Immigration scandal expected to spread beyond Windrush group | United Kingdom news

Amber Rudd is set to face a grilling from MPs over her handling of the Windrush scandal as Labour stepped up its calls for the Home Secretary to resign.

Using all of his time at prime minister's questions to focus on Windrush for the second successive week, the Labour leader lambasted Theresa May and her ministers for what he said was an inadequate response to the crisis, and a failure to realise her so-called hostile environment immigration stance had triggered it. "The British public will tell him we should deal with illegal immigration", the prime minister said.

Mr Johnson told the gathering of Theresa May's top team there needed to be a "broader" amnesty covering people who had lived in the United Kingdom for more than 10 years and had no criminal record, the paper said.

She said the Home Office had not found any Windrush migrants who had been deported.

'It's wrong to think the net migration target is the problem here.

But he again failed to land a decisive blow despite the PM's evasive answers in which she was allowed to wax lyrical about tackling illegal immigration, despite the fact legal Commonwealth British residents have fallen victim to policies aimed at those illegally in the country.

In a letter penned to CARICOM Secretary General, Ambassador Irwin LaRocque, Comissiong said three civil society groups, the Clement Payne Movement of Barbados, the Caribbean Chapter of the International Network In Defense of Humanity, and the Pan African Coalition of Organizations (PACO), have taken an interest in the "racist infringement" those of the Windrush Generation have been enduring.

It was also announced that financial compensation will be given to members of the Windrush Generation negatively affected by enforcement of the earlier change in immigration policy and that the British knowledge and language tests usually applicable to citizenship applications would not be required.

'I didn't see it as a systemic issue until very recently'.

Ms Rudd also rejected suggestions that the Tories' target to bring net migration below 100,000 had fuelled the Windrush saga.

"Do not try to hide behind the cabinet when they don't agree with you on this and are trying to clear up the mess".

She added: "I have private conversations with the prime minister which will stay private".

'I don't think that's got anything to do with it, ' she said.
