Hmmm, you provide a fair answer, thank you.
Perhaps though, rather than let The Home Office hide behind a set of rules, to cut numbers. We instead show this country and the world in general, that our Legal System or Justice system is actually about making sure that justice is done.
Because, in this case it most certainly is not. If I were the current Home Secretary I would be ashamed if cases such as this were not looked at properly.
Yenli has been here in the UK since 2001, and was granted indefinite leave to remain in 2002. For starters, it didn't say " indefinite leave to remain, but if you are a decent, home loving person, who's married into a family, who without you realising, were running a cannabis growing business as a sideline. And who will gang up on you from all sides should the unfortunate happen, promise you that you'll not actually go to jail if you do plead guilty to save the families reputation. Then, stab you in the back by employing your husbands uncle, a solicitor who will advise you exactly how not to launch an appeal ".
I have a number of Pakistani friends, they are great people, so don't think I'm against a race saying this. But, come on, this girl never stood a chance against that family.
Home Secretary's, who do no more than quote the length of sentence given as the reason for their decision are doing this nation a great disservice, and making us look like something from 1930's Germany.
We shouldn't be looking for excuses to throw people out of this country. We should be looking for reasons to allow them to remain. If our population is too high, controlling immigration and immigration as the mechanism by which equilibrium is maintained.
But, successive governments have made a complete bollocks of doing that. So that, we now start to over react like 1930' s Germany did, and begin to target foreigners, and other undesirables.
What a great testament to the multi cultural society.
