Because of the kind of abuse of young women (forced marriages, honor killings
) carried out by Pakistanis in Britain, the British Government has passed laws intended to prevent the importation of vulnerable child brides. These laws are now interfering with a perfectly normal marriage between a Canadian woman and Welshman.
A 19-year-old Canadian must wait two years before she can return to the United Kingdom to be reunited with her husband after a law meant to protect vulnerable young women from forced marriage helped tear them apart."It hasn`t really set in, to be honest," Rochelle Wallis told CBC News at London`s Heathrow Airport yesterday before boarding a flight to Calgary â€“ without her 28-year-old Welsh husband, Adam Wallis. "I can imagine once it does, I`m going to be quite devastated."The newlyweds have become the unintended victims of changes to British immigration law meant to discourage Britons and their families [Emphasis added]from bringing young, unwilling brides from overseas and forcing them into often abusive marriages.[Newlywed law keeps couple an ocean apart, by Joanna Smith, Toronto Star, September 10, 2009]
The laws are not about "Britons and their families,"
they`re about Muslim immigrants and their families, some of who are natives of the British Isles
, but are no more Britons than Liv Ullman,
(who was born in Tokyo,) is Japanese.
The story actually says this, after that slip about Britons:
The British government passed the Forced Marriage Act in 2007 as a human rights measure, aimed at giving family and civil courts some power to protect thousands of young women â€“ the majority from Pakistan and Bangladesh â€“ from being married against their will.
One point for mentioning Pakistan and Bangladesh—minus two points for not mentioning Islam. Anarcho-Tyranny
was Sam Francis`s term for the system of government that can always manage to take a gun away from a homeowner or convenience store clerk, but can`t be bothered to jail a burglar or a robber, even if they can catch him. Britain is suffering from this as far as crime control is concerned, and it also applies to immigration: the bureaucrats who managed to tear apart a Welshman and a Canadian girl can`t even be bothered to look at the paperwork of immigrants from Pakistan, the source of most of the terrorists and forced marriages in the UK:
