Facing Deportation

Statements from people facing deportation via the mass deportation charter flight to Nigeria and Ghana on the 28th March 2017:

“My ex-husband said he knows I am being deported. He is waiting for me. He is planning to kill me. If he kills me- who will I look after my children?”

“I have been in this country for almost 18 years. My family and my life is here in the UK. If they take me back to Ghana I will kill myself.”

“Both of my parents are in the UK, they are British. But they [the Home Office] want to deport me back to place where I don’t have anybody. Nobody hear our cry. We are crying. Please we need to be rescued. Please can anybody helps us?”

“My doctor confirmed that I didn’t [wasn’t] fit to fly and I did [was] not fit to be detained here and the Home Office wouldn’t do anything about it. They didn’t reply, and they still want to force me to back home.”

“When you have insecure immigration status, you don’t have life. Your life is not considered important. It should not be like this. Human life is more important than immigration status. … We need you to help us stop the charter planes.”

“We are Black, we are African, what we’re facing here is totally wrong.”
