Bartley: Waiting times scandal further proof that UK immigration system broken

28 March 2018

 

Green Party Co-Leader Jonathan Bartley expressed his outrage that waiting times for UK immigration appeals rising by 45% over the past year [1].

 

The fact that half if appeals lodged are upheld shows that “the system is broken”.

 

Bartley said:  “People come to Britain because they want a better life and often a better future for their family. To make them wait twelve months to have their appeal processed, and face all the stress and anxiety that comes with that, is unacceptable. The system is broken, it needs a total overhaul and an end to the hostile environment that migrants face”.
