Amber Rudd grilled by MPs over Windrush scandal

She said she "bitterly regrets" not seeing the individual cases as a "systemic issue".

The Windrush cases - which include anyone who moved to the United Kingdom from a Commonwealth country before 1973 - are in the United Kingdom legally but some have been threatened with deportation if they did not have paperwork to prove it.

Why, also, does the compensation offered by the aforementioned Ms Rudd only appear to extend to the cost of Windrush citizens applying to reaffirm their residency rights - and not the very obvious distress caused to them?

The issue has created anger in Britain after it was revealed some of these migrants have been made homeless, lost their jobs, threatened with deportation and denied benefits, raising awkward questions about how the pursuit of lower immigration sits alongside the desire to be an outward-looking global economy.

Rice said the current structure "breeds cynicism and contempt" and that no one the commission interviewed supports the status quo. The commission also "punted" on the issue of allowing athletes to profit off their names, images and likenesses, Ridpath said.

The Home Office has launched a major review to check whether anyone has been incorrectly deported.

Ms Rudd will appear before the Home Affairs Select Committee from 3.30pm.

But she said a distinction should be drawn between those people who had settled in the United Kingdom legally and contributed to British life and those with no right to be in the UK.

The Home Secretary, Amber Rudd, said she was unaware of claims border staff were set "internal enforcement targets" - soon after her department's chief immigration official also insisted the targets did not exist.

However, Roberge was actually encouraged to use Instagram so she would get tons of likes and act as a decoy. Roberge's fellow smuggler, Lagacé, was sentenced back in November to seven years in prison.

In April 2016, the then Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond - who is now the chancellor - was told by Caribbean ministers about immigrants facing deportation despite having lived in the United Kingdom for most of their lives, and the BBC understands a report about their concerns was passed to the Home Office, which was led at the time by Mrs May.

Asked if she had told May to ditch the target, Rudd said: "I have not discussed that with the prime minister". The problem here is that people were not properly documented'.

"I didn't hear the testimony and I'm not sure what shape that might be in, but if you ask me 'are there numbers of people we expect to be removed?', that's not how we operate".

Sensing an opportunity to make political hay less than a week before crucial local elections, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, repeated his call for Rudd to resign over her handling of the crisis.
