A beloved dad was deported back to Spain after arriving back in the UK with his family after visiting family in Europe.

Gines Rodriguez, 45, a Spanish citizen, was removed from the UK yesterday on Saturday four days after he was detained at Leeds Bradford Airport following a trip to visit his elderly mother in Spain. He lived with wife Aimee Grossman and their daughter for two years from 2016 – 2018 before returning again to the UK in 2021. It is understood he applied to live in the UK under the European Union Settlement Scheme – but missed the June 2021 deadline.

Aimee, 43, told Manchester Evening News: “He was treated like absolute dirt. He returned on Tuesday and was told he had to leave on Saturday – there’s no justice whatsoever.

“We’ve been married for 15 years, it’s not like we just got married last week. It just feels like there’s no human rights. I’m British, my daughter’s got a British passport.

“They told him we’ll all have to go to Spain and start a new life there, or we should separate and Gines should go back to Spain by himself – it’s just horrible.”

Aimee, Gines and their 15-year-old daughter Rubi live in Grimsby and lived in the UK from 2016 to 2018, before returning to Spain to care for Gines’ 84-year-old mother who suffers from bad legs. They then returned in 2018 and have lived in the UK ever since. Aimee, who is a British citizen, said they have never had issues with border control or immigration while previously travelling between the two countries.

Gines went to visit his mum for a week on June 5. On his return to the UK on June 11, he was stopped at Leeds Bradford Airport passport control. He was then taken to immigration – where Aimee said he was handcuffed, questioned, and told he would be deported to Spain four days later.

Aimee said: “He’s tried to apply for the EU settlement scheme, but he doesn’t qualify – god knows why. It just completely baffles me – we’ve never had issues before. Suddenly our whole lives have done a complete 360.”
