Public Bill Committee: Immigration and Social Security Co-ordination (EU Withdrawal) Bill: Examination of Witnesses (14 Feb 2019)

.... We think that the Bill has far-reaching potential to make many more people liable to immigration detention.

Even if a tiny fraction of people with the right to claim residency here under the settled status...

Joanna Cherry: ..., the UK Government have not to date lived up to that commitment either in the context of Brexit or more widely, as we can see from the UN rapporteur’s report and the huge concern caused by the Windrush scandal and other aspects of the hostile environment policy.

Public Bill Committee: Immigration and Social Security Co-ordination (EU Withdrawal) Bill: Examination of Witnesses (12 Feb 2019)

Gracie Bradley: The impact of the hostile environment has really been laid bare by the Windrush scandal, and I would like to set Liberty’s comments in that context. We have seen people who had a right to be here made destitute, losing their livelihoods, and potentially being unable to come back into the country that they have called their home for decades. Some people have died as a...

...pre-settled status. The Government said that the intention is for pre-settled status to lead to indefinite leave to remain, but it is not a legally watertight guarantee, and we know from the Windrush scandal that any time there is a question mark over immigration status, it can, in the hands of the wrong employer, be used as a means to threaten or dismiss workers. That is already a...

Public Bill Committee: Immigration and Social Security Co-ordination (EU Withdrawal) Bill: Examination of Witnesses (12 Feb 2019)

...: I would not want to be specific about what might happen in future. I am conscious that the Bill will potentially define a framework for decades regarding EU citizens. We just have to look at the Windrush story. The way in which Commonwealth citizens of that generation still rely on the Immigration Act 1971 to protect them is not fully understood. Section 34 conferred upon them automatic...

Dawn Butler: This week I had a phone call with regard to a young man who tried to commit suicide and a mother who felt that she did not want to burden her children any more, all because of the Windrush scandal.
