Securing Australia Student Visa for 2019Over the years, Australia has grown into one of the most attractive destinations for international students, and the reasons are clear for all to see.

Every student that seeks to study in the country will not regret deciding to do so. Having said this, it is important to put certain things in place to ensure your abroad study adventure. They are as follow:

Certification of Enrolment

No Conspiracy in Hong Kong’s Visa Denials – Director of Immigration

in Hong Kong Immigration by

No Conspiracy in Hong Kong's Visa Denials - Director of ImmigrationNo visitor was denied Hong Kong’s visa as a result of conspiracy according to the country’s immigration chief.

Erick Tsang, Hong Kong’s director of immigration, revealed on Sunday that each year, tens of thousands are denied entry into Hong Kong, all of which he said are with explanations. He stated further that everything done by his department is in line with the laws of the country.

Mr. Tsang’s comments are subsequent to several denial cases that are considered politically sensitive. One of such is the expulsion of Victor Mallet, a Financial Times journalist. The denial of his visa renewal was a sequel to him chairing a talk by Andy Chan, a pro-independence activist.

The Law is Supreme

Defending his department’s denial decisions, Tsang said every decision they make is informed by existing laws, policies and procedures. We can’t violate the law or do just anything we feel like, he said.

He explained that it’s either the people denied do not meet the immigration requirements of the country or are considered detrimental or dangerous to the country. Parallel traders and pregnant women from mainland China without hospital appointments are examples of such cases according to the director. It has nothing to do with conspiracy or preferential treatment, he concluded.

These decisions are made by frontline staff at control points definitely as guided by the law, says Mr. Tsang when asked if he’s responsible for rejections final choices. It’s not possible for me to make the calls concerning every decision across the 16 contact points in Hong Kong, he affirmed.

He also clarified that while it is possible for an individual to hold more than one Hong Kong passport, only one of such passports will be valid at any given time.

USA: About Half of Illegal Immigration Will be Stopped by Border Wall

USA: About Half of Illegal Immigration Will be Stopped by Border WallAmidst enormous controversy, including a partial government shutdown, surrounding the building of a US-Mexico border wall, a new report released by CBS unequivocally says half of the total illegal immigration into the United States can be stopped by building a border wall according to data from the Center for Migration Studies.

According to the report, the southern border made it possible for one-third of the total recent undocumented immigrants in the US to be in the country while the other two-thirds have overstayed various kinds of visas.

Bringing Data to Focus

The latest data from the Center for Migration Studies reveal that a little below half (42%) of the undocumented immigrants residing in the United States entered the country legally on work visas but failed to leave the country when such visas expire.

In 2016, undocumented population in the US hit a 12-year low according to Pew Research Center. The center equally revealed that only about 500,000 Mexicans entered through the southern border illegally between 2011 and 2016 representing a huge fall from the above two million that entered in 2007 according to CBS.

Roughly 700,000 foreigners are residing in the United States on an expired visa as at September 2017 according to CBS report. The report acknowledged that the current administration has measures in place to cub visa overstays. A measure is U.S. Immigration, and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) sending of mail to visa holders to flag them about their visas were about to expire.

This will make people reconsider overstaying their visas according to the director at the Center for Immigration Studies.

Thousands of Immigration Cases Indefinitely Delayed Due To Shut down

in USA Immigration by

Thousands of Immigration Cases Indefinitely Delayed Due To Shut downThe federal government has delayed thousands of immigration cases due to the ongoing partial shutdown by the Trump administration.

It is reported by the ABC News that most courts handling immigration cases have closed down due to the shutdown, thereby causing delay. As a result, a lot of asylum application and immigration claims cases are still untouched as the shutdown is moving to its third week.

The Immigration judged have reported that these delays have made the cases worse and also made the President’s goal, in terms of the border security, not achievable.

The People Laments

The Vice President of the National Association of Immigration Judges, Amiens Khan complained about how frustrating the situation was. He spoke on the irony of the whole situation, stating that the government was shut down to ensure border security and yet, it was affecting the Immigration system.

In December, there was a report that the Department of Justice’s Executive Office of Immigration Review (EOIR), without prior notice, had informed a lot of immigration attorneys of the postponement of their cases.

There are complaints from attorneys that EOIR didn’t notify them and this had rendered a lot of the attorneys and their clients (migrants) clueless about what the future holds for their cases.

An attorney with the African Hispanic Immigration Organization (AHIO), Kidhen Banet, had tweeted, at that time, how he was clueless about the cases until he had tweeted other attorneys and also called the court.

US: New Asylum Policy will Help to Block Illegal Immigration

in USA Immigration by

US: New Asylum Policy will Help to Block Illegal ImmigrationKristen Nielsen, the Homeland Security secretary, has announced a significant change in the policy that will help stop illegal immigration.

The Homeland Security department is making amends in the Immigration system in the asylum system. The major problem is the fact that illegal migrants, especially the ones from El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras, can claim asylum once they cross the border to avoid being deported.

However, only less than 10% of these people actually qualify for the asylum.

But this is not really the objective. Most of these people, after the first screening, are released into the states. The loopholes such as the Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act and the Flores Settlement have made the matter worse.

As a result, these “migrants” simply disappear in the states after being released, without even seeking asylum.

This pathway should have been closed years ago by the Congress. Instead, claims of asylum and migration of children illegally have increased, and this has not served in the best interest of the US government or the real asylum seekers who have legitimate claims.

The Government Finds a Way

As such, the government sought a legal way to stop these illegal crossings and such as provided in the Immigration and Nationality Act which stated that the aliens are to be returned to Mexico while they await their hearing in the court.

Hence, Homeland Security is ending one of the major problems in the US immigration system by using the “catch and return” method instead of “catch and release.”

In support, the Mexican administration has promised protections, work authorizations and humanitarian visas and protection to those migrants waiting in the country.

This relationship between the US and Mexico is a big solution, and as such, Trump’s administration should be applauded.

This is after the Congress was advised by the Heritage Foundation analysts to shift the process of the asylum to consulates in Mexico so that the US government would not have to detain those seeking asylum and also they won’t be released into the states without their asylum claims being proven.

With this, the Congress is advised to fix these loopholes in the Immigration system.

The court may likely challenge the orders and reforming the broken asylum may only be possible using the legislation. As such, Congress is advised to do their work if the US government is actually going to fix the Immigration problems.

Brexit ‘will scrap the rules that let Britain turn back Channel asylum seekers’

Brexit ‘will scrap the rules that let Britain turn back Channel asylum seekers’An Ex-senior Home office official has said that though there are claims of more crossings in the channel except the migrants were sent back, backing out of the European Union will put an end to agreements which is designed to aid such attempts.

The Ex-director general of immigration enforcement at the Home office and former deputy Chief Executive of the Border Agency, Mr. Davis Wood said that Britain is likely to lose the protection they have through the Dublin Agreement which permitted migrants to seek asylum in the first safe they find themselves at.

He told the BBC Radio 4’s Today programmer that Brexit is likely to affect everything. Mr. Wood said that though the number of migrants was on the decrease, it was likely to increase sooner.

The Way Forward

A minister in the government reported that the key to reducing the crossings was to return the migrants. He said it is better than the migrants believe that they cannot remain in the country when they come. This will refrain them from entering and will also not benefit the traffickers.

Mr. Sajid Javid, the Home Secretary, had earlier announced that two cutters would be sent to patrol the channel, though it is not sure whether the patrol team was to rescue the migrants crossing or to stop the crossings.

The Home office had confirmed that it is working with the French officials and the National Crime Agency to tackle the issue of criminal gangs trafficking people in the French waters.

It was confirmed that today, Mr. Javid visited the border forces in Dover. His spokesman said Britain and France relied on their bilateral relations to work against the migrants.

Meanwhile, Mr. Jeremy Corbyn, the Labor leader has spelled out the good aspects of the crossing as per its “humanitarian aspects” when he said that the borders should not be closed.

UK Sends More Border Force Boats Despite Migrant ‘Magnet’ Warnings

in UK Immigration by

UK Sends More Border Force Boats Despite Migrant ‘Magnet’ WarningsOn Monday, Mr. Sajid Javid, the home secretary, announced that HMC Searcher would be joined by two cutters which were currently deployed in the Mediterranean. This was so they could patrol the English channels after 139 migrants were apprehended in the UK territorial waters over the Christmas break.

This decision was made following the pressure from Tory MPs and warnings indicating that the presence of the UK authorities in the waters may attract migrants.

Mr. Javid said that in as much as he is responsible for the UK border, he is also responsible for human lives as well.

Mr. Charlie Elphicke, Tory MP was glad about the decision. He said the best way to stop the migrants and traffickers from entering the country is by not giving them hope of finding a refuge in the country. This can be done by safely returning the migrants to France.

The migrants who were picked up in the British Channel will be taken to the UK, so that their asylum claims will be heard, confirmed Mr. Sajid Javid.

He further added that he would find ways to make sure that asylum is denied the illegal migrants from safe places like France. He promised to work with the French authorities to stop the crossings.

Counter View

David wood, the former director of immigration enforcement at the Home office, said if more cutters were sent to the channel, it would attract more migrants to cross over as they would be assured of being rescued. As such, there will be no positive results, unless these migrants are sent to France – with an agreement with the French government, of course.

He said some of the migrants may likely be economic migrants who want the best for their relatives and themselves. It is likely they are paid to make the crossing. He also said that the crime groups might advise the migrants on how to respond to questions to avoid being deported.

Majority of the people that are crossing are male who also claim to be Iranians. It may be true because the Iranians are considered wealthier than the Eritrean or Afghan migrants who wait in France, looking for a chance to enter Britain.

Also, it may be as a result of the visa program in Serbia which was closed recently. This has permitted them to illegally enter the Western European Union states nearby, with the intention of moving to the wealthier European Union nations to seek asylum.

Be it as it may, Mr. Wood also warns that most of the immigrants may not be Iranians as they claim. As such, they may be lying to lower their chances of being ejected from the country.
