Over 1.4 MILLION TAX PAYING MIGRANT WORKERS IN TROUBLE
A cross-party group of MPs has demanded that UK Immigration rules that have put millions of tax paying migrant workers in the UK at jeopardy of poverty for the reason that they cannot claim universal credit must be suspended on public health bases during the Covid-19 pandemic.
The work and pensions select committee stated that the no recourse to public funds (NRPF) rule – which got to the headlines lately when the UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson was seen not to be informed of its presence – involved countless migrants encountered a choice of staying at home in destitution or going to work and jeopardizing catching or spreading the Covid-19 virus.
The report further stated that “During a pandemic it cannot be in the public interest to imagine people, some of whom are important workers and frontline medical staff, to meet the terms fully with restrictive public health guidance while simultaneously refuting them full access to the welfare safety net”.
The no recourse to public funds (NRPF) rule, which was announced in the year 2012 and stops migrant workers with leave to remain in the UK from requesting many social security benefits, was declared unlawful and illegal by the high court in May 2020 after a case brought by an eight-year-old kid whose family had been put in intense poverty by this no recourse to public funds (NRPF) rule.
Ministers of Parliament have been under difficulty to plan how the government will help people with no recourse to public funds (NRPF) since Boris Johnson all of a sudden told a meeting of the Commons liaison committee in May 2020 that he believed the no recourse to public funds (NRPF) scheme should be revised. As he clearly said “We will see what we can do to help”.
The endorsement came as part of the committee’s inquiry report into the Department of Work and Pensions (DWP) reply to Covid-19. It determined that while the Department of Work and Pensions (DWP) should be praised for its swift reaction to the Covid-19 pandemic, openings in the safety net had left “huge numbers” of migrants struggling with everyday living costs during the Covid-19 disaster.
The report stated that independent and unclear benefit rules had left many migrants without financial help. Along with migrants with leave to remain, many self-employed workers were not able to get benefits, and thousands of claimants had lost out on the £20 a week rise in to universal credit since the add-on took them over the benefit cap limit.
The report also mentioned that the £20 a week increment, paid from April 2020 to assist universal credit claimants with the extra costs of Covid-19, was as an issue of policy not provided to thousands of claimants on legacy benefits such as jobseeker’s allowance and employment and support allowance. MP’s told the committee “operational difficulties” had prohibited them from increasing older benefits.
MPs mentioned that it was intolerable that migrants were left confronting adversity through no fault of their own “just because of the obsolete and multifaceted way in which supposed legacy benefits are administered”. It demanded for legacy benefit rates to be boosted along the lines of universal credit, backdated to April.
Furthermore the report claimed that Self-employed tax credit claimants who were incorrectly recommended by government guidance to apply for universal credit during the Covid-19 pandemic, carelessly leaving them worse off, should have their original benefits reinstated. MP’s had assured to assess the problem, but nothing had yet been done and the “time for action is long overdue”.
