According to The Times, his firm was criticised in Court relating to an immigration case, writing
'The firm of a solicitor who stood for Fianna Fail in the recent local elections has been criticised in a High Court immigration case involving a suspected sham marriage.

“In many other countries similar programmes take place and it is time we accept that we can learn from such expertise.“
Yes, Sweden offers asylum claimants the right to work immediately. I wonder is Khurshid aware that the employment rate for African nationals in Sweden is identical to the European average employment rate for African nationals, which is to say, low, incredibly low.
What one ought to learn from Sweden is that this type of policy increases asylum applications and offers few employment-based or economic benefits. The average employment rate (2013) for Swedish nationals was 81% for EU nationals in Sweden was 75%, for non-EU nationals in Sweden was 49%.
I’d like to get Khurshid’s thoughts on this but unfortunately, comments are closed.
