A young mum claims ‘it is one rule for the rich’ after being told she must earn £18,600 before her husband can move to England.


Jade el Jaghaoui, 21, of River View, Braintree fell in love with 24-year-old Merouane, who is from Morocco, in 2007 when they were both living in Spain.

She returned home in October 2010 hoping he could join her soon and became even more desperate after finding out she was pregnant a few weeks later.

In July 2012 immigration rules changed meaning a partner must earn £18,600 to bring a non-European spouse to join them.
