Stop Theresa May changing family immigration laws for Brits with non-EEA partners

Against the proposal by Home Secretary, Theresa May, potentially forcing many British citizens with non-EEA partners to either be exiled from the UK or break up their families.

This would affect thousands of Brits, and would mean that their marriages/partnerships would have fewer rights than EEA couples wishing to live in the UK. Because it would raise salary-level requirements, it is particularly discriminatory against women, young people, disabled people and certain ethnic groups.

        It's worth noting that the official HM Government e-petition opposing the law changes currently has 879 signatures (at the time of writing).

        I have also started my own campaign - BAFE (Brits Against Family Exile) - on Facebook and Twitter. We have 108 followers on Facebook at the time of writing. There is definitely a lot of support out there and it's a huge issue for many people.
