Welcome to the June 2018 edition of the Free Movement immigration update podcast. I start this month with a whistle-stop tour of some of the latest changes to the Immigration Rules before highlighting a couple of procedural changes, including the end of special deadlines for the Home Office in judicial review cases. Then to Brexit, as the government published something approaching a plan on citizens’ rights, and then to some judgments around children and families. I then note some case law on trafficking, deportation and asylum before ending on a note of alarm on immigration bail accommodation. This month we published a lot of new or updated explainers on many of these topics, which I won’t attempt to summarise in the podcast but will flag up as we go through.
