Petition to UK Home Office, Keir Starmer, Sajid Javid

URGENT! Give Natasha the right to stay in the UK with her husband of 6 years!

Aidan met Natasha in 2011 when he moved to London. The next year they married, and built a life together. But two years ago, Natasha who is originally from Canada, had her spousal visa renewal refused. We campaigned and managed to stop immediate deportation but now she could be forced to leave. Please sign this petition to help keep them together in the UK. Aidan is my friend who I met 14 years ago in the music community, so when I heard that they were being threatened with being torn apart, I started this petition. We need to keep up the pressure until Natasha gets the right to stay. Natasha cares for Aidan daily due to a serious illness that he is fighting. He is diagnosed with nerve damage caused by a prolapsed disc and degeneration of his spine. He’s suffered from minor pain up to full blown partial paralysis of one side; Natasha has stood by his side providing him with financial support and a lot of loving care to help him get back to good health. His poor health has prevented him from working full-time, though when possible he’ll do an the occasional gig. He also has Asperger’s Syndrome which is exacerbated by the attempt to deport Natasha. The Home Office do not deem Aidan's illness as severe, despite notes from doctors and hospitals proving otherwise. And despite their income being over £25k a year (well over the £18.5k threshold), it is not deemed as acceptable – because some came from Natasha’s self-employed roles and Natasha's family during a difficult time. We petition Sajid Javid and the Home Office to reverse their decision to deport Natasha. Natasha and Aidan are inseparable, completely reliant on one another, and deeply in love. This decision is destroying them, and Aidan's health is already being severely affected by it. The Home Office should not be able to separate legitimate, loving couples who, until they were told the truth about Aidans entitlement last year, had never turned to the state for financial help.  Please sign and share this petition https://www.gofundme.com/natasha-stevens-legal-fees-for-visa

Petition to Home Secretary

Reunite British Army soldier with his daughter

My constituent Denis Omondi just wants to be a dad to his daughter Anne, who currently lives in Kenya. He has uncontested custody of Anne, yet she is still being refused entry, to come to live with him and his wife Shelagh, by the Home Office.  In rejecting Anne's visa, the Home Office claimed there wasn't enough evidence to show that Denis and Ann had spent enough time together.  Denis visits Anne as much as he can, given that he is also a serving soldier in the British Army. He is stationed at Fort George and has served tours in Afghanistan, Iraq and Cyprus at the behest of the UK Government. Denis is a British citizen and dedicates his life to protecting ours. He deserves to have his daughter safe, with him and in a loving home.  Please show Denis, his wife Shelagh and Anne your support by signing this petition, calling on the Home Secretary to reunite this loyal soldier and loving father with his daughter. Thank you  Drew Hendry MP Inverness, Nairn, Badenoch & Strathspey   Further Background:  My question to the Prime Minister: https://www.facebook.com/DrewHendrySNP/videos/2230217173868099/ Recent articles: https://www.thenational.scot/news/17380253.soldier-in-scotland-refused-visa-for-reunion-with-teen-daughter/ https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/politics/soldier-serving-immigration-visa-daughter-13896500 https://www.dailyrecord.co.uk/news/uk-world-news/british-soldier-devastated-after-daughter-13898620

Taking down Mexican Wall

Having a wall at the border DOES NOT REDUCE illegal immigration, it in fact INCREASES illegal immigration. America needs to start getting their act together understanding the best way is to take down the wall allowing a bridge between Mexico and America to unite as one.  When there is no wall, people from America and Mexico can freely walk across the border at their own free will. Because of how America has tried to strengthen the wall, the level of illegal immigration rises as people moving to and from now have a high probability of being unable to go back to their family and home. This is something that America has not addressed properly which represents incompetency.  Considering the inhumane actions by Jeff Sessions and how Donald Trump has, from time to time again, blamed other parties for his decisions results in one of the worst acts by ANY United States Government. Making a lie the truth, this has resulted in extreme captivity of innocent lives which doesn't seem like this reality is going to dissipate with views of xenophobia/discrimination/racism/torture due to locking up people in caged areas. First most, it's wrong to ANY degree to lock up innocent lives and this shows how much the US Government has gone downhill ever since January 20 2017.  My point is this: No wall means lower Illegal Immigration My point is not this: Having a wall means lower Illegal Immigration America is a nation built up of immigrants and vast migrant history where now is seems as though most Republicans and US Citizens are now advocating a supremacy status. It's wrong to any degree to support Supremacy views considering they're immensely extreme plus it's a definite human right to ensure every... EVERY human being has their choice to live and travel where they want to, not by the command of the US Government. The first step of success to achieve stronger immigration is to take down what divides another country and it's people which being is the wall. Citizens of Mexico flock in and out at their own ability considering some regions are poor in condition as they thrive on living in a better world. THAT IS THE REASON WHY THEY CROSS THE BORDER. If we strengthen the wall, we have just given way to permanently being unable to stop Illegal Immigration once and for all.  If the wall were to be completed, it would have to go through many housing/rivers/trees which means a lot of damage to the environment plus would come at expense of billions if not trillions of dollars. Implementing the wall was a bad idea from the beginning and has made tackling Illegal Immigration more difficult. Having a wall at the border does NOT make things better, it violates human rights and hurts the American economy. As for me not being an American citizen, it's common sense that the best decision is to strip down the wall completely to save our environment and provide security to Mexican citizens as they, as much as anyone, should have their own will to travel freely without authoritarian exhaustion.   *The wall at the border in the middle of America and Mexico needs to be taken down. One should be saying that countries working together is a better result than countries working against each other*
