Early Day Motion 1004: Deportation of Irene Clennell
That this House condemns the deportation of Irene Clennell, who has been married to a British man for 27 years and has two British sons and a granddaughter, to Singapore, due to her spending periods of time in Singapore caring for her elderly parents and invalidating her residential status; notes that Mrs Clennell was detained at a routine appointment at an immigration reporting centre in Middlesbrough and held prior to deportation in Scottish detention centre Dungavel House, which is infamous for abuse and inhumanity, and on Sunday morning was taken from Dungavel to Singapore, with just £12 in her pocket, without any of her clothes or belongings, leaving behind her sick husband Jon, for whom she is a carer; further notes that this is just one example of the Government's relentless drive towards unrealistic migration caps that don't take real lives into account and tear apart families; and urges the Home Office to develop a more humane approach to immigration rules immediately.
