Beat UKBA and use the Surinder Singh route!

Sarah Teather MP | 'Inhuman immigration policy lacks common sense'.


'LAST MONTH, one of my constituents received a letter from the Home Office telling her that she would not be able to get a visa for her husband, who lives in Ghana. She works, has savings and suitable accommodation. However, because she earns less than the £18,600 threshold introduced last year, she can’t live with her husband in Britain.

'Unfortunately, this is just one case of many. A year on from their introduction, it is clear that the new family migration rules are not working. Many people are stuck in a state of limbo, unable to live with their partners and children because they do not earn £18,600 per year.

'When immigration policy is driven by a desire to look tough, we end up with a system that is not only inhumane but also lacks basic common sense. When the focus is only on reducing numbers, politicians become blinded to the human impact of what they are doing.

'The recently introduced Immigration Bill will have a chilling effect – not just on those wanting to come to the UK, but on those already here.'
