Theresa May has personally apologised to the Windrush generation

Theresa May has personally apologised to the Windrush generation

She told the leaders of 12 Caribbean countries that she wanted to assure them Britain was in no sense "clamping down" on immigrants from Commonwealth countries, including theirs.

Tighter immigration rules have affected a proportion of these people who are now being classified as illegal immigrants, meaning they have lost their right to work or to claim health care (The Guardian).

On 22 June 1948 the MV Empire Windrush arrived at Tilbury Docks, Essex, with 492 men women and children, workers from Jamaica, Trinidad and Tobago and other islands to meet the UK's post-war labour shortages.

Because many were born in countries that were still colonies, they were legally British and granted leave to stay indefinitely.

Under the 1971 Immigration Act, which came into force January 1, 1973, all Commonwealth citizens already living in the United Kingdom received indefinite leave to remain. Descendants were granted the right to emigrate to the United Kingdom as long as they acquired a work permit and could prove a parent or grandparent was born in the UK. And we demand to know how many people have been wrongly deported.

He later became the first black Mayor of Southwark in London. They recorded the names, dates of arrival and in some cases the name of the ship.

In a passionate speech, which you can view in full below, Lammy asked hard questions about individuals detained or denied NHS treatment and spoke of "a day of national shame".

In one of her major speeches on Brexit in Florence a year ago, Mrs May told those citizens: "We want you to stay; we value you; and we thank you for your contribution to our national life - and it has been, and remains, one of my first goals in this negotiation to ensure that you can carry on living your lives as before". Others have been told they risk detention and deportation.

The team will work across departments to find the documentary evidence that government has, in a similar way to how the Home Office intends to offer settled status to European Union citizens after Brexit, including looking to track information such as national insurance numbers.

She told ITV: "There have been some horrendous situations which as a minister have appalled me".

Amber Rudd needs to sort out this mess as a matter of great urgency.

But they've been living and working here for decades, right?

The apology, along with one over gay rights, was a forced last-minute attempt to save an explosive issue upsetting carefully structured plans drawn up by the British government, and by Queen Elizabeth's family and advisers, for the two-day, 53-country Commonwealth summit that begins on April 19.

A Home Office official said the rejection was because the subject of the meeting was not clear.

The government has this week said "we have some made some mistakes, which we can not continue to make".

David Lammy, who chairs the all-party parliamentary group on race and community, said: 'This reveals that the problems being faced by the Windrush generation are not down to one-off bureaucratic errors but as a direct result of systemic incompetence, callousness and cruelty'.

Thousands of descendants of the Windrush generation whose parents were invited to live in Britain in the 1940s have been #Living In Fear of deportation.

Baroness Benjamin, 68, moved to Beckenham, Kent, in 1960.

How is the campaign progressing?

The issue has enraged many in the Caribbean and the diaspora who saw the treatment as unfair.

Its creator, the activist Patrick Vernon, calls on the government to stop all deportations, change the burden of proof, and provide compensation for "loss and hurt".
