wing tropes, including writing in the Daily Mail that gangs that prey on young women were “almost all British-Pakistani” men.
Earlier this month, it emerged that Braverman wanted to create a new law to deter charities from providing tents for homeless people. In a later post on X, she described homelessness as a “lifestyle choice.”
An immigration policy challenged in the courts
Braverman is perhaps most famous for her determination to stop the small boats that cross the English Channel filled with migrants seeking asylum. Last year, the government introduced a plan that would send people arriving in Britain by “illegal, dangerous or unnecessary methods” to Rwanda to have their asylum claims processed there. While the plan was first announced by Braverman’s predecessor, Priti Patel, Braverman has been an ardent supporter. During the Conservative Party’s annual conference in 2022, she said that it was her “dream” to see a flight depart for Rwanda; after the Court of Appeal decided earlier this summer that such deportations could violate human rights, she vowed to do “whatever it takes” to see the policy put in place. On Wednesday Britain’s SC is expected to make a final ruling on the legality of the plan.
