Today, Tory MP and Home Office Secretary Theresa May issued a warrant to Yashika Bageerathi,19 to be deported from the United Kingdom. The demands to vacate the country or be “forcibly removed” came into effect on Sunday 30th March 2014.
The Tory MP, which is the common name for a Conservative party politician in the UK, claimed the Mauritian mathematician leave the country. Yashika must leave without her parents who are allowed to remain in the UK. The daughter received a place at Queen Mary’s University to continue her educational work, gaining flying grades in Mathematical qualifications.
The shadow immigration minister urged for a hasty review into the case where Yashika’s deportation comes into effect on Tuesday. On Saturday, over one hundred people held a demonstration in Westminster, at the Home Office, in support of Yashika including friends from her eduction establishments. She fled to the UK seeking refuge after claiming threats of domestic violence in her home country, involving drugs and an attempt at sexual assault. Yashika who added she was “extremely frightened” was held in a detention centre in Yarl’s Wood for 42 days in December and resent again last Wednesday.
She will be treated as a separate case from her family, including brother and sister, as she is a consenting adult at the legal age of 18. One spokesman for the Home Office said “The UK has a proud history of granting asylum to those who need it and we consider every application on its individual merits. We do not routinely comment on individual cases.”
In order for government and the Home Office to consider cases you must lodge a petition. Then you require 100,000 signatures to be considered to be listened to. Majority cases are then said to be thrown out anyway if those in charge dislike the political heat of a campaign or subject matter involved to their personal policies. Yashika’s campaign, launched by her school peers grew from 17,000 on Monday to 130,000 today. May is married with no children.

She was due to catch a flight yesterday afternoon but managed to stay after British Airways refused to let her on board.
Yashika claims the people threatening her in her home country know her and she has been receiving calculating death threats. If the airline did not refuse her access, Yashika would have returned by now to a hostile situation.
Britain is usually a helpful nation that claims it does not send anyone back into hostile territory in any circumstance involving abuse of any kind in any sector, not just immigration. Since the Conservative government took office, four years ago, huge numbers have been said to change that ideal.
Earlier last year May implemented the controversial ‘Go Home vans.’ This was an attempt at kerbing immigration in the UK by adding posters on sandwich boards on vans travelling around London. They read ‘Go Home’ informing that migrants must leave the country to persuade them to leave wilfully and decrease immigration numbers. After receiving backlashes of being racist and political fanaticism, the Tory MP added they would not be rolled out through the country, which was scheduled at a later date.
May has also been involved in many bungled scandals in her four years as Home Office Secretary, including the Abu Qatada deportation costing taxpayers millions not to and then deporting him, failing to listen to and support campaigns for female genital mutilation, the David Miranda abuse, deporting a lesbian, Jackie Nanyonjo to Uganda, to be killed, Hilal Al Jedda, Abbas Yazdi, asperger’s and mentally ill hunger strike patients suffering pain and Richard O’Dwyer, a man who launched a TV streaming site online. Over 70% disagreed with May’s actions in the O’Dwyer case.
The Metropolitan police described May as “the only woman in the Conservative Party” to which May and Tories took high offence.
In mid 2013, May said Human Rights “must be scrapped.” In 2010 she held the position of Minister for Women and Equalities. She was reshuffled to Home Office secretary in late 2012. Mother’s Day in the UK falls on Sunday March 30th 2014.
