(Jun 02, 2008) The recently introduced points-based immigration system in the UK, under which migrants are awarded points for meeting various criteria to obtain entry into the UK, has been introduced unlawfully, according to British courts. The new regime unlawfully prejudiced migrants already in the country under the old system by increasing the requirements to obtain permanent residency, resulting in many migrants ineligible to lawfully remain in the UK.
