DCU Students’ Union urges Minister Charlie Flanagan to stop the deportation of Mehwish Saqib, having lived in Ireland for the past four years, she is a third year Early Childhood Education student.

Mehwish and her husband live in Ireland with their three children and she was accepted into DCU as part of the University of Sanctuary scholarship scheme. Like all students, she should be afforded the right to complete the studies she has thrived in thus far.

Despite her challenging living circumstances in Direct Provision, she has overcome great odds to advance academically. She has contributed so much to this country and has aspirations of continuing to do so, passing her first two years in DCU with flying colours and dreaming of a career in Early Childhood Education. Should she be deported, she will be faced with death threats from the very people who drove her out of the country eight years ago. She will not be safe. Please sign this petition to save Mehwish and her family.
