Another step forward in the Divided Families Campaign.


9 July marked the first anniversary of the divisive and cruel family immigration rules, and was marked by a very successful day of action in and around Parliament. It also came at the end of a period of about a month that saw the campaigning take great leaps forward.

Over the previous month we’ve seen the excellent report from the All Party Parliamentary Group on Migration launched, which condemns the Rules in no uncertain terms, we’ve seen Mark Reckless, Tory MP admit freely in the media that these rules are designed to curb immigration (and not to increase integration or lighten the burden on the taxpayer as claimed by the Home Office). We’ve had good coverage in the media about the rules and ways of dealing with them. There’s also been the good result in the court case in Birmingham, where Mr Justice Blake, sitting in the High Court, found these rules to be "disproportionate and unlawful" which has tempered the Home Office’s enthusiasm to refuse applications for want of satisfying the income requirement.

Don't forget...


 We gained a new influential supporter - the Children's Commissioner for England, Maggie Atkinson - who voiced her concerns about the impacts of the family migration rules on children in Parliament.

Her office would now like to hear directly from families about how these devastating rules are affecting children, so that she can keep speaking out on this issue.
If your children or grandchildren are being affected by the rules, please take 10 minutes as soon as possible to write an email about it to Maggie on childrens.commissioner@childrenscommissioner.gsi.gov.uk

Completely packed room in parliament. Over 140 ppl.

A beautiful day, to see so many standing up for their rights, and for the rights of others too.

Spotted on Facebook, breaks my heart :
I've taken my son from last year in primary school to do the EU route. He is already feeling homesick, most days he is ok but some nights he is very upset because he misses his grandparents and just our old life generally. Also our new baby only 2 months old. Given up our home, my business. So I will send them a letter definitely.

And putting people in this position helps the economy, HOW, Cameron, May?

"You know the best welfare system of all, it's called the family." - David Cameron.

"Stronger families and a more responsible society - is so vital for the future of our country." - David Cameron.

What an absolute joke.

Here's another quote...

No Freeman shall be taken or imprisoned, or be disseised of his Freehold, or Liberties, or free Customs, or be outlawed, or exiled, or any other wise destroyed; nor will We not pass upon him, nor condemn him, but by lawful judgment of his Peers, or by the Law of the land. We will sell to no man, we will not deny or defer to any man either Justice or Right.
- Magna Carta.

Introducing our new 'co-conspirators' - the Children's Commissioner for England ( https://twitter.com/ChildrensComm ), Sarah Teather MP ( https://www.facebook.com/sarahteather ), and Julian Huppert MP ( https://twitter.com/julianhuppert ).
They are of course in good company on the right hand panel ----------->

Travel requirements for non-EU family members.


Spotted on Facebook :
This video explains amazingly as to what the travel requirements are for Non-EU citizens who are travelling with or joining their EU family members, detailing the process that the border authorities should adhere to and what evidence is required.

Visa rules for Chinese people visiting are "colonial" and costing Britain "£4m-£5m a day", said Simon Thomas, chief executive of the Hippodrome Casino in London's West End.
