A PWLLHELI mother-of-two, who has spent nearly five years trying to bring her Turkish husband home to the UK, has had her case raised in the House of Commons.
Hailey Louise Aldirmaz married her husband Hasan in Turkey on 15 March 2012, but when he applied for a UK visa to join Hailey he was declined due to his wife not meeting the minimum income visa requirement.
A law, introduced in July 2012, states British citizens must earn more than £18,600 to bring over a non-EU spouse.
Hailey, a trainee teaching assistant, who has a six-year-old daughter and four-year-old son with her husband, has accused the government of denying them their right to a family life.
Earlier this year Hailey won the backing of her MP, Liz Saville-Roberts, who recently called for Prime Minister Theresa May to reunite her with her husband in time for Christmas.
During Wednesday’s Prime Minister’s Questions at Westminster, the MP said: “This is the first Christmas Hailey Aldirmaz of Pwllheli won’t see her Turkish husband, Hasan.
Responding, the Prime Minister said: “I know the individual has sent details in writing to me and I will make sure she gets a full reply from the immigration minister.
