Immigration roundup: a look back at 2022 and ahead to 2023

Colin and Sonia take a look back at 2022 and ahead to 2023 as well as covering the immigration updates from December 2022. Looking back, they talk about small boat crossings, the Ukraine and Hong Kong schemes, the impact (or lack of) the Nationality and Borders Act 2022, the Rwanda judgment, the asylum backlog and the net migration figures. Looking to the future they cover Rishi Sunak’s asylum plan, whether the Home Office can cope, the prospect of yet more legislation and the ideas for immigration restrictions on families, students and workers floated via The Times over the Christmas break.

Finally, they cover several litigation developments for lawyers from December 2022 and end by discussing to big cases for EU citizens with pre settled status. Phew. The episode weighs in at nearly an hour.
