'I am a single mum of a two year old. I live in a family owned home, so do not pay rent. Yet I cannot bring my Dominican husband into the country.... so I am forced to be single. 

'So a father who is willing to work (and contribute both in taxes, and supporting his own family) is not allowed to be with his family. 

'Leaving me a single mum, unable to work, as child still so little and I am on my own. Where is the justice in this... and where does that leave the country better off financially. We could be independent if he were allowed to be here. 

'You are welcome to use my story. 

'And where oh where in all this is the RIGHTS of the child to have a father????'
