UK's May replaces minister for immigration as scandal widens

Adjust Comment Print

Kent MP Damian Green has said Amber Rudd was left with no option but to fall on her sword.

Rudd had been under pressure for weeks after relevations about her department's treatment of the so-called Windrush generation of Caribbean migrants who came to Britain between the mid-1940s and the 1970s as the country rebuilt itself after the second World War.

In an attempt to derail the Labour motion, May had used prime minister's questions earlier in the day to say home secretary, Sajid Javid, would be "announcing a package of measures to bring transparency on the issue".

Ms Rudd stepped down as a cabinet minister on Sunday after leaked documents revealed that the Home Office had been set targets - despite the Tory MP previously claiming there were none.

"If you talk to members of the public they want to ensure we are dealing with people who are here illegally".

Apple sees profits soar as iPhone X sales defy expectations
We have extremely low share in that market overall", Cook said during Apple's second quarter 2018 earnings call on Tuesday. That helped the company earn almost $14 billion in its fiscal second quarter, a 25 percent increase from a year ago. "...

After Trump in November retweeted misleading anti-Muslim videos by an extremist fringe group called Britain First, Javid tweeted: "So POTUS has endorsed the views of a vile, hate-filled racist organisation that hates me and people like me".

He has rejected the controversial "hostile environment" tag attached to the government's immigration policy.

May said she understood why Rudd was stepping down and confirmed she had read her letter, adding: "I was very sorry to receive it".

Britain's new interior minister vowed Monday to sort out an immigration scandal shaking the government, saying that as the child of immigrants he was angered by the mistreatment of long-term residents from the Caribbean.

The furor has grown since The Guardian reported that some people who came to the United Kingdom from the Caribbean in the decades after World War II had recently been refused medical care in Britain or threatened with deportation because they could not produce paperwork proving their right to reside in the country.

Manchester United's fierce rivalry with Arsenal transformed the Premier League, says Ferguson
Kanu won two Premier League titles, two FA Cups and a Community Shield during his time with the Gunners. He said: "I still have a contract and let's see what happens at the end of this season".

Although James Brokenshire's return as Communities Secretary sees one ally of Mrs May return to the Cabinet - his previous stint in Northern Ireland will have helped prepare him well for negotiations over Yorkshire devolution - the Prime Minister's commitment to fighting political injustice appears hollow.

Gove and Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, who were at the forefront of the campaign for Britain to leave the European Union, praised Rudd following her resignation.

"The suspicion must be that this is part of a continuing cover-up to avoid the Prime Minister's own role in what took place being exposed". Ms Rudd was the fifth person to quit the Cabinet since last June's snap general election, which cost the Conservatives their majority in Parliament.

The issue centres around thousands of UK-based Jamaicans facing forced deportations due to lack of documentary evidence that they had the right to live and work in Britain because they arrived pre-1973, when stricter new visa norms came into force for all Commonwealth nationals migrating to the UK.
