UK Home Office is losing 75% of court appeals against immigration rulings as revealed by the figures from Guardian. This is with respect to seekers of asylum in the UK and other immigrants.
The low success rates of HOs appeals against immigration rulings have raised several concerns. It has been said that the HO is making people undergo expensive and elaborate court proceedings. This is in spite of its scant chances of winning, as quoted by the Guardian.
Y-Axis Immigration Expert Vasantha Jaganathan said that the statistics will be associated with the hostile ambiance policy of the UK. It also demonstrates that the government was stopping people from leading their lives, she added.
Individuals who seek refuge in the UK are first given a decision by the HO. If their petition is rejected, they can appeal against the ruling in a UK Court of Immigration. During the period 2017 April to 2018 March, the number of cases determined in court was 11, 974. 4, 332 of the decisions of the HO were reversed by the court.
Out of the decisions offering leave to remain, 1,235 were referred by the HO for further appeal to the Upper Tribunal. Around 73% or 900 were discarded by an independent Jude. This has been revealed by the response to a Freedom of Information.
People can wait for a year for the hearing of an initial appeal. The HO appeals against the ruling if the Judge rules that they can remain in the UK. The second hearing may take another year or more.
