F5 Righting Wrongs: Restoring the Rights of the Windrush

Generation

19 members

Mover: Pauline Pearce.

Summation: Roderick Lynch.

Conference deplores:

A. The official 'hostile environment' immigration policy of the

Conservative Government applied to the Windrush generation,

embedding institutional racism at the Home Office, which has

resulted in mass breaches by the UK Government of the British

Nationality Act 1948 and the Commonwealth Immigrants Act

1962 and which has led to the deportation of retirement-age

citizens with rights to live in the UK under the Immigration Act

1971.

B. The government's pursuit of exemptions for the Home Office

from transparency legislation such as GDPR (EU) 2016/679 and

the UK Freedom of Information Act 2000, in order to conceal the

extent of harm resultant from the 'hostile environment' policy.

C. The policy of forcing the NHS, private landlords and the DVLA to

act as quasi immigration police, resultant from the Home Office's

inability to manage immigration effectively.

D. The consequent application of aggregate immigration and

deportation targets - with staff bonuses for deportations -

which, encourage Home Office officials and contractors to make

decisions contrary to domestic and international law, breaching

UK regulations and published official guidance; even in cases

where it was known that claims to reside were valid.

Conference notes:

i) The failure of the Home Office to establish and implement a

rules-based legal, fair and just immigration system; leading to a

targets-driven approach and tabloid-focused gimmicks like 'go

home vans'.

ii) The negative effects of the government's 'hostile environment'

immigration policies on the economy and public services,

increasing the shortage of technical skills in industry and the

shortage of skills in the NHS.
