Benedetta Zocchi, Leverhulme Trust Doctoral Scholar with Queen Mary’s School of Politics and International Relations has written an opinion piece for The Conversation about migrants in the UK who have the status of no recourse to public funds and are prevented access to a range of benefits. She said: "Most asylum seekers who apply for immigration status are trapped in this limbo. As undocumented people, they have no right to work. As applicants with a temporary permit to remain, they have no right to social welfare. The system is carefully crafted to relieve the government of any legal obligation to provide resources."
