Pak-origin MP Sajid Javid appointed new United Kingdom home secretary

Ms Rudd told MPs last week the Home Office did not have targets for removing illegal immigrants, but on Sunday The Guardian published a letter in which Ms Rudd set out her "ambitious but deliverable" aim to deport 10% more illegal immigrants over the "next few years" to Theresa May.

She resigned following a series of Home Office leaks to the Guardian, which revealed that information had been provided to her office about the targets.

Britain has accepted the resignation of Home Secretary Amber Rudd amid countrywide outrage over authorities' mistreatment of long-term legal residents from the Caribbean.

Measures to crack down on illegal immigration have come under sharp focus and calls for the policy to be abandoned are unlikely to subside after Ms Rudd's resignation.

Outrage over the plight of the migrants - some of whom lost jobs and fell into debt as they struggled to prove their status - led to a personal apology from Mrs May, now Prime Minister, to Caribbean leaders at the Commonwealth summit in London last month.

Labour says the prime minister has "questions to answer" about her own time at the Home Office.

The home secretary, who was appointed on Monday morning after Amber Rudd stood down, told MPs it "should never have been the case" that immigrants from across the Commonwealth faced problems proving their status. "I should have been aware of this, and I take full responsibility for the fact that I was not". "He will be judged not on the statements he makes this afternoon, but by what he does to make the situation right and get justice for them", she said.

"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.

Indians who migrated to the United Kingdom as Commonwealth citizens before 1971 are estimated as the second-largest nationality after Jamaicans, the group caught up in the ongoing Windrush scandal that has shaken up the United Kingdom government in recent weeks.

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

"The Windrush scandal has rightly shone a light on an important issue for our country", Rudd said in a resignation letter to May. "And actually, it turns out there is", he added. Rudd, once seen as a leading candidate for the Conservative Party leadership, was a prominent voice during the June 2016 referendum over Britain's future in the European Union. He is not particularly an ardent Remainer - although his appointment retains the balance on the vital Brexit cabinet committee.

"That will be one of my most urgent tasks, to make sure we look carefully at the policy and make sure it achieves just that".

The Windrush generation settled legally in post-war Britain and automatically won the right to remain in the UK. "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.
