Amber Rudd faces fresh calls to resign over migrant…

It is a significant promotion for Javid, who was previously the Secretary of State for Communities, Local Government and Housing. The British government says they will be allowed to stay.

Interior Minister Amber Rudd, who resigned on Sunday after facing mounting pressure over the crisis, said last Monday that those who arrived from the Caribbean and other Commonwealth countries before 1973, wrongly targeted over their immigration status, will be eligible for free citizenship.

Ms Rudd denied on Wednesday that targets were used as she was quizzed by a Commons committee probing the Windrush scandal.

Rudd became the fourth person forced to resign from the UK Cabinet in the last six months - following former defence minister Sir Michael Fallon, former global development minister Priti Patel and May's deputy Damian Green.

He said he would be looking at Home Office immigration policy to make sure it is fair.

The issue of removals targets was raised as part of the Home Affairs Committee's inquiry into the Windrush children, who came to the United Kingdom legally in the 1950s and 1960s but have since been threatened with deportation or denied access to public services because of uncertainty about their immigration status. Some of those in the Windrush generation, unable to produce the necessary paperwork, were caught in the net.

"When I heard about the Windrush issue I thought, 'That could be my mum... it could be my dad... it could be my uncle... it could be me", he added.

For two decades starting in the late 1940s, the United Kingdom accepted migrants from across the Empire (later, the Commonwealth) to rebuild after World War II.

But Jeremy Corbyn insisted Mrs May had "questions to answer" about her time in the Home Office following the resignation of her "human shield" Amber Rudd.

There are no such estimates available for illegal immigrants from India but another recent study by Oxford University's The Migration Observatory has said that 6,580 Indian were deported in 2016, the top country of enforced removals or voluntary departures from Britain.

Sajid Javid said his parents came to the United Kingdom from the Commonwealth in the 1960s, and he was "personally committed, and invested, in resolving the difficulties faced by the people of the Windrush generation".

Losing a Home Secretary to a scandal-linked resignation is never a good look for a Government.

In April 2014, Javid was appointed Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport under then-Premier David Cameron. With Rudd gone, the opposition can shift its focus to the prime minister, though the absence of an obvious successor capable of steering the divided Conservative parliamentary party through the Brexit talks will protect her in the short term at least.

"Clearly there were targets, and Amber Rudd was aware of them", said Labour's spokesperson on home affairs, Dianne Abbott, who called on the government to change its "hostile environment" policies that had created the context of the crisis, pointing to May, who had preceded Rudd as home minister, and had been responsible for putting together the tougher immigration regime now under scrutiny.
