United Kingdom, 11th June: The UK Home Secretary Theresa May is all set to get MPs backing for tackling foreign law offenders using human rights rules for avoiding deportation.
It is being estimated that she will be asking judges to clear a motion for declaration of the right to a family life as not absolute.
The motion should convey the judges that nothing is above the public interest.
UK to introduce controversial rules on immigrants’ rights—May may announce new UK immigration rules including ending the right to avoid UK deportation on the basis of family life. Another ruling to be introduced by the UK includes increasing the salary limit of anyone wishing to bring his or her foreign spouse (from non EU nation) to £27,200.
Mrs. May revealed proposals to disallow the ability to bring wives or husbands to stay in UK unless their savings are a minimum of £18,000.
And the minimum saving must be £2,400 for supporting any foreign child in the UK, May clarified. She said foreigners or immigrants must have the ability to support themselves and not survive on public benefits.
Extension of probationary term to five years—In yet another change in the offing, the UK will make sure to have five years probationary period instead of present two years for any non-EU foreign spouse. This new ruling will complicate matters for a couple especially in case of any marriage of convenience.
The UK also has plans to refuse immigration of any elderly relatives likely to pose a strain on the NHS (National Health Service) or any public benefit system.
ECHR authority no absolute-May—The UK government will ask the House of Commons to suggest judges that the authority of ECHR(European Convention on Human Rights) is not absolute.
It is being estimated that this new ruling will have a significant impact on Indians wanting to join their partners living in the UK. The right to family life allows thousands of foreign law abusers to either prevent or cause a delay in deportation every year.
The UK proposals will be in effect if judges don’t consider Parliament’s views, the UK Home Secretary May affirmed. Aim of all new proposals is to bring down UK immigration levels to tens of thousands annually.
