We are asking for Status Now: We believe that the public health is only public if we include the undocumented, mostly people of color, migrants living in the UK. We are not asking for amnesty. Amnesty is only for those who commit a crime, guilty, and was pardoned. We refused to deploy the language of this government criminalizing migration. We are asking for Status Now – Rogelio Braga
There are a number of calls for Leave to Remain in relation to people who are undocumented and in UK.
As a reminder, Status Now 4 All calls for Leave to Remain to be given to all undocumented migrants and those in the legal process.
