immigration

I am very pleased that when reading the other comments I see that none of them can be classed as racist. only a genuin concern for the amount of people that have been allowed to settle here my own feelings are that if a person has left his or her family behind in a so called violent country they should be sent back .I believe that most immigrants  are men  why are they not in their own countrys trying to help make things better. any illegal person caught entering this country should lose the right to claim asylum and should be deported straight away. without the right to appeal I do believe that some of these people cross 3 4 5 countries to get here are we to believe that the other countries they pass through  will not help them .  stop giving our hard earned money to them in benifits hand out food tokens not cash .and just maybe the people that  work might feel less angry at how their money is used  we will always help protect the weaker countries if we can . but for now  until we can sort ourselves out  it must be that old saying  charity  begins at home even the people born and bred here are being refused help  so how can we keep taking  more and more  people in

Immigration Rules should protect indigenous citizens!

I am a 71 year old indigenous citizen of the UK and an old age pensioner. I was widowed in 2002, and met and married a Russian widow in 2004 who was living in this country. I have a 27 year old stepson who has been receiving our financial support since we sent him back to Russia six years ago having been brought into the UK illegally by his elder brother when a 17 year old shortly after the death of their natural father.We have been trying to get the young man back to the UK to live with me and his mother as our dependant (and with NO resorting to welfare benefits) for the last three years trying to use the legal channels – i.e. visa applications etc.. It has all been a waste of time and cost a lot of money from my pensions!Attending immigration appeal tribunals is like being in a foreign country, with NO participant with any understanding of my own indigenous culture!

The Immigration rules as they are today were never meant by the legislature to break up the families of genuine indigenous citizens who marry foreigners and take on the family commitments associated with such a covenant. Their real reasons were to prevent mass colonisation of the UK by foreign families particularly from past  'Empire' states in Africa and Asia. However, in order to be 'just in a democratic society', the rules are applied to an indigenous citizen equally with no discrimination, despite the fact that the non-indigenous citizen does have a choice of domicile, usually another continent with definitely better weather! In all the New World countries, laws are passed which DO discriminate in favour of indigenous citizens where appropriate. Examples of this can be seen in the whole of the North and South American continents as well as Australia and New Zealand. 

Presently I am living in another European state and I have residential status there. I have abandoned my fully paid up home – except, of course I must still pay the Council Tax etc.., and I have rented a small apartment. The reason for this is that in other parts of the EU they are not so strict with their immigration rules and DO have such things in their statutes as 'Family Visit' or 'Family Re-unification' visas which permit family members to visit without the Gestapo techniques and prejudices visited on us by the UK Home Office. I have even taken up my Irish nationality(my father being born there), as I feel so strongly against the UK after over six years of battling with the Home Office, firstly with my wife, who was deported 6 months after our marriage, and then trying to get our son back to live with us. My wife has jumped through all the new hoops and is now a naturalise UK citizen! She is 55.

The Immigration Laws need to recognise that an indigenous citizen marrying a foreigner has the right to live in peace in his own country with his, albeit new, family without interference by the state. This is, after all, an Article 8 of the ECHR directive, and is, sadly, broken continuously by the UK Home Office.

Expiring student visas

“One overseas student in five overstays visa” (7 Sep 10).  Standby for some expensive and intrusive IT system… or just make any qualification achieved under a student visa conditional on proof of having left the UK.

Tier 1

The present set of PSW visa holders are unfairly trapped by the new increase in points to attain the tier 1 visa. When we took out the post study, we knew how much was required to be able to switch.

To be fair, I feel that present PSW visa holders should get at least 15 points.

The average salary for a graduate job in the UK is £25000. I require a £50000 salary to qualify under new rules. When I applied for the PSW visa, I needed far far less than that.

VERIFY LANGUAGE SCHOOLS BY THEIR ACCOUNTS

Visas for language students from countries such as Russia and China are at present only issued to "accredited" language schools.This is because there were so many bogus language schools that were mere visa factories devised to let in otherwise illegal immirants to the UK;

The problem with "accreditation" is that it is orientated to the quality of the teaching not the genuineness of the school.Simple homestays offering conversation without formal lessons are barred and even homestays with lessons have to conform to a set pattern more or less dictated by the British Council that has nothing to do with whether visas should be issued or not;The whole system is at present geared to forcing laguage schools to conform to a near identical pattern and that conception is something that the new goverment is pledged to avoid in its search for enterprise and new initiatives in the business world.

I suggest that the present inspectors for visa purposes should content themselves with determining whether or not the language school or business was bogus or genuine!This would be a lot less costly and would allow less expensive programmes to be offered to genuine foreign students fron those countries needind visas for their citizens to enter the UK.

Deception used to gain a Visa and the Home Office new

The law that allows the HO to issue a  second Visa on the information given by sponsor,even though the HO was informed that the first Visa was obtained using false information/deciet, with documention to back it,also that the H.Sec and P.Minister informed, and all them have ignored the  request to investigate.

Probably because if this was leaked to the public it would be one huge embarrasment to the Government?

Just because the H.O. make huge ammounts of money on Visa's?

And I wouldnt be surprised if this idea was deleted……

Work permit vs free for all immigration

Perhaps its about time that the UK has a good look at the way immigration is control in countries like America. Irrespective of your country of origin, your reason for entering the UK (when not coming for a recreational visit or education) should only be to work. If you are entering the UK you should have a job waiting for you to fill, a sponsor to vouch for you, and have paid a fee for a work permit. Cutting our ties with europe to ensure we tighten up on the reasons for employing migrant workers and would stop companies under valuing the UK work force and hopefully push the government to start investing in the areas that are at greatest demand from the migrant workers. All too often we are seen as an easy target for the euro zone when it come to finding jobs but surely we should start with getting the british public back into work before we offer jobs to those from outside the uk. A green card style work visa would also ensure that the level and quality of those who do enter the UK to work is of the highest calibre.

No job – no reason to be in the UK.
