Sajwa was / felt persecuted and threatened because of her and her husband’s background so they moved to the UK in order to avoid the Civil War. That’s why she is a refugee from Irak.

Shakeeb is an economic migrant because he moved to the UK in order to find a job / to make / to earn  a decent living as a cook. He was looking for better job opportunities.

Alain is a refugee as he left his country for political reasons, because there was no freedom in Congo and he feared for his life / his life was in danger / at stake. 

Inès is from Portugal where there isn’t any trouble except unemployment. She is an economic migrant.

Priyanga is in the UK to enjoy better living conditions and because her parents were refugees and they are waiting for the right to stay / they applied / asked for the right to stay officially/ they are seeking asylum in the UK. They are asylum seekers.
