These Walls Must Fall
We are Voice for Voiceless Immigration Detainees Yorkshire, a group of campaigners with These Walls Must Fall. In our group, many of us have had to report to the Home Office buildings in Sheffield and Leeds for many years as part of our ‘bail conditions’. In-person reporting has started again since being stopped under the first lockdown, and last week we wrote to the Home Secretary to raise our concerns and ask that it is stopped for good.
Last Friday we met with Sheffield MP Olivia Blake about this, who committed to champion our campaign. We ask that you stand with us, write to your MP about this issue, send them this web page, and ask them to write to the Home Office with our demand to stop in-person reporting now, and for good. You can also share this letter on your social media accounts.

Did you know?
Since January 2018, all migrants lawfully in the UK without leave to remain are technically on immigration bail, including asylum seekers. This replaces the previous status of “temporary admission”. In practice this means that all people without leave to remain are subject to bail conditions – often including reporting in person at Home Office buildings, police stations, or other government premises.
