MIGRANTS: Windrush Generation



Three weeks ago, the PM Teresa May said as part of a televised speech that her Brexit plan will stop EU citizens from jumping the queue. Migration would become skills-based, with Europeans no longer prioritised over "engineers from Sydney or software developers from Delhi".

Theresa May’s agenda is not new, this year it has seen the light the scandal that our Prime Minister led back in 2010, while she was Secretary of State for the Home Office. May was the Machiavellian founder and creator of the Hostile environment policy, tackling without mercy the Windrush Generation. This year, instead taking responsibility of this illegal act, she sacked Amber Rudd from her post of Secretary of State for the Home Office. Offering Rudd later, the job of Minister for Works and Pensions.

The Hostile environment policy, which came into effect in October 2010, is a nasty set of administrative and legislative measures designed to make staying in the United Kingdom as difficult as possible for people without "leave to remain", in the hope that they may "voluntarily leave". We all know now that most of this people did not have the documentation to proof their status as previously the Home Office have taken this card/ document from them, without giving a replacement document or passport. Instead of being helped by their motherland, they were persecuted; left without jobs, cancer treatments, housing or made homeless. And in some cases they were even deported.
