Welcome to the October 2018 edition of the Free Movement immigration update podcast. We posted 40 articles on the blog last month, but are realistically limited in a podcast to discussing the most important ten or so. A Supreme Court judgment obviously qualifies, so we start with that one on how the best interests of children factor into removal decisions before turning to another case involving children, this time in the Upper Tribunal. There’s also a set of changes to the Immigration Rules to mug up on.
Most of the rest of this month’s update is case law, of which the most significant case may be on Surinder Singh rights. There are a couple of asylum decisions to be aware of also, albeit on reasonably niche issues, as well as some new unlawful detention cases. We round off on two reported cases from the Upper Tribunal, one on trafficking and one on Article 8.
