In April this year my brother in laws contract would be coming to an end. He needed to remain within his job but on a local contract with no benefits or leave the country within a few months. On Monday 24th July they left the middle east bound for America with the thought of staying indefinitely. Not only were they denied access because my brother in law and boys are British citizens, my brother in law was handcuffed and taken away for a strip search!!! This was all in the name of my sister filling in non-transferable visitor visas for their entry which was a huge mistake, nothing more!! They were all escorted via police van to a detention centre and remained there until they were deported to the UK. I cannot imagine what my nephews have gone through in the last 24hrs. Leaving the middle east at short notice with unotified and numerous exiting fees has crippled them financially. They were heading for the US for family support until they got on their feet. Now they have arrived in the UK with little funds, no where to stay, no car and uncertainty if and when they will find work or a home.
Feeling helpless and angry from their situation I thought of the kindness of strangers and the possibilty of getting them help through other means. Their boys need to feel safe and settled again after suddenly losing the only home they have known. My sister and her hushand do not have money to stay in the UK without work. You cannot get a house their without a job so they will need support while staying in temporary accommodation. Any and all help would be so gratefully received and well spent to get them back on their feet. This is urgent as we do not know how long it will take them to re-establish themselves as a family......
Thank you for your time, consideration and any donation towards helping them. God bless you.....
