Welcome to the July 2017 edition of the Free Movement immigration update podcast. This month I begin by running through a whole load of judgments and determinations, including from the Supreme Court on sham marriages, some cases on procedure and costs and some shocking cases on unlawful detention. I then turn to a series of short policy updates and with a quick mention for a detailed post on the rules on deportation for non-EU nationals – which are the rules which will apply to all foreign nationals after Brexit, of course.

The material is all drawn from the July 2017 blog posts on Free Movement.
