Video: Illegal Migration Bill discussion

In case you missed it, you can watch me and Sonia discussing the Illegal Migration Bill over the course of an hour. We recorded this as a live session on Monday 13 March. We explain what is in it, what will it do, how is it intended to work, whether it is compatible with international law and what effects it might have in reality.

BUT at one point I say that the duty to remove and deny status applies to overstayers. I “over-spoke”. For the duty to apply, the person has to enter unlawfully in the first place after 7 March 2023.
