As we welcome the New Year with our hopes and dreams, 2012 will surely be remembered as one of the toughest years for non-EU migrant workers, partners, spouses and students in the UK. The UK Border Agency (UKBA) has introduced massive rule changes, clampdowns, crackdowns and shutdowns (of private colleges), all designed to basically get rid of more non-EU immigrants, their partners and students.

Unfair UK immigration policy denies residence to science graduates married to British citizens, but would allow them in if they were married to an EU citizen

Britain needs immigration say’s Vince Cable’s wife

The wife of a high profile Government Minister, Business Secretary Vince Cable, has written an open letter defending the UK’s stance on immigration.

UKBA arrest 7 illegal immigrants – 6 to be removed, 1 released on bail

Cynthia Barker of Bison UK Immigration Advisers, a firm which has helped detainees secure a release, said indefinite detention or detention for long periods is becoming more common. She added that in one recent case “a student visa holder was detained for 80 days after he was refused an extension”.
