    Windrush generation: Jamaica's PM urges 'speedy resolution'

    Windrush generation: Jamaica's PM urges 'speedy resolution'

    Jamaica's prime minister has welcomed Theresa May's commitment to ensure the Windrush generation will not be deported over paperwork issues.

    Andrew Holness told Mrs May he looked forward to "a speedy implementation of your proposed solution".

    He said it was "only fair" that people who had "significantly contributed" to the UK should be allowed to "take their place" as citizens.

    Mrs May is meeting Commonwealth leaders later to discuss her proposals.

    The UK government has apologised after it emerged that some people who arrived from the Commonwealth decades ago as children were now being incorrectly identified as illegal immigrants.

    Read about this whole scandalous story from The BBC HERE




    It seems totally ridiculous that the people who were welcomed entry to Britain from The Empire Windrush ship on the 22 June 1948, are now being deported because their paperwork is not in order.

    I hope that this is sorted out quickly and that these people, and their descendants, are given automatic citizenship.

    It is totally outrageous that this is just coming up now.

    The major dirty deal was done when the Home Office destroyed the disembarkment cards for these people.

    Yes, as that was virtually all the paperwork they had at that time to prove who they were and where they had come from.

    It is totally ridiculous that this government are now trying to deport people who's descendants came to Britain in 1948.

    According to the latest news, the government are now going to pay compensation to the people who were effected by this cruel policy.

    A bit too little and too late.

    They have been shamed into doing this as the Windrush Generation is now a blot on the reputation of the Tories.

    They still haven't stopped. Two people a friend of mine attended school with are in imminent danger of being deported to Jamaica, as I heard only this morning. they have been here since 1971

    Amber Rudd, the Home Secretary has eventually resigned from the post.

    I wonder if the previous Home Secretary, Theresa May, will do the same ?
