Immigration update podcast, episode 67

Welcome to episode 67 of the Free Movement immigration update podcast. As you may have noticed, we’ve been on a rather extended holiday, so we’re going to use this and the next episode to catch you up on what’s gone on in immigration law over the summer.

There are a fair few cases to discuss, especially on detention, deportation and asylum. We then have good news to mention on EU law document applications, and some less good news on the procedural front.
