United Kingdom apologises to Caribbeans threatened with deportation

United Kingdom apologises to Caribbeans threatened with deportation

Pressed over the years-long clampdown on illegal immigration by the Conservative-led government, she also admitted that her department could "sometimes lose sight of the individual".However, she said she did not believe anyone had actually been deported, although there have been media reports of people who were only saved by the last-minute intervention of lawyers.

Mrs May's ministers have spent much of their time since the 2016 exit vote touring the globe, touting Britain's ability to negotiate its own trade deals with countries including Commonwealth states such as Australia, India, and New Zealand as one of the main benefits of life outside the EU.

Last month, as Gibraltar marked Commonwealth Day by temporarily raising the Commonwealth flag to replace the European Union flag, deputy Chief Minister Dr Joseph Garcia said: "Hoisting the flag of the Commonwealth is a symbol of our commitment to the values and the traditions that the organisation represents".

Michael Braithwaite, who moved to the United Kingdom from Barbados when he was nine, was let go from his 15-year job as a special needs teaching assistant after his employers ruled he was an illegal immigrant. This is a mammoth task which will require the Government to work quickly.

Home Secretary Ms Rudd confirmed new measures to the House of Commons to help the Windrush generation.

"We have seen the individual stories, and they have been, some of them, bad to hear, and that is why I have acted", Rudd said.

May said, "the Windrush generation helped to build the country that we are today".

"We have no information, we do not know of any cases where somebody has been deported who is in this category", Lidington told BBC radio, but added officials were checking records to make sure nothing had "gone appallingly wrong in that way". She said: "There have been some horrendous situations, which as a minister have appalled me".

Prime Minister Theresa May will seek to reassure Caribbean leaders later that the Windrush generation will not be deported over paperwork issues.

Speaking as leaders of the 53 Commonwealth nations met in London, May said she "deeply" regretted the UK's role in fuelling "discrimination, violence and even death" as nobody should be persecuted for "who they are or who they love".
