Looming US immigration crackdown aims to weed out pre-crime of poverty. And that may be bad news for techie families


You already need to pay a £100 a year NHS levy as an immigrant to this country (for the first five years before you can apply for Indefinite Leave to Remain) on top of your taxes and your ~£2000 visa application fee (cost to the Home Office to process, about £250). If you're married to a UK citizen, that UK citizen has to make at least £18k a year so that he can support you if need be (no accesss to benefits). If you're over here on a work visa you need to make at least £30k or no visa for you. Trust me, Theresa May was well ahead of our transatlantic cousins on this one.
