BBC News - Should immigrants to UK have to learn English?
Date posted: 25 June 2012
A new immigration rule requiring people to be able to speak English to move to the UK with their spouse is being challenged in the High Court.
Rashida Chapti, who has lived here for six years and whose husband cannot join her unless he learns the language, explains why she is challenging the law as a breach of her human rights.
And Councillor Mian Mayat, who is actively supporting Mrs Chapti's case, and Conservative MP Dominic Raab, who wants to keep immigration policy as it stands, debate whether the government is being "racist".
