Migrant Digital Justice Programme

ORG’s work on immigration aims to empower the sector to work and campaign against the increasing collection of personal data, data sharing and new technologies driving immigration controls.

We work in partnership with organisations supporting all categories of migrants and refugees to address digital rights and privacy issues affecting their clients and understand how data sharing and new technologies are influencing immigration policy. We also facilitate collaborative initiatives and campaigns.

We also work with a range of stakeholders including government, the Home Office, Parliament, the Independent Chief Inspector for Borders and Immigration (ICIBI) to drive policy change.

This work builds on and is linked to the Immigration exemption campaign.

The hostile environment policy gives the Home Office sweeping powers and the mandate to access personal data from GPs, hospitals, schools, and job centres and use it to track down individuals for immigration detention or deportation.
