The misery of injustice.

http://asirt.org.uk/wordpress/?p=208

It’s time, regrettably, to return to the saga of Eloise and Tanya, about whom we wrote a couple of months back. [ http://asirt.org.uk/wordpress/?p=187 ]. As you may recall, we assisted Eloise with the submission of a Zambrano application, since her daughter, Tanya, is a British citizen who has no contact with her father.

The Home Office, disgracefully, refused Eloise’s application for a residence permit, on the basis that Tanya could reasonably be expected to be cared for by her father- a man she has met just 3 times in the 2 years of her life to date, and who has expressed no desire to be a part of her life.

We know now that this decision was by no means a one-off, and are aware of numerous other instances of the Home Office ordering children to live with neglectful, absent, and sometimes violent parents...
