Brexit – take back control over your immigration status

As the UK hurtles ever closer to a possible cliff edge and the spectre of ‘no deal’ Brexit looms large in everyone’s minds, it is easy to feel we have no control over the direction we are heading in and the impact that may have on our lives. Those individuals who have obtained the right to live in the UK by virtue of their EU citizenship or their family relationship to an EU citizen can, however, take back control over their immigration status and rest a little easier in the weeks to come about at least one aspect of this quagmire.

Shutdowns and Brexit Omnishambles – how fear of immigration has brought us to a standstill

It is January 2019 and I am a dual British-American citizen witnessing the complete paralysis of both of my countries’ governments, one in partial shutdown and the other unable to break the deadlock Brexit has wrought.

Will Windrush help reset attitudes to immigration?

‘Positive, welcoming, liberal, forward-looking’. This is how Michael Gove summarised the Government’s approach to immigration only this week. Did he not get the Windrush memo? Immigration lawyers, human rights organisations and migrant communities have for years now tried to draw attention to the dangerous impact of the Government’s policy of establishing a ‘hostile environment’. However public discussion of immigration has instead focused on net migration figures and linking immigration to crime and a crisis in public services.  There has been publicity about successful appeals against deportation and doubts over the true age of asylum seeking children.
