The unnamed sponsorPosted: 10/06/2013
My good friend married their Peruvian girlfriend in May 2012 and applied for a visa in the summer as they had lived previously together in Peru.
He had to take a second job in order to make the minimum income criteria. He was initially happy to do this until the tragic consequences became clear.
Earlier this year his wife fell pregnant. Knowing that even with 2 jobs he could not meet the minimum income criteria for a wife and child his wife was forced to terminate the pregnancy.
She is now back in Peru awaiting the next visa application and has no support as she is unable to discuss the tragedy with her catholic family, and her husband and UK friends are not with her.
I want to petition to end this disgusting infringement of pur basic human right. What kind of government would force women to have abortions to possibly save only pennies.
These laws are aimed at the wrong type of migrant and should be fought against.
