EVANGELICAL ALLIANCE CHALLENGES MINISTER ON IMMIGRATION POLICIES

The Evangelical Alliance is calling for a meeting between the Immigration Minister and church leaders after a UN report outlined areas of concern for religious freedom in the UK.

The Alliance was one of the faith groups which met UN Special Rapporteur for religion and belief, Asma Jahangir during her visit to the UK last June.

During the meeting, the Alliance gave her examples of translation problems and "ludicrous questioning" of asylum seekers by case workers and the judiciary, which led to people being refused asylum from dangerous home countries.
