i am an immigrant…i am a US citizen who has lived in england for the past 5 years. as i type this my passport is sitting on a caseworkers desk somewhere in the home office waiting for its long awaited “indefinite leave to remain” visa…very few people can understand the stress i have been under for the past 6-12 months.
immigrants are not wanted in england anymore, not even highly educated and trained immigrants like me. i used to love everything about england but after 5 years, i’ve begun to see the cracks…
this may well become a page about repatriation…i’m not quite there yet….but very close.
just an update in case you are new here:
i recieved my indefinite leave to remain on 2 december 2008, after waiting 3 months. i can’t help dwelling on the fact that it was dated 25th october.
i am tempted to remove some of my posts on this page about the wait but i think it’s important for people to see how difficult and exasperating this wait can be!
