"the migration court says no to 34-year-old already is in Sweden"
"three months ago gave birth to Leile de Souza Holmström daughter Evelyn at the university Hospital in Linköping. "
"Now both the migration board and the migration court decided that the 34-year-old should be expelled. "
"the Reason: She had a trip to Sweden to give birth when the matter was settled. "
" I just want us to be together, said Leile. "
"in the Middle of what would have been life's happiest time is Morgan Holmström at the central Station with a stack of papers under his arm and haunted eyes. "
"He has come to Stockholm together with his wife Leile and his daughter Evelyn to seek legal expertise. The three-month-old girl sleep in the cart, oblivious, as only a small child can be about the chaos around him. "
" I can't imagine having to live without her. Just the thought of it breaks my heart, said Leile. "
"Morgan points frustrated at the forms he has with him. There are documents from the Swedish Tax agency and the social Insurance office that he believes that the Swedish migration board are not understood. At the top of the pile is the decision from the migration court, which spoiled the family's life in the last week. "
" We have really tried to do everything right all the time, and now it feels like we are punished for it. I don't know what we are going to take us to. "
"”unable to control”"
"They met in Leiles country, Brazil 2009. Morgan, who works with a variety of social entrepreneurial projects, helped to arrange jättekonferensen the World Social Forum in the coastal city of Belém."
"Leile read then in their final year of teacher training, and was on the spot to participate in the meeting. "
" When we started to get to know each other, I got the feelings that I have not had for any other man before. There was so much that sued, said Leile. "
"I had not planned to fall in love with someone from a different country, but it is not possible to control such things," says Morgan. "
"for several years, he divided his time between Brazil, Germany and Sweden. 2014 decided on the couple that it was time to crack down bopålarna seriously. The choice fell on Sweden. "
"– It was actually a pretty easy decision to make. The crime rate is much higher in Brazil, and, furthermore, the labour market was worse than the Swedish, " says Morgan. "
"Got no on valentine's day"
"Leile and Morgan got married in February 2015. During the late summer of the following year applied Leile for a residence permit. The process was long and drawn out. "
" We received the decision from the migration board on valentine's day 2018. Because the letter came just the day so we thought that the news would be positive, but it did not, unfortunately, said Leile. "
"the migration board rejected the request because they found that Morgan failed to show that his self-employment gave a large enough income to support both him and his wife."
"– They reviewed my finances in 2017, but refused to look at that year's revenue but only saw how it was 2016. Then I had large parts of my business in Brazil, and, therefore, quite small income in Sweden. In the beginning of 2018, I began instead to take a salary from my one limited liability company. But it did not want to accept because I own the company."
"– It feels like the knowledge of the self-employed conditions are too poor at the Swedish migration board, or in all cases of those who handled our case."
"the Spouses appealed the decision to the migration court. In the decision, that Morgan brought with him to Stockholm, stated that the agency changed the perception of his income. "
"”Nowadays, it is considered demonstrated that the maintenance requirement in each case for the moment is satisfied”, is it."
"But even so, the court of the Migration board's line – and rejects Leiles application. The reason is that she is in the process traveled to Sweden on a tourist visa to give birth. "
"– We have kept the Swedish migration board informed all the time, and we have asked them to prioritise our case because we wanted to get everything ready before the baby would come. But it was not because the decision was so, " says Morgan."
"If Leile been left in Brazil was the outcome likely have been different. In the judgment it says:"
"”the migration court assesses against this background that the residence permit on the basis of the connection would have been granted if the examination was made prior to entry into Sweden”."
" If they had understood from the beginning that everything was okay with the economy so we had never ended up here. It is an absurd situation, " says Morgan."
"– Sweden has signed the UN's child convention, which establishes that the best interests of the child should be put first. I don't understand how it can be the best for our child to be separated from her mother when she was still breastfeeding."
