Stop Wasting Young People's Lives!

This petition had 68 supporters

It is unacceptable for the UK Home Secterary to force young people to wait for years in a limbo for a decision on their immigration case.

Young people should have their human rights respected- such as access to education and work- while they are waiting. 

Young people should not waste their formative years waiting in a limbo. As all young people, young asylum seekers should be able to plan, learn and to dream a better future. 

The cost of waiting on young people is too high. Waiting in a limbo has a terrible impact on young people's lives, aspirations and mental health. It is a lose-lose game, where both the country and the young people are losing.
