This petition had 182,749 supporters


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.
