Give the Sedeeq family leave to remain in the UK

This petition had 3,602 supporters

Trifa Sedeeq and her 3 children left Iraq in search of safety with relatives. In all 4 adults and 7 children. On their journey they were subjected to police brutality, kidnap, terrible conditions and 3 of the 4 parents froze to death in Bulgaria. Trifa Sedeeq and all the children were granted permission from the Home Office to come to Swansea to live near her brother who has lived in Swansea for over 12 years. Aram has guardianship of the orphaned children and is also a father figure to Trifa's children. Trifa has been diagnosed with PTSD and has trauma induced seizures, her oldest son has also had episodes of this. Swansea welcomes and supports this family and we believe they should be given leave to remain on humanitarian grounds as they have suffered so much. If they are deported to Iraq there is no support there and we fear for Trifa's mental state. We want the Home office to reconsider and show some compassion.
