Rebecca Trendells’ Success Stories

Highly Skilled Migrants fall victim to the “hostile environment” policy

Following on from the “Windrush” scandal that has dominated the immigration news is the last few months, the Guardian newspaper has in the last few weeks been highlighting the case of highly skilled migrants seeking indefinite leave to remain in the UK being threatened with removal by the Home Office due to their broad hand use of rule 322(5) of the Immigration Rules to refuse applications on the basis of “bad character”. The Guardian reported that around 1,000 skilled migrants are “wrongly facing deportation”.

Will EU nationals be the latest Victims of the “Hostile Environment” Policy

During Theresa May's time as Secretary of State for the Home Department, measures were taken to create a "hostile environment" policy for those who do not have the right to reside in the United Kingdom. The basic principle behind this policy is to force people to prove their right to reside within the United Kingdom. This included renting a home, accessing healthcare or applying for a driving licence. This essentially meant public and private sector workers became enforcers of immigration control.

Took a case that know other law firm will touch and got the home office to listen. Not only did they get them to listen we got result based on compassionate grounds and today I consider Lupin Solicitors as an extended family because they treated me like one when I was in need.
