#FightForYashika Stop this sixth form student being deported alone. She deserves a future!

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 complete her A-levels.

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)

Students deserve to complete their education and be rewarded for their hard work.

Please show your support for Yashika and call on the Home Office to return to her studies.

      Air Mauritius flight from Heathrow: 5:00pm Sunday 30th March

      The Home Office told Yashika on Tuesday that her case had been re-joined to that of her families. She has now been told she will actually STILL BE DEPORTED ALONE. The removal directions say she will be on a flight at 5pm on Sunday 30th March (Mother's Day) with Air Mauritius, leaving from Heathrow.

      Theresa May needs to intervene to stop Yashika from being torn from her family on Mother's Day. They are playing with the lives of the Bageerathi family, who need our urgent and practical support.

      Let's keep them together, as a family, in this country!

      Please contact MPs, Air Mauritius and Heathrow Airport to stop the removal.

      Yashika’s family are now also facing imminent deportation. We trust that many people will agree that this is an unnecessary escalation of this case and only serves to make the situation worse for everyone.

      We will continue to fight for Yashika’s right to remain in the UK, through this petition and other action, but will also welcome support for her family, when announcements are made.

      Yashika should be allowed to complete her education. Discretion should be exercised now that she is 18.

      I am a community academy councillor at Skinner Street school, part of the Oasis Academy family. Our pupils feel very strongly that Yashika should be allowed to stay.
