For protecting immigrants’ rights and improving immigration policies IPF regularly arrange debates on different platformswith experts including immigration solicitors, retired, immigration judges, and scholars. Historically, IPF took a strong stand in ensuring that Pakistan to beexcluded from the White List – allowing the government to presume that any asylum applications from those countries are clearly unfounded, and so reject them. This struggle lasted for months where IPF headed many rallies in Pakistan as well as petitions submitted in other Countries, including in the UK, which lead to a fruitful conclusion and Pakistan along with other countries removed from the list. Politically IPF have participated in many protests/rallies in the UK against the policies negatively affecting immigrants. It has always advocated for the rights of immigrants in an effort to make their lives better and give them right to remain in UK.
IPF is also creating awareness about an increasingly worsening issue - where we are educating and assisting vulnerable individuals who are brought to the UK as being a British person’s dependent and are made to live a life of abuse and a as a result not having any protection to safeguard themselves. We teach such potential individuals how to get to a safe house to live their lives without their human rights being infringed
