This article talks about the amount of asylum seekers that have been looking for citizenship in the UK. It shows how hard the migrated people try to apply for the asylum process and how much the rejection process is. It is very difficult to apply for citizenship in the UK considering the fact that the UK is very strict with the laws. The UK doesn't provide a lot of financial support. Therefore making it harder for the refugees and asylum seekers to live.

This is a personal account and interview with Basirat who left Nigeria when she was just 19 years old. She had lost her whole family. Her brother in law was abusive towards her and her children, one of which was a crippled. He was then kidnapped and was found safe three days ago. She was helpless since she had no family members to turn to and her husband was away working. So she had to persevere the tortures and abuses of her brother in law. This story reminds me a bit of Sade and Femi's experiences since Bashita had also happened to be from Nigeria, Sade's home place. Also Sade's father had been threatened by the 'brass buttons' that if he talked anymore he would be executed. So they had to flee the country.
The video explains how the UK asylum seekers get paid around 5 pounds every day, and how pregnant women get paid 3 pounds extra. While in France the asylum seekers get double the amount compared to asylum seekers in the UK.

But the asylum seekers are unable to work in the UK, or get any benefits of the unemployed people.
