The three immigration experts consider which cases will be the most important in 2017, which legislative and regulatory developments will be the most significant and how Brexit will affect the jurisdiction. Greg argues that the key challenge remains dealing with the “unrelenting flow of badly thought through legislation and policy.” This issue along with the refugee crisis, the unknown impact of Brexit, and the likely continuation of the rolling back of protections for migrants means that much remains uncertain in the field of immigration law over the next few months.
