Suella Braverman targets spouses and students in plan to cut … – The Times

Suella Braverman has drawn up a blueprint for reducing immigration that would target foreign students, make it harder to bring spouses to the UK and increase the minimum salaries for companies employing skilled workers.
Under a draft of the proposals, seen by The Times, the government would increase the minimum income threshold for British citizens applying for a family visa for a spouse or children.
Currently, a couple must prove that they have an income of at least £18,600 and show evidence they have enough money to cover the costs of any children who do not have British citizenship.
Braverman’s plans would also increase the minimum salary thresholds for workers filling jobs on the shortage occupation list, which gives employers in certain sectors more flexibility
