UK Border Forces:
- ignored the documents the UK government gave my husband
-told him they (detailed directions and paperwork for appealing visa decisions and stating he has a right to make his appeal in the country) were “wrong”
-personally went through every single item in our luggage
-grilled us about non-threatening items (like extension cords and multivitamins)
-allowed him only five minutes of phone time to make arrangements
-denied him access to the documents he presented, including the ones stating he had a right to enter the UK…so he could not read them off to any legal representation he called
-denied him the right to hear the exact reasons for his denial of entrance, or speak to anyone with the qualifications and background to make those decisions
-lied to him about contacting me by phone AND attempting to find me in person
- held him in a cell for ten hours
All over a visa application to stay with me in the UK for exactly 12 months. Not to live there. Not to seek refuge. To live there, without NHS or any other public care or resources. For 12 months.
Then they sent him home without allowing him to say goodbye to me.
