Save Samia and Fatima From Deportation
We, the parents of Samia Eman (12 years old) and Fatima Noreen (9 year old) implore the Minister of Justice, Charlie Flanagan to stop the deportation orders on both the girls and our family. Minister Charlie Flanagan has the power to grant "Leave to Remain" for both of the Girls, who are profoundly deaf and struggle with severe learning disabilities.
Why is this important?
Both sisters are profoundly deaf and entirely dependent on Cochlear implants and the essential support services they have been receiving, in their home here in Cavan. Their speech development has been significantly delayed due to late implants. Deportation would have detrimental impact on their education, health, security and language development. If they get deported back they will have to transfer to a non-English speaking environment, where they will be unable to speak the language. This will majorly disrupt the progress they have been achieving here in Ireland. Their current struggles with their education and development will only be made worse.
Their school principal at St. Clair N S Ballyjamesduff fully support this petition ) as does TD Niamh Smith Support.
