'Lefty human rights lawyers and other do-gooders'.

That's our Right Honourable Prime Minister there, proudly echoing the words of his Right Honourable Home Secretary.

And her reaction to it was to double down on the rhetoric.

Really worrying. I know a few immigration lawyers in London, one of them was a huge inspiration to me when I first started out studying and trying to get into it all (this was before she moved to London). So yeah, not nice.

It's also a worry for their clients, I am not sure how much face to face meeting is going on anyway what with You Know What but if people assume that every person who walks into a solicitor's office is a violent criminal then they may well be at risk, and at best these firms might have to take extra precautions and not be able to provide the same level of service as they would have done otherwise - I assume they have (fortunately) adapted anyway over the last few months but as you may or may not have experienced yourself, things like a three way phone conversation with an interpreter and someone who is a bit stressed out can be difficult to manage.
