LONDON: Hundreds of South Asian highly skilled migrants held a prest outside the UK Parliament on Wednesday, cming they are victims of the next Windrushscandal. The reference was to a po itical scandal over the immigration status of the Windrush generation — British African Caribbean people resi nt in the UK.

伦敦::周三,数百名南亚高技能移民在英国议会外抗议,声称他们是下一个温德拉什丑闻的受害者。温德拉什丑闻指的是温德拉什世代的移民身份的政治丑闻,即英国非洲裔加勒比人在英国的移民身份。

The 400-strong mix of professionals, ranging from IT consultants to mental health nurses, mainly Indians and Pakistanis, were presting ag inst long delays in decisions on their applications for indefinite leave to remain (ILR) in the UK as well having their applications turned down under Section 322 (5) of the UK immigration rules which branded them as “threats to national security” because of mistakes on their tax returns.

包括IT顾问,心理健康护士等在内的400名专业人士(主要来自印度和巴基斯坦)抗议其英国永久居留权申请不是迟迟未获批就是被拒绝。根据《英国移民条例》第322(5)条的规定,由于纳税申报有误,他们被视为为“对国家安全存在威胁”。

Twenty-three thousand people have signed a petition, organised by the presters, addressed to UK home secretary Sajid Javid, UK Prime Minister Theresa May and Leader of the Opposition Jeremy Corbyn, calling for an end to the “hostile environment” for immigrants.

抗议者向英国大臣萨伊德•贾维德、英国首相特蕾莎•梅和反对党领袖杰里米•科尔宾发起请愿,呼吁结束对移民的“敌对环境”,有2.3万人签署了请愿书。

In the pouring rain, some with babies in rainproof-covered pushchairs, they said they did not want to return to their home countries as they had stayed in the UK such a long time they were more familiar with the way of life and jobs market here. They also said the grounds for refusal was “deftion of character” and would prevent them getting a visa to travel to any country in the future.

下着瓢泼大雨,一些人让孩子坐在带雨篷的婴儿车里,他们表示不想回到自己的祖国,在英国已经生活了很长时间,更熟悉英国的生活方式和就业市场。他们还表示,移民申请被拒的理由“纯属诽谤”,日后申请其他国家的旅行签证都会被拒签。

Carrying a placard saying “Tax correction is not a crime”, a man chanted “This is….” and the crowd replied “Windrush II”, followed by “What do we want?” “Justice.”

他们举着“税收调整不是犯罪”的牌子,一个人高呼:“这是.....”

其他人回答:“温德拉什二号”

:“我们想要什么?”

“正义”。

“I think it’s the same as the Windrush scandal”, said Hari Babu, 31, from Kochi, Ker.

现年31岁的Hari Babu,来自印度喀拉拉邦科钦,表示,“我认为这和温德拉什丑闻是一样的”。

Babu lost his job as a global recruitment manager at menswear fashion brand Thomas k after his ILR was refused last year on the grounds that he had not declared the correct amount of income on a previous tax return when he had run his own recruitment consultancy. “They said I had underdeclared my income to avoid paying tax,” he said. And for that, he was refused under the clause Section 322 (5), which is normally used for criminals and te rorts. “I feel like this country has failed me. I was a higher rate taxpayer, I took zero benefits. I have never even been to hospital. They are exploiting a loophole to meet deportation targets. Windrush is just the tip of the iceberg. There are huge issues going on with the home office,” he said.

去年,他经营自己的招聘顾问公司时,由于纳税申报表上的收入报错了,Babu的英国永久居留权申请被拒,随后他失去了男装时尚品牌Thomas k的全球招聘经理的工作。他说:“他们说我为了逃税,没有如实申报收入。”为此,因第322(5)条而被拒,该条款通常用于罪犯和分子。“我觉得这个国家辜负了我。我的纳税比例很高,却没有享受到福利。我从来没上过医院。现在他们利用一个漏洞来达到驱逐出境的目的。温德拉什只是冰山一角。英国部目前存在着巨大的问题。”

None of the presters TOI spoke to had fa th that the newly appointed home secretary, Pakistani-origin Sajid Javid, would change things.

接受印度时报采访的抗议者表示,没人相信新任命的巴基斯坦裔英国大臣萨伊德•贾维德会改变现状。

“I hope that Sajid understands our pain as he was also an immigrant, but then he is part of Theresa May’s go nment so I don’t have that much hope,” Babu said.

Babu说:“我希望萨伊德能理解我们的痛苦,他也是一个移民,但他是特蕾莎·梅政府的一员,所以我没抱太大希望。”

“It is similar to Windrush as we have also been here a long time and are doing everything . Just because of one small technical error on our tax returns the home office cannot say we are a threat to national security. None of us are threats,” said Ashish Bjigari, 31, from Hyderabad.

现年31岁的Ashish Bjigari,来自印度海得拉巴,他表示,“与温德拉什相似,我们在这里已经生活了很长时间,遵纪守法。就算我们的纳税申报单上有一个小小的技术错误,部也不能因此说我们威胁国家安全。我们不是威胁。”
