Walid (left) met Big Issue founder Lord Bird after being invited to the Houses of Parliament.

This is the latest example of ‘Christian’ Theresa May’s entirely un-Christian policy towards refugees from a foreign country.

It was September 2012 when the Taliban beheaded Walid Durani’s grandfather.

The threat caused his mother to bundle him into a car that same day, which took him across the border to Pakistan. From there, relatives put him aboard a plane that brought him to Heathrow.

Walid applied for asylum seeker status. He was rejected but, as a minor, was allowed to stay in the UK. He began school, learned English and befriended the son of a local building and development company, who took Walid on as an apprentice. He also studied bricklaying one day a week at college, at which he excelled.

The dedication and determination he showed in his new vocation led him to be nominated for the Young Apprentice of the Year award, and Walid was among 16 youngsters who were invited to the Houses of Parliament in order to receive an award from Lord Bird, the founder of the Big Issue magazine.

However, Walid’s luck changed when he turned 18; as an adult, he no longer has the right to remain in the country.

He now faces deportation at any moment, leaving the Afghan teen tearful and desperate.
