Government knew for years that the Windrush generation hurt by “hostile environment” – Home Office letter dated May 2016 shows that ministers knew of immigration policy’s impacts.
A letter from a Home Office minister dated May 2016 and obtained by the Guardian newspaper shows that the government has known for years about the impact of its “hostile environment” policy on the Windrush generation.
A document from Amber Rudd, sent to Prime Minister May pledging to escalate the hostile environment was passed to the Guardian. In it she set out her “ambitious” plan to increase removals and focus officials on “arresting, detaining and forcibly removing illegal migrants” while “ruthlessly” prioritising Home Office resources for the programme. Yet nobody has resigned! See article in <theguardian.com>
