18 Sep Dublin Agreement Migration
Earlier, in her first State of the European Union address, the head of the European Commission called for Europe`s cooperation on migration. We want a close future partnership to address common challenges in the area of asylum and illegal immigration. Section 17 of the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018 requires the government to negotiate an agreement with the EU allowing unaccompanied children to apply for asylum in the EU to join family members legally residing in the UK if it is in their best interest. This obligation applies whether we leave the EU with or without an agreement. The implementation of transfers puts in place an agreement and we strive to negotiate such an agreement as quickly as possible. A UK asylum application may continue to be considered inadmissible if the applicant first transited through another EU country. There will be common structures for asylum and return and there will be a strong new solidarity mechanism,» van der Leyen told EU lawmakers in Brussels. A.S.: Consult www.dav-migrationsrecht.de.
