Media file: abe_page.jpg

With new, harsher immigration bills being considered and more migrants seeking entrance to the UK...


On May 5, London had its mayoral election and chose Sadiq Khan, the son of a Pakistani bus driver, to lead the city. A week before the elections, the two leading candidates—Khan from the Labour Party and Zac Goldsmith from the Conservative Party—were invited to speak before Citizens London, an organization of faith groups, schools, and NGO's like Migrants Organise. The candidates were asked publicly to pledge their support for minimum wage, housing, and immigration reform.
