No J'can students to face deportation
2012-09-01 11:10:18 | (0 Comments)
Up to late yesterday the British government had not identified any Jamaican on the list of 26,000 foreign students who are likely to face deportation from the United Kingdom (UK).
The students are being removed from the London Metropolitan University as part of measures to clamp down on illegal immigrants in that country.
Yesterday a source with the British government said a number of the students were still being processed, but said, so far, no Jamaican has been identified.
The Gleaner/Power 106 News Centre was unable to ascertain information as to whether any Jamaican students have been enrolled at the affected university.
In the meantime, a statement from the British government said the university’s licence to sponsor non-European Union students had been revoked after it failed to address serious and systemic failings that were identified by the United Kingdom Border Agency six months ago.
