Earlier this week, it was reported that the Court of Appeal judges had dismissed a claim that three children from the Philippines should not have their education disrupted by deportation.
According to reports, the judges heard that the three children had “excellent reports” from their school, and that there was no free secondary education in the Philippines; however they still ruled that the claim for the children to remain in the UK was outweighed by “the need for immigration control”.
The claim reached the Court of Appeal, after the mother’s application for indefinite leave to remain within the UK was rejected by Home Office immigration authorities – prompting a series of legal challenges.
However, in the latest ruling, the judges have rejected the appeal against the Home Office’s decision; with one judge stating that he cannot see how “the desirability of being educated at public expense in the UK can outweigh the benefit of the children remaining with their parents”.
