The Internal guidance manual for the caseworkers who deal with ILR application, explains that section 322-5 should only be used if it involves “criminality, a threat to national security, war crimes or travel bans”.
The individual who are effects and their supports has started a campaign and writing a letter to Home Office Secretary: “Stop abusing the national security clause to deport highly skilled migrants “and requesting people sign. This campaign and several other protests have raised a great concern in and out side the United Kingdom.
