Reacting to the Court of Appeal judgement, Migration Watch UK Chairman Alp Mehmet said:
The Court of Appeal has, with two to one majority, with which the Lord Chief Justice disagreed, allowed the appeal. Many people will see it as a decision based on ifs and maybes. The Supreme Court should, without delay, have the final word. Meanwhile, the traffickers will be rubbing their hands in glee.
Ultimately, if the stumbling block of ECHR and 1951 Convention remains then we should leave both.
As part of Migration Watch UK’s Cut Immigration Campaign, we are calling on the government to review Britain’s membership of the European Convention of Human Rights.
