Petition Right to remain for 18+ who have lived in the country since they were minors
Grant the right to remain in the UK and Republic of Northern Ireland to 18+ Immigrants currently without legal status to remain in the country, who have lived in the country as minors, completed their A level qualifications and are now unable to progress further into Higher Education.
There are many brilliant, gifted, intelligent, responsible and upstanding 18+ in the country that are unable to progress further into higher education and/or employment because the lack of a legal status limits them. Haven been shown concern by the government until they legally became adults (i.e. Bus pass and free education), it is such let down to these young adults who (without having a say in being brought to the UK or Northern Ireland) now often find it almost impossible to move on in life
