Sajid Javid, son of Pakistani bus driver, appointed UK's new Home Secretary

Sajid Javid, son of Pakistani bus driver, appointed UK's new Home Secretary

A spokesman for Mrs May said Mr Javid, who had been minister for housing, communities and local government, "is one of the most experienced ministers around the cabinet table".

Javid - who backed the Remain campaign, but has since said his "heart" was for Brexit and spoken out against customs union membership - will immediately be tasked with sorting out the Windrush scandal, ensuring that migrants are able to obtain their United Kingdom citizenship as well as establishing a compensation scheme for those who have been affected.

"Another leak Sunday showed Rudd wrote a letter to Prime Minister Theresa May outlining an "ambitious but deliverable" plan to increase deportations by 10 percent".

Outrage at their treatment has piled pressure on May, who was home secretary between 2010 and 2016 and introduced tough immigration policies meant to make Britain a "hostile environment" for unauthorized migrants.

Asked if Mrs May allowed Ms Rudd "to fall on her sword" to protect herself, she replied: "Amber resigned because of information that she had given to Parliament which proved to be inaccurate".

Rory McIlroy clears the air over US Open and Open Championship comments
One of the game's streakiest players, he plays his best when he's front-running. "It was more the quiet moments", McIlroy said. And I thought Patrick (Reed ) did a fantastic job on Sunday holding it together because he didn't have his best stuff.

Their erroneous targeting stemmed from a "hostile environment" immigration policy pioneered by May when she was interior minister between 2010 and 2016, and then continued by Rudd.

He added: "I am calling for legal guarantees in three areas: "compensation, burden of proof required by the Home Office Commonwealth taskforce assessing cases and promises about immigration enforcement".

"When I heard about the Windrush issue, I thought that could've been my mum, dad, uncle or me". But at the same time, ultimately believed "that Britain is better off in (the EU)".

He joined Deutsche Bank as director in 2000 and in 2004, he was appointed the managing director. He was Business Secretary in the previous government of David Cameron.

"They came to this country after the Second World War to help rebuild it..." Others have been told by the government that they are in Britain illegally and must leave.

The MP for Hastings on England's south coast, who had led the Home Office since 2016, was seen as a moderate on the European Union and a balancing force in a cabinet made up of several big-name pro-Brexit figures, such as Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson and Environment Secretary Michael Gove.

Some were denied access to work and healthcare, detained and threatened with deportation.

May apologized to Caribbean leaders for any "anxiety" caused by the records destruction, which occurred when she was Home Secretary under the previous administration. He promised to put his own "stamp" on the department and came out fighting - telling Labour's shadow home secretary Diane Abbott she did not "have a monopoly" on anger over the treatment of migrants.

Miss Rudd resigned after "inadvertantly misled" MPs over targets for deporting illegal immigrants.
