Immigration enforcement in the workplace and education

Jump to

MRN coordinates a pro bono network of lawyers and activists collaborating on advice, strategies and legal support.


What we are doing

The network allows lawyers to share ideas and opinions, keep-up-to-date on new developments in the law and practice, and work to bring strategic litigation on aspects of the hostile environment for migrants such as immigration raids, the intersection between employment and immigration law, and international students and academics undergoing intense monitoring by their educational establishments.The pro bono network of lawyers and grassroots activists work focuses on:

  • challenging immigration raids on businesses, especially as they disproportionately affect BAME-led businesses
  • supporting migrant workers impacted and discriminated by ‘right to work’ checks and immigration raids
  • supporting international students and staff facing the restrictive Immigration compliance rules enforced in education settings

The network allows lawyers to share ideas and opinions, keep-up-to-date on new developments in the law and practice, and work to bring strategic litigation on aspects of the hostile environment for migrants such as immigration raids, the intersection between employment and immigration law, and international students and academics undergoing intense monitoring by their educational establishments.

The key partners are: Haringey and Newham Anti-Raids Groups, ITN Solicitors, Bindmans, Migrants at Work and Unis Resist Border Controls
