Immigration and Social Security Co-ordination (EU Withdrawal) Bill — After Clause 1 — Impact of section 1 on the social care sector — 19 Oct 2020 at 21:00

“increase the pressure on the social care sector, something that would be particularly difficult to understand at a time when…care”
“central to the… pandemic frontline response.”
“There comes a point where we need to stop just pulling people out of the river. We need to go upstream and find out why they’re falling in.”
“Today, the Home Office is already a very different place. We are listening to community leaders and organisations and urgent change is underway”.
“With so much immigration control now being delegated to banks, landlords, and employers, the complicated system being proposed (involving websites, emails, passport numbers, passcodes, and security questions to prove one’s status) leaves everyone in an uncertain position. Legitimate migrants will struggle to prove their status and employers, service providers, and landlords will be reluctant to take part in, or to trust, such a convoluted procedure. A piece of physical proof that can be produced on demand would give everyone the certainty they need.”
“exceptional or compelling reasons to justify a grant”
“cannot be lost, stolen, damaged or tampered with.”
“absolutely committed to the family reunion of refugee families”.
“The way a government treats refugees is very instructive because it shows you how they would treat the rest of us if they thought they could get away with it.”
