Trouble for Nigerians as UK set to deport anyone earning less than £35,000

The new UK prime minister, Theresa May On Friday announced that Overseas, workers Nigerians included,  who have lived in the UK for five years will have to prove they will be paid the new minimum threshold in order to stay in the country.




Those who fail to demonstrate earnings of more than £35,000 will be denied settlement in the UK and will face deportation according to the new Home Office policy.



Overseas workers who have lived in the UK for five years will have to prove they will be paid the new minimum threshold in order to stay in the country.

Those who fail to demonstrate earnings of more than £35,000 will be denied settlement in the UK and will face deportation according to the new Home Office policy.

The government temporarily exempted nurses from the new rules last autumn in response to fears about widespread shortages of workers across the NHS.

But the earnings threshold could be applied to migrant nurses in the future should the government decide to take them off the Shortage Occupation List.

A petition launched earlier last week to try to force the government to rethink the sharp rise in the minimum income requirements has attracted more than 2,000 signatures.

Joshua Harbord, who set up the petition on the Parliament website, told The Independent that he decided to take action because he knew a number of “incredibly upset and scared” people who were set to be affected by the changes but had no one speaking up on their behalf.

“These aren’t the benefits-scrounging, baby-sprouting terrorists that everyone seems so afraid of,” he said.

“They’re people who have worked in the UK for years, making friends and families, building homes and communities and contributing to this country’s culture and economy.”
