In what is just the latest in a list of insanity from the UK's batsh!t crazy immigration system, an NHS consultant's two adopted kids were arrested and eventually expelled from the UK.

https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2017/aug/04/us-surgeon-may-be-forced-to-quit-uk-because-of-visa-nightmare

The consultant, recruited and hired at great expense by the NHS, has currently spent 10k or more trying to get visas for his two kids, aged 10 and 12. At one point, the two children were taken away and booked on a flight to the US, alone.

Now the consultant orthopaedic surgeon has returned to the US while trying to get visas, but is worried his own visa will expire while the UK's home office takes its time deciding about his kids.

The UK has lost the plot.

No - it's taking back control.

If you are going to be this xenophobic, you better have lots of very talented citizens...

Utterly moronic and obnoxious.

Basically no-one in the professional classes will want to relocate to the UK...

So bye bye international investment....

The UK has one of the softest immigration systems on the planet.
The article describes utterly crass and inhumane treatment of the family. "Sure, you can just keep in contact with your kids by Skype "

It's not.
It's a complete loss of control.
The left have dismantled the immigration service to the extent that it can no longer distinguish between a doctor and a rapeugee.

They are all bundled into the same basket.
But whereas the hordes of boat immigrants can live indefinitely on welfare while they wait to be processed, the doctor just says 'I'm out of here'.

The left probably disagrees with fast-tracking some visas because it's contrary to their view on equality.

What can you expect from a country which elects a parrot as prime minister?

That very parrot created the current mess in the Home Office.

It's great news. The NHS has no shortage of consultants and no backlogs of people needing back work. This will free up a position for one of the many unemployed BRITISH orthopaedic consultants to take.

The Brexit is getting Brexitier.

An intact family of white, English-speaking professionals.

Finally, the UK Government finds people it wants to deport.
Colour is irrelevant and shouldn't even be mentioned. The issue here is that because of some weird rules, Mrs Thies' natural born son is automatically entitled to UK residence through her, but her legally adopted children do not have the same right.

“I was told that the fact the boys were adopted meant they were treated differently under immigration proceedings than for any other legal processbut that the boys could enter Britain on visit visas, as they had done many times before, and we could then change the boys’ status while they were all living here,” she said.

But when the family arrived at Heathrow in March 2016, the adopted children, Benjamin and Edward, were denied entry because they were carrying visit visas yet clearly intended to remain in the country.


It seems this was a mistake made by someone in the NHS and not really a product of the "UK's insane immigration system" as the OP argues.
