Campaign group warns new migration rules may increase welfare burden

New migration rules for people from outside the European Union are "tearing British families apart", a group of MPs and peers have claimed in a report.

They said thousands of Britons have been unable to bring a non-EU spouse to the UK since July 2012, when minimum earnings requirements were introduced.

The policy director of Migrants' Rights Network, Ruth Grove-White, says the rules could increase the welfare burden by creating more unstable circumstances for families living apart.
