The fight to stop three Swansea based Iraqi children and their mother being deported is stepping up.
Bethan Jenkins AM yesterday tabled a question at the Senedd calling for a statement on any urgent representations that the Welsh Government is willing to make with the UK Government about their rejected asylum application.
Last Friday, we broke the story that 8 people had been refused in total - including seven children and one parent. Out of two families who travelled to the UK together, only one parent survived. The mother has 3 children aged between five and twelve.
The other four children lost both parents on their journey. Since the weekend they have been granted emergency leave to stay here for two-and-a-half years with their uncle. The family have been given a council house and a crowdfunding page has been organised to help them set up home.
