Refugees and asylum seekers are ordinary people facing extraordinary struggles. There is a man named Abdullah who is in his mid-20s and is from Saudi Arabia. He finds life unbearable because he is a homosexual, and from where he is from homosexuality is illegal and can be charged with the death penalty. He is already a refugee, so it is hard for Abdullah to get a job a place to stay, and just in general to find a normal life. To make it worse he is homosexual, and he will be looked down upon even worse than a normal refugee. This information doesn't relate so much to Sade and Femi because they are not looking for jobs or anything of that sort but they are trying to start a new life in another country which will be difficult for them.
Asylum seeker get a place to stay in the UK,initially it will be a hostel. Asylum seekers don't get the opportunity to choose where they want to live, it will be very unlikely that it would be in London. Sometimes its extremely poor conditions, with rats bedbugs and dirty conditions. The most an asylum seeker can earn in a week is 36.95 pounds, dn thats needs to pay for food, toiletries and other essential items needed in a house. A woman who is pregnant can get an extra 3 pounds per weeks, asylum seekers are entitled to free basic healthcare. Children from 5-17 get free education. Some people rejected for asylum are placed in detention centers. From this very detailed information i don't think this links with the novel because in my opinion Sade and Femi are refuuges not asylum seekers.
According to the article "Asylum seeker" means a person who has claimed asylum under the 1951 United Nations Convention on the status of refugees. According to the article "Refugee" as the word is someone fleeing for example civil war, natural disaster and not necessarily fearing persecution as explained by the Convention. From this information i would say that Sade and Femi are refugees because they are entering england illegally because of problems they are having back in their country they forced to flea it. This does link with the novel because Sade and Femi are having difficulties in their own country causing them to have to evacuate their country. There is something also called an "economic migrant", according to the article economic migrant means a person who has left his or her country and seeks by lawful and unlawful ways of making a living for himself or herself in another country. All this different types of groups are very informative because now i know the difference between them and i could probably identify one of them if they tell me their purpose of what they want to do in another country. Since i know the differences from all three i believe that Sade and Femi are probably refugees. I believe this because they are fleeing thier country because of a problem they are facing.
This is an informative article with detailed facts about asylum seekers entering the UK, According to the article the Uk asylum system is very strict with it rules and it was very difficult to get asylum. Refugees can only stay in the UK for five years, this is difficult for them because it is hard to find jobs and make decisions for themselves and even maybe for their families. This information does lnk with the novel because Sade and femi have to leave the country their country to start a new life somewhere is else because of something that happened in thier own country.
