Judges Rule UK Immigration Laws Can Be BYPASSED by Britons ADOPTINGForeign Kids

BRITAIN'S border controls were thrown into farcical mayhem today after top judges ruled people can simply bypass immigration law by ADOPTING people from other countries.

The Government's ability to control immigration from outside the European Union was dealt a hammer blow by the ruling, which effectively means ministers now have no say over how many children enter the UK.

It also means no youngster under the age of 18 can be deported from Britain - even after they become an adult - if it would not be in their best interests to leave.

The ruling also raises the possibility British families could choose to adopt refugee children from Syria as a way of circumventing David Cameron's plans to cap the number of people the UK takes.

A panel of top judges admitted Home Secretary Theresa May would be "concerned" by their decision, but said the only way to reverse it would be for parliament to change the law.

They stated the welfare of children "throughout their lives" must outweigh the need to enforce effective immigration controls.

The ruling will spark panic throughout Whitehall, coming at a time when the Government is already facing a serious credibility crisis over immigration.

David Cameron's infamous pledge to bring net migration down to tens of thousands a year has already disintegrated and the raging European migrant crisis shows no sign of abating.

The ruling came when a panel of top judges were deciding a verdict of the case of an 18-year-old Pakistani youth who the Government had been trying to deport.

GETTYThe judges admitted the ruling will be a blow to Theresa May

The youngster arrived in Britain for what was billed as a family visit in 2012 after his parents split up.

He went to live with his 44-year-old aunt and her two sons, but in a "flagrant breach" of immigration controls he outstayed his visitor's visa and refused to return to Pakistan.

When border police tried to deport the boy his aunt applied to adopt him so that he would become a British citizen.

Her application was refused by a senior judge, who ruled the child's father had brought him to Britain under the false pretence of a family visit specifically "for the purposes of adoption".

I can readily see that the Secretary of State for the Home Department might be concerned by this result

Lord Justice Sales

The youngster lost his appeal against that decision today, but judges made it clear this was only because he had turned 18 by the time his case got to court and was therefore no longer a minor.

And in a ruling set to strike fear into the hearts of Home Office staff they made it clear that, had the boy still been 17, he would have been granted adoption and indefinite leave to remain in Britain.

Lord Justice Sales agreed the boy's continued presence in Britain was a "flagrant breach of immigration controls" but said the law requires family judges to focus exclusively on the welfare of children throughout their lives.

That means legal teams could successfully argue that a youngster facing deportation should not denied adoption because they may face hardship in their country of origin at any point over the course of their life.

Pointing to the "practical benefits" of British citizenship, the judge said acquiring it automatically on adoption would clearly "promote the welfare" of many immigrant children.

He ruled: "It will not be appropriate for a court to refuse to make the (adoption) order as some sort of indirect means of reinforcing immigration controls.

"I can readily see that the Secretary of State for the Home Department might be concerned by this result.

"But if she wishes the courts to have the ability to give greater weight to considerations of immigration policy in the context of deciding whether an adoption order should be made, she will need to persuade Parliament to change (the law) to allow that to happen.”


“We welcome students coming to study, but the fact is, too many of them are not returning home as soon as their visa runs out”

“Let me be clear about students: we welcome students coming to study, but the fact is, too many of them are not returning home as soon as their visa runs out,” she told the Conservative Party Conference in Manchester. “If they have a graduate job, that’s fine. If not, they must return home.

“I don’t care what university lobbyists say: the rules must be enforced. Students yes, overstayers no, and universities must make this happen”

“So I don’t care what university lobbyists say: the rules must be enforced. Students yes, overstayers no, and universities must make this happen.”

However, international education stakeholders have questioned the suggestion that abuse is rife or that universities are not compliant with current regulations.

“I don’t think anyone would disagree with [May’s] phrase “Students yes, overstayers no’,” Dominic Scott, chief executive of the UK Council for International Student Affairs, told The PIE News.

“What was worrying, however, and in many way very misleading, was her continued suggestion that many university students stay on illegally after their visas have expired, that universities were in some ways responsible for this and that ‘university lobbyists’ objected to the current rules being enforced,” he said.

“No-one does that: we can just see how so many of the increasingly complex regulations could so easily be reviewed and improved to huge benefit for the UK.”

May did not announce any new initiatives to curb student visa abuse, despite recent Home Office consultation over a number of proposed measures, including raising the English language requirements to study in the UK.

It has also been debating “for some time” about reducing the acceptable visa refusal rate for institutions that recruit internationally, which was lowered to 10% last year, according to Scott.

Scott said that there had been some concern that there may have been a “premature announcement” about one of these policies at the conference.

“To find that neither of those things, nor any other initiatives, were covered was in many ways a relief,” he said.

The proposals have been subject to “well-informed and correct criticism” from the sector, Alex Proudfoot, chief executive of Study UK, told The PIE News.

“This may have encouraged them to consult more widely and perhaps delay any announcement until they’ve fine-tuned the details, so as not to have a negative impact on genuine students,” he explained.

May said that the government’s clampdown on student visa abuse has led to a reduction in international students, but added that they have contributed to a doubling of net migration figures, which she said are “still too high”.

Her emphasis on visa abuse, however, may “feed the perception internationally that the UK is closed for business and does not welcome students,” commented Nicola Dandridge, chief executive of Universities UK.

“One step the government could take would be to remove international students from their net migration target.”

An Ikorodu Customary Court in Lagos State weeks back dissolved a four-year-old marriage between Sidikat Oseni and her husband, Waheed Oseni, over maltreatment and lack of trust.

A 4-year old highly troubled marriage between on Sidikat Oseni, 28 and her husband, Waheed Oseni has finally ended following the ruling of an Ikorodu Customary court which held in Lagos state on Thursday, 26th of August. The court dissolved the marriage on the grounds of lack of trust and ill-treatment by the husband.

Sidikat Oseni who is a mother of two prayed the President of the court in the person of Mr.Olu Adebiyi to terminate their marital union following her husband's frequent habit of checking her private part to ascertain if she slept with another man in the event of any act of late coming.

All efforts to mediate in the conflict between the couple failed as they both mutually agreed to part ways.

Adebiyi ordered that the respondent should be allowed free access to his children at any reasonable time of the day and in a peaceful manner. The court president also held that the children would be living with the petitioner, saying she was in a better position to nurture them as it were.

He ordered the respondent to be paying N10,000 monthly for their feeding and settled their school bills. The housewife had urged the court to dissolve her marriage to her husband , citing lack of trust and physical abuse at the slightest provocation.

" Anytime I come back home late, my husband accuses me of infidelity, he beats me and tears my cloth , it is our neighbours that usually cover my unclothedness.

"He also inspects my private part, he usually asks me to open my vagina to see if I have gone to sleep with other men.

"I have reported him to his family but he refused to desist from this maltreatment, for this reasons I don’t want to continue with the marriage again,’’ Sidikat said.

However, the 50-year-old husband and a businessman did not object to his wife’s claims but begged the court to grant him the custody of his children.

" My wife is disrespectful, she does not listen to my words, she also comes home late and was preparing my meals late. I am fed up with the marriage too, separate us ," he told the court.
