 Migrant Voice - MV Director speaks to Independent about separated families

On 17 June, the Independent published an article about the problems faced by many families whose separation by immigration rules has been made even worse by the Covid-19 pandemic.

MV Director Nazek Ramadan spoke to Nicola Kelly for the article: 

“[These families have] already had to live as ‘Skype families’ for months or years, to save the money they need for the application, to gather documents and pass tests. For them, this pandemic is a cruel twist of fate.

“We want to see the Government showing genuine flexibility in these cases, not punishing families for situations beyond their control, for income lost or flights missed due to the pandemic. We want to see them working with these families to make sure they can be reunited as soon as possible.”
