British Home Secretary Resigns Amid Immigration Scandal

British Home Secretary Resigns Amid Immigration Scandal

The former housing secretary - who this weekend issued an impassioned plea for Tory voters not to abandon the party over the Windrush scandal - has been appointed to the role following Rudd's resignation for "inadvertently misleading" MPs over the Home Office's use of deportation targets.

Mr Javid, the first ethnic minority MP to rise to the rank of Home Secretary, told MPs: 'I don't like the phrase "hostile" so I think the terminology is incorrect. He had spoken out forcefully on the plight of people from former British colonies who arrived legally in Britain in the 1950s and 60s, but who had struggled to prove their status amid a wider crackdown on illegal immigration.

James Brokenshire - who stepped back from his role as Northern Ireland secretary while he received treatment for cancer - will replace Javid at the Ministry for Housing, Communities and Local Government, while global development secretary Penny Mordaunt will take on the women and equalities brief vacated by Rudd.

UK Prime Minister Theresa May on Monday promoted the son of a Pakistani bus driver, Sajid Javid, to the position of UK home secretary.

But she insisted it was right that the government continued to deal with illegal immigration through enforced removals, telling Sky News: "When I was home secretary, yes, there were targets in terms of removing people from the country, who were here illegally".

Migrant solidarity campaigners this morning blocked the entrance to the Home Office in Westminster to demand the government puts a stop to its hostile environment policy towards immigrants, following the resignation of Home Secretary Amber Rudd.

Asked what he would do differently, Mr Javid replied: 'I've only had about seven hours in this department but I will let him know.' Ms Abbott demanded he restore the protection against deportation for Commonwealth citizens abolished by the 2014 Immigration Act.

As a second generation migrant, he said he was "angry" at the treatment of those caught up in the saga.

"When I heard about the Windrush issue, I thought that could've been my mum, dad, uncle or me".

A Thatcherite and supporter of free markets, he had a history of euroscepticism but came out against Brexit in the 2016 referendum on leaving the European Union. But at the same time, ultimately believed "that Britain is better off in (the EU)".

Javid joined politics in 2010 after working at Deutsche Bank.

What is the Windrush scandal?

"My parents came to this great country from Pakistan in the sixties, to help build this country".

"Very sad that Amber is leaving Government". Some lost their jobs, others faced difficulty accessing welfare benefits and a few were threatened with deportation.

Sajid Javid is yet to announce the specifics of any changes he'll make to the immigration policy.

London- One of Britains most senior cabinet ministers has resigned after growing pressure over her handling of targets to deport illegal immigrants.

And Labour MP and Windrush campaigner David Lammy, said promises made by the government should be urgently written into law.
