Home Office UK Border Agency: Appeal Rachel Smith's Visa Refusal

This petition made change with 200 supporters!

It is hard to put into words why the United States never felt like 'home'. People always ask "So....why Scotland?" and I rarely have an answer-- that is, until now. I knew when I was nine years old that there was something else out there for me and when I was eighteen I went in search of it. I came to Scotland. I studied, I met amazing friends who are now like family, and I met Peter Blackwood. Peter and I have now been together for three years and I have spent my whole adult life in the UK. Now, the government has decided our relationship is not 'legitimate' and they think reintegraiton into the US will be so straightforward.

I want the opportunity to continue the life I have established for myself. I want to continue to work, and advance my knowledge and compassion to ultimately create a better more sustainable Scotland. I want to watch my relationship with Peter grow naturally withouth the Government telling me how to love and conduct my private affairs.

Friends, I urge you to stand with me.
