The ‘Aspen Card’ is a debit payment card given to UK asylum seekers by the Home Office. It provides basic subsistence, but the Home Office can also use Aspen Cards to track exactly what asylum seekers are buying, and where and when they’re making their purchases. But it doesn’t just stop at surveillance. The Home Office can cut off asylum seekers’ access to money if their spending patterns don’t adhere to invisible rules.
