The horrific shambles surrounding the migration status of the ‘Windrush generation’ of Brits who came to the UK decades ago has taken another soar turn, with Immigration Minister Caroline Nokes admitting that some Brits may have been deported in error.
Channel 4 News asked Nokes: “How many people, I’m sure you do have these records, who came here pre-1973 from the Commonwealth, have been deported, say to the Caribbean?”
To which she replied: “What I know is that individual cases are heartbreaking and it’s really important to me that going forward we get this right.”
When pressed specifically: “But people have been deported to the Caribbean, in error potentially?”
The Minister said: “Potentially they have been, and I’m very conscious that it’s very much in error and that’s an error I want to put right.”
