Wait, what? This makes absolutely no sense. Why are the parents getting deported?

Should a child who is now an adult and has accumulated substantial private life in the UK be deported with their parents? Should the person be punished for someone's else (their parents) mistake? Should the person be going back to a country where they have no ties but would have so if their parents where also going back? (2 birds one stone)
My grandmother was born in India and she spoke an Indian language along with English. When she was 18 her and her family were forced to leave because of threats of violence against them. Her father had moved their to work on the railways some 25 years earlier. My grandmother was born in India, however she didn't have any legacy in India going back generations, she was in fact British with legacy going back centuries. Now if her and her family had moved to India in say the 1750's and lived their throughout that time until Indian independence they would have legacy within India and therefore would be India and not British.
Legacy is the important thing, not where you are born. Which is why many immigrants and their children in fact aren't British as they have no legacy here. It will take centuries and generations for them to gain this legacy.Last edited by william walker; 20-01-2015 at 06:34.
