ABSTRACT
The author comments on the restrictions of the British government on immigrants working as personal assistants (PAs). He denounces the rule of the Home Office requiring immigrant PAs to sell their properties and move into a special accommodation to speed up their citizenship application. He notes that the government policy on asylum and immigration resembles that of Germany's in the 1930s. He urges the government to create positive immigration policy to promote good personal assistance in which social care depends on.
