“Today I met a woman who trafficked to the UK and forced into prostitution for 2 years. She was imprisoned for using a false passport. UK authorities didn’t accept she was trafficked. She was to be deported. THANKS TO LEGAL AID, I successfully challenged the decision in court. She was accepted as a victim of trafficking and now has refugee status.
THIS CASE WOULD BE BARRED BY THE “RESIDENCE TEST”.
EXCEPTIONS ARE NOT ENOUGH.”
