Darren votes for government to release Windrush scandal documents

The government have been trying to deport UK citizens. Members of the Windrush generation, who came to Britain from the Commonwealth before 1971 and were granted UK citizenship, have been threatened with deportation because they couldn’t find the right documents from when they moved to Britain.

What’s more, the government’s ‘hostile environment’ policy, designed to make life difficult for anyone even suspected of being an illegal immigrant, will have harmed the Windrush generation.

This is because it takes benefits, housing, NHS treatment and bank account access from anyone whom the Home Office thinks can’t find the right documents.

Darren voted for the release of government documents relating to the deportation of the Windrush generation. The government voted against this.

You can read the full motion below:

That an humble Address be presented to Her Majesty, that she will be graciously pleased to give directions that the following papers be provided to the Home Affairs Committee: all papers, correspondence and advice including emails and text messages, from 11 May 2010 up to and including 1 May 2018, to and between Ministers, senior officials and Special Advisers relating to policy decisions including on the Immigration Acts 2014 and 2016 with regard the Windrush generation cases, including deportations, detentions and refusal of re-entry, the setting of deportation and removal targets and their effect on the Windrush generation, and action taken within Government following the concerns raised by Caribbean Governments with the Foreign and Commonwealth Office including the original decision by the Prime Minister not to meet Caribbean Heads of Government and officials, and all copies of minutes and papers relating to the Cabinet’s Immigration Implementation Taskforce.
