Home Office threatens boy, 7, with deportation.


The Home Office has written to a boy to tell him he must leave the country as he was born in Canada, despite the fact that his mother is a British national.

Sara Leung, who has dual Canadian and British nationality, moved her family to Southport, Merseyside, in June 2012.

Southport MP John Pugh said asking Jamie, 7, to leave his family showed a "lack of humanity and common sense".

This letter is the product of a warped mind.


Headteacher wins deportation row reprieve.

He met and married his Scottish wife Susan nearly five years ago. She has since been diagnosed with cancer.

When it came to renew his papers Mr MacIsaac sought permanent residency as her spouse, but the Home Office turned him down, refusing to recognise the relationship as genuine.

This is an insane position for 'officials' to take.
