If we wish to write to our MPs about the new Immigration Act 2o16, we should raise the issues of
– detention: no maximum time limit has been introduced, so people are still detained indefinitely. They will now be brought before a judicial authority within 4 mths which is too long, but better than nothing;
– ensuring that families and children are not left destitute, and that they are kept together;
– expansion of family reunion to include for example children aged +18.
