Calls to release those in immigration detention during Corona Virus

The right to health, life and liberty are all at risk as long as people are held in immigration detention during the corona virus outbreak.

The Consortium signed a letter, coordinated by Joint Council for the Welfare of Immigrants (JCWI), to call on the UK Government to immediately release all held in these detention centres, as well as calling for ‘no resource to public funds’ conditions to be suspended and to ensure that noone is penalised for missing appointments at this time.
