UK Border Checks – Do you know your rights?

british flagmapDOWNLOAD YOUR FREE FACT SHEET BELOW

We have all noticed that immigration is being used as a scapegoat by the Coalition government and other groups to justify the state of today’s UK economy.  Not since the arrival of the “first generation” immigrants in the 1960s has there been such acceptance of a xenophobic atmosphere throughout society – and even among certain sectors of ethnic minority communities also!

UK Border Agency raids and spot checks are being carried out in public places by the Border Agency acting alone or with other agencies, typically the police.  Many people (legally in the UK or not) are left feeling vulnerable and disillusioned – this cannot go on. In conjunction with BARAC Birmingham I will be carrying out a series of immigration seminars around the West Midlands to empower people about their rights as an immigrant (legal or not) whilst in the UK.  Along with this I have created a fact sheet for free distribution – please download this from the link below and feel free to circulate among your family, friends, neighbours and networks.
