PMQs: Corbyn asks May about immigration and Rudd future

Racists—Amber Rudd and Theresa May

Racists—Amber Rudd and Theresa May

The UK Home Secretary said she "deeply regrets" not connecting anecdotal reports.

Those who have been living legally in the United Kingdom for decades have lost their jobs, been denied access to NHS treatment, benefits and pensions, had their driving licences withdrawn and been warned they face deportation.

Ms Rudd told the Commons Home Affairs committee that so far 7,000 out of around 8,000 records dating back to 2002 had been checked with no wrongful removals discovered so far. "I didn't see it as a systemic issue until very recently".

Persons who believe they fall within the category of the Windrush Generation or their children are being asked to use the British Home Office website and helpline to contact Jamaica's Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade or to contact the Jamaican High Commission in London to get assistance.

She attempted to get a grip on the row on Monday when she unveiled a package of emergency measures, which includes a fast-track offer of United Kingdom citizenship and a compensation scheme.

The issue has created anger in Britain after it was revealed some of these migrants have been made homeless, lost their jobs, threatened with deportation and denied benefits, raising awkward questions about how the pursuit of lower immigration sits alongside the desire to be an outward-looking global economy.

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

In an address in the UK Parliament on Monday, Home Secretary Amber Rudd said the Government will grant citizenship to the Windrush Generation and that it will waive the fees and charges associated with the process.

'Very good chance' of a US-China trade deal
Trump said the US and China are "very serious" and reiterated his plans to impose tariffs of up to $100 billion more on Chinese goods.

Clashing over the row in their weekly Prime Minister's Questions Commons session, Mr Corbyn said Mrs May, when she was home secretary, had been warned by ministers and officials that the 2014 Immigration Act - which required migrants to show paperwork to access services such as healthcare and housing - would have risky repercussions.

In another step, the Government published guidance for employers and landlords to clarify that people in the Windrush generation are legally able to rent property and work in the UK. She said: "The problem at the time is that they were not documented with that right, and that is what we are now putting right".

After uproar from MPs, she said that people "up and down this country" want action taken against illegal immigrants.

A compensation scheme for those affected by the failings will be introduced within weeks.
