Amber Rudd leaves government

She then apologised on Friday for saying she had not been aware of specific targets for the removal of illegal immigrants.

Britain's Home Secretary Amber Rudd leaves 10 Downing Street in London.

Speaking in a Westminster Hall debate he said: "This not about illegal immigration".

A Labour spokeswoman said: "If the architect of this cruel farce, the prime minister, is ordering her MPs to vote to keep her role in this mess hidden from the public, it exposes the Tories' crocodile tears on the Windrush scandal as a sham".

The following day, she told the committee immigration officers did have quotas, but that she was not aware of them. "He is wrong and I refuse to let it go and say nothing".

The new home secretary, appointed after Rudd resigned over Windrush on Sunday, again promised a change in tone from the "hostile environment" approach, but was repeatedly challenged on whether this would amount to any real shift in approach. The first was the prime minister's own exposure to the fallout. We will do right by the Windrush generation'. However the United Kingdom government did not keep a record of numerous migrants. But the Windrush pensioners struck a nerve.

Trump orders military to prepare options for possible Korean troop drawdown
Expectations have grown that North Korea would soon release the three ahead of the unprecedented summit in the coming weeks. In the past, Trump has questioned the need to keep more than 28,000 USA troops stationed in South Korea.

Shadow home secretary Diane Abbot added: "All roads lead back to Theresa May and her tenure as Home Secretary".

"Amber Rudd has been a human shield for Theresa May - and now she has gone".

The dramatic exit of close ally Rudd came as a setback for May, whose centre-right Conservative Party faces potentially bruising local authority elections across metropolitan England on Thursday.

As such, Mrs May needs to remind her Ministers of the country's expectations - and priorities - when it comes to day-to-day competence while, at the same time, offering a full response to the electorate's understandable outrage over Windrush.

It's unclear if Rudd's ouster will satisfy government critics.

The Prime Minister defended targets for the removal of illegal immigrants as she confirmed the practice was in place when she was home secretary.

"Detailed policy guidance and amendments to existing secondary legislation, where necessary, will be brought forward as soon as possible - and in some areas, we will want to consult with the communities affected first to ensure it best meets their needs", the spokesman said.

"This is very much a government that built their approach to immigration on the idea that there is no such thing as a policy that is too anti-immigration".

Brexiteers didn't shed tears over Rudd's departure.

A Thatcherite and supporter of free markets, he had a history of euroscepticism but came out against Brexit in the 2016 referendum on leaving the European Union.

He is not particularly an ardent Remainer - although his appointment retains the balance on the vital Brexit cabinet committee. Javid was also a remainer, but a tepid one, at least publicly.

"These deportations are going to keep happening, because the way the law is framed at the moment is by defining the Windrush generation exclusively by the Immigration Act of 1971, which is an explicitly racist piece of legislation meant to stop coloured people coming into the United Kingdom..."

Sterling, picked out by Jesus, made a fine run and pin-point pass that allowed the Brazilian to steer home from close-range. And in his first appearance against his former club, the Chilean was heavily involved in the opening goal on 16 minutes.

He told the Telegraph: "I thought that could be my mum.my dad.my uncle.it could be me". His parents moved to Britain from Pakistan in the 1960s and he said the Windrush crisis hit home for him.
