Yesterday, I questioned the Home Secretary on the Windrush deportations.
I pointed out that, the Windrush scandal is what happens when we have a national debate and a Government mentality that always sees migration in negative terms as something to be feared and resisted.
Any Government has the right to take measures against illegal immigration, but the point is that the Windrush generation were not illegal. They came here legally, they worked here legally and they have stayed here legally.
I asked her what more she can do to address the legitimate grievances of the Windrush generation and what more she can do to prevent this from being repeated with legal migration from elsewhere, whether it’s from the sub-continent or the European Union?
