Due to be deported from Britain, arbitrarily, and alone without her family, just for turning 18. That is how civilised we aren't.
Yashika arrived in the UK along with her mother and brother in 2012 to escape abuse and danger. In that time, Yashika has proved herself a model student of Oasis Academy Hadley and valuable member of the Enfield community. Simply because she is now over 18 she is to be torn apart from her family in the UK and deported to Mauritius without even having the chance to finish an educational course.
Yashika Bageerathi is being held at Yarl’s Wood detention centre. She has been told she will be imminently deported alone to a country where she has neither friends nor family.
This is against Article 8 of the Human Rights Act (respect for private and family life). That she has technically become an adult does not mean there is anything fair or just about tearing her away from her mother and siblings.
When Britain is in this condition it is a particularly high level of betrayal for Scottish nationalism to be in the condition described in the previous post.
