Failure to comply with expulsion order not an obstacle to regularisation

Having been convicted for  failing to obey an expulsion order is not an obstacle to being regularized, the Council of State has ruled.

In 2009 the Government introduced a law to regularize illegal domestic workers. It was very clear in the law that a past expulsion order was not supposed to be an obstacle to the workers’ regularization.

The law, however, didn’t clearly state that whoever had been arrested and convicted for failing to comply with an order to leave the national territory, would not be regularised, as foreseen by Immigration Law.

Net migration rises to 242,000

Green said: "These statistics show that immigration was out of control thanks to the old system"

Some 242,000 more people came to live in the UK last year, representing a 45 per cent increase in just one year, figures released from the Office for National Statistics (ONS), show.

This is the highest level since the year ending June 2005, where it reached 260,000.

The increase in net migration is driven by a fall in emigration, which was 344,000 in the year to September 2010, a decrease of 20 per cent from its peak of 427,000 in the year ending December 2008.

Stop cuts to child asylum support, UNISON tells UKBA

Unaccompanied child asylum seekers are vulnerable, help them rebuild their lives

UNISON Chief Dave Prentis has written to the Acting Chief Executive of the UK Border Agency (UKBA), warning over the dangers of cutting funds paid to councils for caring and supporting unaccompanied child asylum seekers.

Cuts of up to 15% to some local authorities are set to create a two tier system, with child asylum seekers receiving significantly worse care.

Under the Children’s Act, and equality duties, local authorities have a legal duty to all young children, regardless of where they are from, and these cuts mean many councils are in danger of flouting these duties.
