The Reality of Destitution

"For countless women in her position, the Home Office and their punitive immigration policies operating a culture of disbelief means that experiences of rape, torture and domestic abuse are routinely refuted, lesbian women are asked for “proof” of their sexuality in order for their application to be verified and more often than not, the Home Office reject claims that lives will be in danger should they be deported.

Does the fact that hundreds of thousands of people would rather live in poverty and in constant fear of deportation – reliant on friends, transactional relationships, forced prostitution or low-paid illegal work – rather than return to their country of origin, not suggest a different story, that there is a systematic (strategic?) failure in policy?"
