The All-Pary Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Migrationhas yesterday launched an inquiry into the impacts of the new family migration rules. Migrants Rights Network provides the secretariat to the APPG on Migration and urges all concerned groups and individuals to submit evidence to the inquiry.

The rule changes have made it more difficult to bring close family members to the UK from outside the European Economic Area (EEA).

In particular, the inquiry will look at the new requirement that people wishing to sponsor spouses and partners from outside the (EEA) show minimum earnings of £18,600 per year. The government estimates that thousands of families where one person is a British citizen or settled here will be prevented from being reunited in the UK every year as a result.

Why should we in the UK allow none EU low skilled economic migrants into the country? We are full up. We should not be robbing the third world of Doctors but should train our own people.
