Home Office accused of being “racist and homophobic” in Aderonke Apata asylum case.
Weeks before the General Election cross party parliamentarians agree immigration detention is expensive, ineffective and unjust.
The All Party Parliamentary Group on Refugees and the All Party Parliamentary Group on Migration, have jointly published a report into the use of immigration detention in the United Kingdom.
Today’s final set of migration statistics released by the Office of National Statistics prior to the General Election prove once again that Cameron is unable to deliver on his promise to reduce net migration figures. This proves that his Government’s current immigration system is unworkable.
Romanians are conducting a 'silent protest' in front of Channel 4 at 3 pm tomorrow, in response to the recently-aired, denigrating documentary, 'The Romanians are coming'.

"The channel has purposely taken out positive parts from the documentary and has omitted showing the reality. They wanted to portray Romanians negatively and did everything in their power to ignore established professionals that are contributing their skills and money to the UK economy."

Maria Faraheen, JCWI Campaigns Intern, writes on why JCWI is supporting this campaign.
The demonstration was originally called by the South London People’s Assembly, Defend Council Housing and Unite Housing Workers. It has however expanded to include a second feeder march from East London, which includes Focus E15 and New Era campaigns. Protests will converge at City Hall, bringing their protests to Boris Johnson.
JCWI has been successful in two judicial review cases in the Upper Tribunal. We hope that this victory will benefit many families who are unfairly kept in limbo in Britain.
