About time the Immigration Bill made sense.From the Guardian article it says that if they make it to the UK and are granted asylum their families can be flown over direct to the UK at UK government expense. Under Priti's new immigration bill that won't happen anymore if they cross numerous safe countries to get to the UK.
It is often male refugees fleeing conflict zones who make hazardous journeys through several countries on foot, in lorries and in small boats across the Channel in the hope of reaching safety in the UK
They hope to be granted protection and under current rules, they then have the right to bring close family members to join them, such as their partners and children. The family members can travel safely to the UK by plane and can avoid repeating the dangerous journey made by the first family member.
