Divided family.

On the eve of what will now be 12 weeks of Nick and our family being separated, I thought it prudent to share our story once more. We THANK those of you that have re-post it to your friends or sent it on to others, you have no idea how empowering it is to make people aware of these harsh, unrealistic abuses of our basic human right to live as a family. We have nearly 1,000 views and it wouldn't have been without your support, please continue to share our story and any others you come across. Sadly, we are only 1 case and there are thousands of others in similar or worse situations, some that have yet to even meet their own children. This needs to stop and England needs to be put to task and join the 21st century, not go back in time . . . here's our story

Portrayals of immigrants, migrants, asylum seekers and refugees in national British newspapers, 2010 to 2012.

The study has endeavored to remove human bias from the analysis – as far as possible – by using modern computing techniques rather than human readers and coders to identify significant patterns. The analysis focuses on describing the findings rather than drawing conclusions about debates on immigration, politics or media practices.

... Season 1 takes a group of Australians with a range of attitudes to this issue, exposes them to some refugees, the journeys they have taken, and the places they came from.  It has won Rose d’Or awards for Best of 2012 and Factual Entertainment as well as a Logie (think BAFTA).

I’m sure you can guess that the attitudes of most of the participants are, to say the least, altered by their experience.
