The US congress is about to repeal the Diversity Visa Program. We have created this page to voice our support for the program.
The repeal of the DV program is among the many amendments that the congress is adding towards the new immigration reform. pay attention to to Page 3, chapter 3, subtitle C, Sec 2303 of the new immigration bill.
We are launching a campaign to call and write to various reps asking them not to repeal the Diversity Visa program. The contacts of various reps will be published soon on this page.
Please tell as many friends as you can and ask them to support our cause.
Parliament's Home Affairs Select Committee are about to hold an Inquiry in to Asylum - covering all aspects of the UK system from screening, detention, Fast Track, destitution, media reporting, women and the vulnerable, and outcomes of the system.
This Inquiry follows the committee of MP's damning report on the thoroughly discredited UKBA, which is now being shut down, as Movement for Justice had called for. Submissions to the Inquiry describe deaths and brutal deportations of asylum seekers like Jackie Nanyonjo, detention of the elderly, ill and pregnant and vulnerable, indefinite detention and destitution.
Hearing the direct, open live testimony of the experience of all aspects of the asylum system from those who experience it is essential, as the key prerequisite of the Inquiry to fully comprehend the system as it is, and to fix the broken system that exists. Our petition and action is crucial so that change is not merely cosmetic, and Britain live up to its promise of sanctuary, safety and equality.
Whereas, Marco Rubio has disappointed his entire conservative voter base with his troubling push of amnesty for illegal aliens in recent immigration reform legislation.
Whereas, Rubio has misled the public about the bill's costly and explosive contents, as he has not even read the bill and won't agree to share it with the public.
Whereas, Rubio has lost my support by endorsing a "free pass" for illegal immigrants -- a policy that is fiscally, culturally, and lawfully irresponsible. Senator, your encouragement of illegal amnesty is against our values, and is evidence that you mislead constituents to believe you'd vote against the very legislation you're selling today if you were to be elected.
I was brought up by my Grandmother and my father. I have grown up knowing what it is like to live without both parents by my side.
You grow up and decide that what ever happens you will make sure that you will do the best for your children and they will grow up with everything you did not have whilst growing up. So now the time has come where i give my beautiful daughter , who is 4, everything i was deprived of.
Back in 2008 i married Zahras dad, an amazing man who gave me hope that there are decent people out there in this world. He has supported me through everything. After i fell pregnant with our child i came back to the UK inorder to recieve better treatment and settle down inorder to sponsor my husband. In august 2008 a new law was passed. Both sponsors must be aged 21. I was gutted, I had to wait for 2 years before I could apply.
After waiting 2 years a new law had passed... The English Language Test. I just thought 'what is happening'. I felt i was just catching up with each new law. Last year the age limit has gone back to 18. Hearing this made me so angry, they made me wait 2 years for nothing if that law had not passed my husband would be here supporting me through life and most of all watch his daughter grow up.
My husband is losing out on watching his daughter grow up. It has been 5 years now and ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!!!! As British born citizens it is my human right that I live a normal life with my husband and it is my daughters human right to have access to her father.
Recently the Australian Department of Immigration and Citizenship has altered its list of acceptable Skilled Occupations (SOL) to not include any Occupations falling under the category of "Musician". This change makes potential migrants applying for any General Skilled Migration Visa not possible.
One such potential migrant is Brian Wroten who came to Tasmania from the USA two years ago to study at the University of Tasmania where he earned a Master's Degree in 2012 and has been proven to be a consistently valuable member of Tasmania's music community.
We would not like to see Brian deported because of the Department of Immigration and Citizenship's lack of acknowledgement of people with his special level of qualification and value to the community of Hobart.
There is overwhelming evidence that you the British Government do not look after your own people. You give million pound houses and unlimited funds to all manner of foreign illegal immigrants, there are also millions in this country you the government dont even know about who are again illegal, you are doing nothing to get rid of these parasites.
They are a drain on our tax payers and N.H.S. You the government are accused of being in favour of ruining our country and giving it to the Muslims, Polish, Somalians, & any other foreigner that wants to invade us.
While OUR BRITISH soldiers are coming home from war and living on the streets and in hostels, not only our soldiers but our citizens as well, you are accused of not looking after THE BRITISH PEOPLE.
Enough is enough! Aderonke Apata is a leader and fighter for women from all over the world and we stand together.
With a deep belief and care for the rights of women to liberty, dignity and respect, Aderonke - a lesbian woman from Nigeria - helped women know how to fight for their rights in Yarl’s Wood. A group of gay women including Aderonke, started a Movement for Justice group to bring women together – lesbian and straight – to tell the world the truth about the brutality of detention, the denial of justice, the mental torture, the lack of real healthcare.
In October 2012 the women witnessed a detainee (Chirstine N) being dragged by male guards screaming and naked through the corridors to be deported. It lead to a protest, in which the a mass meeting was called in the canteen, and Adreonke read out the demands the MFJ group had drafted. The demands told about the terrible conditions in Yarl's Wood, the lack of justice, and added the demand for Christine's return from the airport, and were voted for unanimously. Women in the canteen, and more who were held in the corridors outside - over 200 - took this stand for the dignity and humanity of all.
Aderonke has since been beaten, and moved to a prison on no charge, to separate her from the other women and disrupt their unity.
In Yarl’s Wood there are women of every background: gay and straight, young and old, disabled or ill, pregnant, trafficked, raped, tortured, beaten, forced into marriage, mothers and grand mothers. Being sent back to home countries means being sent into the hands of oppressors and abusers, it is a death sentence.
My name is Dionne Dupre D'mello. I am a United States born citizen, married to an Indian national. My husband is ineligible to receive a visa to the U.S. and is banned from re-entering the U.S. for the rest of his life.
What sort of horrible crimes must have he committed to receive such a harsh punishment? NONE. His only transgression is the misuse/overstay of his U.S. issued non-immigrant visa- a simple civil offense. My husband has been away from me, our family and our home for over 2 years now.
Hundreds of thousands of other U.S. citizen spouses, parents and innocent children also suffer the same forced separation of family due to their loved one's ban for non-criminal immigration violations. These bans, anywhere from three years to a lifetime, are disproportionate to the violations they punish. I don't dispute that some punishment may be in order, but the current bans are cruel and UNJUST. Regardless of your stance on immigration in general, can you sincerely say that this isn't so? Should I really have to choose between living in The United States with my son and my entire family or living thousands of miles away with to be with my husband?
Please join me in support of fair laws and family unity!

Sam Lloyd is being deported for a crime he has already served time for. Sam has lived in the U.S. for 25 and knows no other life.
Sam legally entered the U.S. from England when he was 7 years old. Sam's crime was not a violent offense. Nor was it drug related. Sam has a daughter that was born in the U.S. His family is here. He has nothing left for him in England.
My husband has been in USA for 9 years we have been together for 6 we have 2 children together and he is a loving and devoted stepfather to my other 3 children. he provides for us and he is a wonderful person.
We just recently got married on 8/21/2012 and already he is being deported because a certain county doesn't follow rules. We need him home and I want to stop him from being deported.
Seven Cameroonian athletes have disappeared while in Britain for the Olympics, officials said.
This is extremely embarrassing for Cameroon and Africa as they were here to represent their country at an International Capacity. Their Entire country counted on them.
David Ojong, the head of the Cameroon delegation, said five boxers, a swimmer and a female football player had been missing since the weekend.
"Seven Cameroonian athletes who participated at the 2012 London Olympic Games have disappeared from the Olympic Village."
Their Names are: Thomas Essomba, Christian Donfack Adjoufack, Abdon Mewoli, Blaise Yepmou Mendouo and Serge Ambomo.
Cameroon is the economic powerhouse of Francophone Central Africa. It has a Robust and Mature Economy. In 2012 it has shown a steady growth of 4.5%. Cameroon has well-educated and bilingual young people and had a great vision of Development Strategy. Organisation are investing in Services, Industry and Mining and Agriculture at present. The Country has more than 90.000 Companies, including fifty larges groups whose turnover ranges from 20 million to over a billion dollars, and 86% of SME'S.

As Canadians deeply concerned with public safety and national security, we demand federal action in investigating and acting upon residents and citizens who have misrepresented their ties to terrorist and fundamental organizations to gain entry and/ or citizenship in Canada.
I own a legal firm north of Toronto and have extensive experience in human rights tribunals and immigration related litigation.
Omar Khadr, the terrorist convicted of killing American medic Sgt Speer in Afghanistan, is attempting to return to Canada. His family, who are known Pakistani terrorist sympathizers, gained Canadian citizenship despite clear ties to fundamentalist Islamic groups like al Qaeda.
Similarly, Canada is infested with Islamic individuals, groups, and mosques promoting hatred and genocide.
This year alone, Toronto’s East End Madrassah was caught with anti Semitic teachings in its curriculum. Additionally, the Walk In Islamic Info Centre, which advertises in the TTC and in street corner booths, was found to have website links to preachers promoting genocide and bigotry.
In July, Islamic street preacher Al-Haashim Kamena Atangana was found to be teaching followers that Western women who wear revealing clothing deserve to be raped. This individual also runs websites with links to groups promoting genocide and hatred.
Martin Collacott, former Canadian High Commissioner to Sri Lanka and Senior Fellow with the authoritative Fraser Institute, has repeatedly stated that there has been inadequate screening of arrivals to Canada from terrorist infested regions, such as Pakistan and the Middle East.
Section 10(2) of the Canadian Citizenship Act states that:
A person shall be deemed to have obtained citizenship by false representation or fraud or by knowingly concealing material circumstances if the person was lawfully admitted to Canada for permanent residence by false representation or fraud or by knowingly concealing material circumstances and, because of that admission, the person subsequently obtained citizenship.
On July 19th, 2011, Immigration Minister Jason Kenney announced his intention to revoke the citizenship of 1800 people who have obtained their status through fraudulent means.
In view of widespread terrorism, genocide, and fundamentalism in certain regions of the world, and taking into account the recent epidemic of Islamic hate mongering and fundamentalism in Canada, it is reasonable to ask for an audit of all citizens and residents who have arrived in Canada from Pakistan and the Middle East over the last three decades.

My husband Guillermo was deported in July 2011 on "Old Deportation Order". My Visa Petition thru USCIS was approved in Sept. 2011. U.S. Embassy in El Salvador denied his visa and put a 10yr ban for his deportation and Illegal presence in the U.S. We made a decision as a family; Guillermo came back with a group of people destined to be with their families and Border Patrol apprehended my husband at the fence. In U.S. Marshal custody facing "Illegal Re-entry" charge after deportation.
He only wanted to come home to us and he is not a violent criminal offender. A family man caught up in the vicious cycle of this immigration battle. He lived in this country for 19yrs and this is his home, El Salvador is his birth country. We tried to correct his status several times but all attempts failed; he's currently being detained in Texas and facing charges plus ICE has a detainer of him in which they will reinstate that same "Deportation Order".
My extreme efforts to effectively communicate to the Government Officials who handle Immigration have proven to be unsuccessful. All we want is for Guillermo to be home and let us correct his immigration case while being with us and for us not to be separated any longer or face the possibility of fighting another deportation from ICE in which we failed last year and ICE won again!
Demographers have asserted that indigenous Brits will become a minority by around the end of the 21st Century in their ancestral homelands due to mass immigration.
Latest Genetic evidence proves that 80% of all the British people have ancestors going back to the end of the last mini ice age, which is at least 12,000 years, some cases are even longer.
The Maoris of New Zealand are afforded indigenous status by the United Nations despite having been in New Zealand for around 730 years.
United Nations definition of genocide;
In the present convention genocide means any of the acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethical, racial or religious group, as such;
2c Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life, calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part.
Non-Chinese HK-Macau permanent residents have to apply for visas to go to Mainland China. Hong Kong and Macau are on Chinese soil, why shouln't non-chinese HK-Macau permanent residents get a SIMILAR card to Home Return Permit to go to the mainland ? Especially if they are married to Chinese spouse, that should be, at least, one privilege if any.
Many Chinese spouses have family members in the Mainland, so every time the couples want to visit their relatives in China, the non-Chinese HK-Macau permanent resident has to apply for a visa whereas his spouse and child(ren) would only need to use their Home Return Permit(s).
On top of this, this system is a passport consuming matter, non-Chinese HK-Macau permanent residents are applying for passports all the time because the latter are rapidly full of China custom date-stamps and they have to travel with two passports because their valid visa is in the old passport, it is ridiculous.
Since 1988 thousands of men, women and children have perished in the Mediterranean attempting the so-called ‘voyage of hope’ to Europe. Tens of billions of euros are spent every year to control our borders and immigration processing.
In Europe, we should have a better expenditure management and better respect for human rights.
Ask the European Parliament to reform laws on immigration and a more humane management of migration flows by creating a European Organization for Management of the Immigration and Asylum Requests.
Vilma Serrano and her family need our help.
Vilma has end-stage renal disease (ESRD) and requires hemodialysis. According to doctors at Toronto General Hospital, a transplant from a living donor could improve her length and quality of life. Without a living donor however, there is a 10 year waiting period for a kidney from a deceased donor. Vilma has already been waiting 3 years.
Her friends and family have been able to locate a donor - a family friend from their native El Salvador. Despite the letters of support from Toronto General Hospital, their local MP Andrew Cash and the assurances on the part of the Serrano family that they will cover any and all expenses for the donor, he has been denied entry to Canada.
This decision is unjust and inhumane. Vilma Serrano, a Canadian Citizen deserves a chance to live. Her family needs our support.
Tell the Canadian government to allow the donor, Guillermo David Martell Novas into Canada in order to give Vilma and the Serrano's their life back!
Roseline arrived in the UK in September 2004 from Nigeria on a student visa, to study for a Masters Degree at Leeds University. She unexpectedly developed end stage renal failure in 2005 and remained on dialysis until she received a kidney transplant in July 2009.
Roseline applied for leave to remain in the UK but was refused. Roseline’s consultant has stated that unless she is able to continue taking immunosuppressant drugs, which are costly and unavailable in parts of Nigeria, her transplanted kidney will fail and she would have to resort to dialysis again –a treatment she could not afford. Without this she will die.
UPDATE 22nd SEPTEMBER 2012: The UKBA have considered the submissions Rose has made as a fresh claim. They have decided that there are insufficient factors to justify allowing Rose to remain in the UK and her application has been refused. The judicial review was to challenge the decision not to consider a fresh claim so there are now no grounds for judicial review. Rose’s lawyers are preparing grounds for an appeal. Please continue to support Rose in the face of this unconscionable decision – Rose’s consultant submitted evidence which included details of the fate of someone denied anti rejection medication and this decision was made in full knowledge of what Rose will face if returned.
UPDATE: Rose's hearing has been postponed until after the 8th October but the Home Secretary is due to make a decision on her application to stay in the UK on compassionate grounds on 21 September. Please write to the Home Secretary and urge her to grant Rose leave to remain in the UK. Rose's consultant has submitted new medical evidence as to how critical it is that she remain in the UK. The National Kidney Federation have written to the Home Secretary in support of Rose's cases.
Please add your support to Rose's campaign. More information is available at the Facebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/#!/groups/315098168561449/384323581638907/?notif_t=group_activity
Citizenship and Immigration Canada has rejected the Kim family’s application for permanent residency, and stated that the family must leave Canada because Taehoon (the youngest son)'s autism represents a potential burden on social and health care. We believe this decision is groundless, since Taehoon’s condition does not require any medical care from the government.
If the family were sent back to South Korea, Taehoon may face intolerance and discrimination on account of his disability. He will have difficulty adjusting to the Korean society and school system, because he grew up in Canada since he was 3 years old. Prejudices against people with disabilities will likely mean greater limitations and fewer opportunities for Taehoon in South Korea.
The Kim family has been living in Hamilton, Canada, since 2003. Mr. Sungsoo Kim is an IT Help Desk Administrator at Pattison Outdoors, Canada’s largest outdoor advertising company. Together with his wife, Sunmi Kim, he is an active member of his community, having been serving as a committee member, a youth leader, and a Sunday school principal at St. Peter Yu Roman Catholic Church in Hamilton.
Mr. and Mrs. Kim have a daughter named Bookyung (Lisa) - a high-achiever in Bishop Tonnos Catholic Secondary School, and a 12-year-old son named Taehoon who has been diagnosed with autism. He is currently attending St. Teresa of Avila Catholic Elementary School, and has made tremendous progress since coming to Canada, adjusting very well to his new home and enjoying his school life.

Kathleen Benitez Field is currently being charged with possessing a non-valid work permit she purchased over a decade ago, unknowing that it was a serious offence. Immigration authorities were made aware of this by her abusive ex-husband, who had previously left her with three children at seven months pregnant on the doorstep of the Salvation Army in 2007.
Since then, he has had over 50 charges of breaking his restraining order against the family, and yet, through this one calculated act, he has gained custody of the two youngest children, and Kathleen now faces deportation on September 6th. We need your help to support Kathleen in this crisis – to show that we believe more strongly in doing what is right rather than following the red tape of the system.
Other important details:
• Kathleen's two youngest children are ages 3 and 6.
• Kathleen's ex was not only abusive to Kathleen and the kids, he has two upcoming court cases: 1) for breaking his restaining order over 50 times; 2) for being the potential person who hit Kathleen's counselor with a truck (the counselor now has a 5% chance of survival after the operation being performed on the 6th). The truck has since "gone missing".
• Kathleen is a sweet soul, who is currently going to Garden City Church, a community who has welcomed her in this time.
TO THE HONOURABLE THE SPEAKER AND MEMBERS OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES
The petition of certain representatives of a ‘minority ethnic Latin American community’
Draws to the attention of the House:
The Minister for Immigration discretionary power under s499 of the Migration Act 1958 and the Ministerial guidelines for unique and exceptional circumstances created under this section of the Act.
The community expectation that the Minister for Immigration will comply with this provision of the Migration Act 1958 without breaches to the ‘hearing rule’.
IT IS SUBMITTED that the Minister decision stating ‘it would not be in the public interest to intervene’, was derived from a ‘flawed assessment’ on the Applicant’s case (CLF2011/85543). The Minister ‘ignored’ to consider the applicant’s brother who is resident of Australia. Therefore, lack of ‘procedural fairness’ is a clear breach to the ‘hearing rule’. The decision must be declared invalid due to an ‘administrative error’.
IT IS SUBMITTED that the Judiciary system of Australia has not jurisdiction to review such decision. The Applicant’s brother and family members resulted aggrieved. The Applicant previously applied for Protection visa, if returned to Colombia his life would be in high risk of danger which will bring psychological consequences to his brother.
Recently the Department of Immigration and Citizenship have added retail and hospital pharmacists to the Skilled Occupations List. This list determines what occupations are eligible for independent or unsponsored skilled migration. Therefore this will have consequences for Australian pharmacy students in regards to employment.
There is currently a surplus of pharmacy students. In Australia there are sixteen institutions that offer pharmacy degrees. In 2007 1,427 pharmacy students graduated from Australian universities, this number is expected for years to come.
The incorporation of pharmacists to the Skilled Occupations List can only have detrimental effects for the careers of Australian pharmacists. Pharmacists are trained health professionals that ensure the public are receiving quality healthcare. Training of students in Australia is more than adequate and therefore those competent students should be rewarded with worthwhile careers. The current circumstance in Australia involves employers who offer the absolute minimum wage. This is possible because of the high number of graduates. As a result, Australian pharmacy graduates who will become skilled health professionals are being paid less than those who work at fast food outlets. The lack of a union for pharmacists who are not employers also escalates this problem.
Each Australian student puts money back into the education system through paying HECS. Hence every overseas pharmacist who takes an Australian student’s job is not only taking our career but also money from our education system.
Australian pharmacy students should have the right to a successful career.
Martyne Payne a hard working man moved to NZ in Nov 2005 with his family and worked hard to establish a business where he has hired locals and is held in high regard by his community.
He has been deported from NZ even though his family is here now and his thriving business will suffer where he has paid large taxes to the Government continually since his arrival and turned a local garage that was not thriving to one that is now successful and employing people .He is not a strain on the tax payer and we feel that on moral and compassionate grounds that the Minister allow him to return.
Semere is Eritrean young man. He sought asylum in Italy, but his wife and 2 children were in the UK. He came to the UK, so he could be with them and sought asylum here. He is about to be deported back to Italy on Wednesday 2 March 2011, despite having his 2 little children here.
He hates the idea of being removed from his children. He is a loving father and a devoted Christian. We trust God that he will be reunited with his family and the deportation will be refused on compassionate grounds.
Disability rights activist Peter Gichura, who has lived in Croydon, UK since 2001, has received a Removal Order from the Home Office, which will force him to return to Kenya and leave the life he has built in the UK.
Despite the difficulties Peter has faced as an asylum seeker, he has spent his time positively, successfully completing NVQ level 4 in accounting and doing voluntary work and activities with Payday men’s network, WinVisible (women with visible and invisible disabilities), Leonard Cheshire Disability, Westminster Action Network on Disability, and his local church. Peter is an active and well-respected member of his local community, with many friends and networks in the UK.
Peter was instrumental in establishing a disabled persons’ organisation in Kenya, advocating for the rights of disabled street sellers. He fled in 2001 to escape anti-Kikuyu persecution against disability activists.
Whilst in the UK, Peter has made good use of his skills, by being involved in campaigns to improve access to public services for disabled people, including London buses.
Peter has made a significant contribution to the disabled people’s movement in the UK. As an asylum seeker, he was detained in Harmondsworth in 2006, without accessible washing and toilet facilities, not given the correct medication, and subjected to painful body searches. With the support of WinVisible and Payday, Peter challenged the Home Office and Kalyx, the company that runs Harmondsworth detention centre, using the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA).
In May 2008 the Court of Appeal made a precedent ruling on his DDA case -- that all disabled people in custody before December 2006 do have the protection of anti-discrimination legislation.
During the plane journey to the UK in 2001 Peter was manhandled, causing his spinal injury to worsen. He has gone from using crutches to using a wheelchair, and relies on medical treatment without which he would die. In 2006, he applied for asylum on that basis: "As someone with spinal injury I am vulnerable to chronic kidney infection and need sanitary living conditions to survive – but there is no running water where I am from in Nyahururu, Kenya. I cannot afford medical treatment – and there is no free healthcare." Expert evidence confirmed this but was ignored, and Peter’s claim was turned down.
Removal now would put Mr Gichura’s health and life at serious and immediate risk.
Above all, Peter has built his life in the UK, has contributed to society through his active commitment to voluntary and community groups. Peter has the skills and experience that will help him to build a career, he has a job offer, and will thus be able to support himself financially if he is given leave to remain in the UK.
Allen is a 28 year old man from Zimbabwe who arrived in the UK on a visitors visa in 2001. He left Zimbabwe in order to escape forced military service under Robert Mugabe’s ZANU-PF regime.
Allen grew up living in government housing allocated to military, police and government officials, a situation which made avoidance of forced military obligations impossible. Upon arrival Allen made contact with his Uncle who was residing in the UK, and whom arranged for Allen’s asylum process to be dealt with by a solicitor.
On three occasions (in 2001, 2004, 2006), the solicitor returned Allen’s passport to him with stamps extending his stay. Unbeknown to Allen, these stamps turned out to be counterfeits, the scammer posing as a solicitor is currently serving a prison sentence for producing fake Home Office Documents. It was not until he was arrested for dangerous driving in 2007 that Allen realised that the stamps were fake, having used his passport for UK government correspondents in the past.
Having served half of a nine month prison sentence for the driving offence, Allen has spent the last three years in Immigration Detention Centres around the UK, his asylum application upon arrest having been rejected.
Daniel Hernandez is a unique individual. He came to Canada from Columbia for a better life.
He got a job, participated in his church and made a good life for himself here. He also just got married.
He was given the chance for a better life by being allowed to enter this country and it is a crime to take this opportunity away from him.
