Update on EEA Admin Removals

Home Office guidance on administrative removals of EEA nationals was updated on 1 February. The Home Office have changed their rhetoric around rough sleeping (‘abuse’ is now ‘misuse’) and have clarified ‘proportionality’. See the full document here: https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/590663/GI-EEA-admin-removal-v3.pdf

In the past 2 weeks, there have been a number of policy changes where EEA/EU nationals are concerned (i.e. crackdowns by the government). This is summarised well with links to official documents here: https://www.freemovement.org.uk/new-policies-and-forms-for-eu-nationals-show-hardening-home-office-position/
