    Home Office grants visas to ISIS-supporting charity CAGE | Daily Mail Online

    ‘ISIS-supporting' group that claimed Jihadi John ‘wouldn’t hurt fly’ is given Home Office visas allowing it to bring in foreign workers
    Some 900,000 visas have been granted since the Tories came to power
    Visas have been granted to male strippers and even Chinese restaurants.
    The government u-turned over plans to force firms to count foreign staff
    PM Theresa May insisted Brexit would impose restrictions on foreigners

    We know it's tulip due the "skills shortage" in IT and in Indian restaurants.

      Yet THIS poor woman's sister is not being allowed in to give her a potentially life-saving bone marrow transplant.
      Disgraceful!

        Strange article. Goes from non-EU immigration to EU immigration and back again, says twice that that organisations have been "granted visas", when they've been given a license to sponsor visas. I guess DM readers don't know the difference between EU immigration (potentially stopped by Brexit) and non-EU (unaffected), and a visa and a license.

        And of course, it's got nothing to do with ICT.

          It happened before with a Jamaican guy who needed a transplant, and the only perfect match was a relation from Jamaica with a young child.

          The UK government was embarrassed into allowing her in by the media. It helped that the church and a charity funded her stay.

          The home office do it all the time.

            sadly so, we should be able to be compassionate without being shafted.

            Unfortunately having met a few overstayers it seems a popular route in.

                    Surprised, because I thought would be the other way around.
