Welcome to Britain book launch with Colin Yeo and Satbir Singh

June 29, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Welcome to Britain: Fixing Our Broken Immigration System goes behind the scenes of the United Kingdom’s dysfunctional immigration system to look at the history of immigration since the Second World War, the accidental setting of the disastrous net migration target and the creation of the “hostile environment” system of citizen-on-citizen immigration checks. Colin Yeo explains how the Windrush scandal came about and how its web of laws and regulations has caused black and ethnic minority British citizens to be questioned about their right to live in the country just for going about their daily lives. Individual chapters then interrogate the mind-boggling cost and complexity of the system, the harsh rules on family immigration, asylum, work, students, EU citizens, deportation, detention and citizenship. Welcome to Britain ends with some proposals on how to reform the system to make it fair for migrants and citizens alike.

Satbir will be interviewing Colin by video link and asking him questions about what is in Welcome to Britain and what he wants people to take away from it. Attendees will be able to send in questions beforehand.
