Current UK laws governing the rights of refugees are restrictive and unfair. They deny child refugees the right to bring their parents to the UK; they mean that parents have to leave behind their children even if they have only just turned 18; and they mean that elderly parents are left behind in war torn countries to fend for themselves. Get involved with refugee campaigning.
