Leaked documents about how the British government is considering treating asylum seekers have caused an outcry. The leaks were published by different news sources, detailing how Downing Street and the Home Office plan to crack down on migration. Proposals range from sending migrants to offshore asylum centres to having asylum seekers processed on disused floating ferries. Critics and the opposition consider the plans to be "inhumane". Meanwhile in France, #FreeUyghurs is trending in light of Chinese National Day.
