Rudd is sounding much tougher today, moving the debate firmly to illegal immigration But it's so critical to remember that #windrush is nothing to do with illegal immigration

This issue of removal targets reminds me of how the DWP always denied they had targets for benefit sanctions while Jobcentre staff said that they did. #bbcnews #Commons #AmberRudd #Windrush

Amber Rudd a) Knowingly misled Parliament in her #Windrush address b) Knowingly misled the Home Affairs Select Committee when questioned about her Departments response to #Windrush c) As Home Secretary, is willfully unaware of what's happening in the Home Office

so no question Amber Rudd misled the Home Affairs committee. With each passing day increasingly hard to see how she can cling on as Home Secretary. #targets #Windrush #r4today

This young woman asylum seeker from the Congo is studying health and social care. She's been told she can't sit her 'A' levels. Makes me ashamed to be British #Windrush #homeoffice

Amber Rudd denied that the Home Office has deportation targets, yet documents have emerged proving her wrong. Either she's woefully incompetent or wilfully misleading parliament. Either one of these scenarios warrant her immediate resignation. #Windrush

When Amber Rudd ordered a cover-up of the Muslim #GroomingGangs scandal in #Telford, not one call from the mainstream media for her resignation. But on the #Windrush saga, every day the media is calling for Rudd's resignation. Whites are hated by the biased media... #FreeSpeech

Rudd & Home Affairs S.C. Excellent summation by @YvetteCooperMP exposing the mess at Home Office under the aegis of @AmberRuddHR & her predecessor @Theresa_May. It is becoming evident that #Windrush Scandal might just be the tip of the iceberg! Who is responsible? #Windrush -9
