Have you experienced immigration detention? Right to Remain can help with submissions to parliamentary inquiry


This may be of interest to those who have experienced immigration detention - including partners and family members of British citizens. People such as Dee ( http://britcits.blogspot.co.uk/2013/11/an-account-of-detention-of-spouse-of.html ) or Melissa ( http://britcits.blogspot.co.uk/2014/07/another-detention-original-piece-on.html ).

'The British Parliament has launched its first-ever inquiry on detention.  The inquiry, jointly led by the All Party Parliamentary Group on Refugees and Migration, will investigate the impact and implications of the use of immigration detention.

'This is a chance to speak out on the injustice of the detention system and work together towards the creation of possible alternatives!   This inquiry in itself will not mean the end of detention, but it’s a unique opportunity to tell the people in power how detention has affected you and demand action on detention in the UK.   You may have been detained in the past, you may currently be detained, or you may know someone who has been detained and this has had an effect on you.'
