  • Windrush scandal: were 63 wrongly deported?

She had previously insisted she was not aware of any Windrush citizen being wrongly deported.

SCORES of people are feared to have been wrongly removed or deported because of the Windrush scandal, home secretary Sajid Javid admitted yesterday.

Mr Javid told the Home Affairs Select Committee that the exercise has so far found 63 people who may have arrived in the United Kingdom from the Caribbean before 1973 and have been removed or deported.

He said the figures were provisional.

Javid said the Home Office had identified cases where people were removed who may have come to the United Kingdom legally from the Caribbean.

It was the first time specific numbers have been outlined since the scandal involving people who came to the United Kingdom from Commonwealth nations broke.

He said: "I've asked officials to be absolutely certain and thorough and check over every record and make sure".

But the opposition Labor party and other critics have argued that the Windrush crisis was a outcome of an anti-immigrant climate at the Home Office which they said dated back to Prime Minister Theresa May's six years as home secretary between 2010 and 2016.

From that number, over 4,482 individuals have been referred to Home Office caseworkers, resulting in over 1,482 appointments being booked.

However, he said he did not yet have data on how many Windrush immigrants had been detained.

He pinned the blame on Theresa May's vow as Home Secretary to create a "hostile environment" for illegal immigrants.

The investigation was part of efforts to tackle the scandal of people arriving legally before 1973 who more recently have been told to leave or been denied jobs, healthcare and homes because they do not have documents proving their right to live in Britain.

The London mayor Sadiq Khan said he was shocked by the potential number of erroneous deportations. "Govt [sic] must urgently provide answers on exactly how many have been affected, and what action is being taken to right this wrong".
