Jeremy Corbyn calls for Amber Rudd to resign over Windrush scandal

Racists—Amber Rudd and Theresa May

The simmering tension between the pair comes as Amber Rudd, Mrs May's successor at the Home Office, prepares to face tough questioning from MPs on the Home Affairs Select Committee over Windrush.

After noting that May had quoted her on immigration previously, Cooper said: "Let me say to the PM, do not try to hide behind me or the Labour Party because she was warned repeatedly of the damage her obsession with her net migration target was doing".

Long-term residents who arrived in the decades after the Second World War have had their immigration status challenged despite being in the country legally.

The issue "was covered by newspapers, and MPs bringing it forward anecdotally over the past three or four months, and I became aware that there was a potential issue", she told parliament's home affairs committee, according to the Guardian.

"Nobody's trying to blame anybody else", she said.

After then being forced to sit through a question from Conservative Andrea Jenkyns, who took her husband Ed Balls' seat in Morley, she finally caught the Speaker's eye and did not disappoint.

"Over the years, there have been individual cases of people who have had to regularise their documentation and have done so".

McKayla Maroney says Larry Nassar manipulated her with food
She produced a February, 2017 piece on USA Gymnastics for the CBS newsmagazine, which is a finalist for a Peabody Award. Per ESPN.com, the Karolyis are listed as defendants in multiple civil lawsuits against Nassar and USA Gymnastics.

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.

"Up and down this country people want to ensure that the Government is taking action against those people who are here in this country illegally", she said.

The Windrush generation, named after one of the first ships that arrived from Jamaica in 1948, are citizens of the United Kingdom and colonies, a type of citizenship conferred by the British Nationality Act of 1948.

She acknowledged that she had asked for more removals of individuals with no right to be in the United Kingdom to take place, but was not familiar with suggestions that regional targets were in place.

Under the Government's plans, thousands of people will be offered the chance to obtain British citizenship free of charge and without the requirement to take language tests.

"These policies swept up British citizens and legal migrants causing them huge suffering, as she was warned", he told MPs.

May responded by saying Rudd would "set out the details of that compensation scheme in due course".
