And this is damaging for the British children’s development.
UK immigration rules damaging Briton families—Families of Britons having non-EU spouse are falling apart due to damaging UK immigration rules. As per the details, such UK immigration norms were introduced by the UK government in the year 2012. Around 17,800 families(annually) of UK citizens are being broken due to new UK immigration rules.
New UK immigration rules are tearing families of Britons having non-EU spouses and this is very damaging for the development of children of such families.
The harrowing point worth notable here is that all such foreign spouses(non-EU spouses) of UK nationals want to come to the UK to live here. And the British nationals also have UK passports.
But despite of having UK citizenship, there is no respite for them to help them let their non-EU spouses come and live in the UK with them. It seems that poor UK immigration rules are preventing all such Britons from establishing a marital home in the UK.
And all this has left them broken.
UK Church lashes against harsh UK immigration norms—No wonder, such bad UK immigration rules have invited the wrath of UK church due to which an increasingly high number of families are getting affected. Vincent Nichols, Archbishop of Westminster(head of the Catholic Church, England and Wales), has spoken against such UK immigration policy that does not allow reunification of a UK citizen with his or her non-EU spouse.
British citizens are being targeted ruthlessly by these UK immigration rules, said Archbishop Nichols. Such victimization of a group of UK citizens clearly shows that the UK has moved away from the principles of Catholic tradition. And this nothing but unsavory about the inhuman way in which such immigration rules are being applied.
Its stripping applicants of basic dignity, he further claimed. Meanwhile, the UK Home Office has maintained that the new UK immigration rules are meant to prevent families getting settled in the UK at the expense of taxpayers.
What are the new UK immigration rules--New rules for UK immigration require the UK partner having earning higher than £18,600 to bring his or her non-EU spouse to come and live in the UK with their partner having UK citizenship.
So, only those UK citizens earning not less than $30,300 annually can offer sponsorship to their non-EU (European) spouse. And this earning threshold is around one-third greater than the annual minimum wage.
