New home secretary #Javid opposes 'hostile environment' approach to immigration

Sajid Javid named Britain's new Home Secretary as Amber Rudd resigns

"If you look at what we're doing as a government, and have been doing over the years as a government, what we are doing is responding to the need that people see for a government to deal with illegal immigration", she said.

Asked if Mrs May allowed Ms Rudd "to fall on her sword" to protect herself, she replied: "Amber resigned because of information that she had given to Parliament which proved to be inaccurate".

Downing Street released a statement around 10pm on Sunday confirming that Theresa May had accepted Rudd's resignation.

She is the fifth departure from Prime Minister Theresa May's Cabinet.

The following day, she told the committee immigration officers did have quotas, but that she was not aware of them.

In her resignation letter, Rudd admitted that sometimes people with a legal right to be in Britain had not been treated "fairly and humanely".

A rapid riser in the government, Javid's first task was to answer an urgent question in parliament amid continued fallout from the so-called Windrush scandal - erroneous moves to deport legal but undocumented elderly immigrants from the Caribbean.

Ohtani is 2-1 with a 4.43 ERA in four starts as a pitcher for the Angels. "We don't know yet", Scioscia said of his start. Roberts said he felt Bellinger should've tried for a triple on a ball he hit into the alley at San Francisco.

Home Secretary Sajid Javid said he would do "whatever it takes" to resolve the status of all those who have become innocent casualties of the Conservative government's tough immigration policies.

Javid is the son of a Pakistani bus driver who had arrived in Britain in 1961 with one pound in his pocket.

"I don't like the phrase hostile", Javid said. "He is wrong and I refuse to let it go and say nothing". Rudd became the fourth person forced to resign from the UK Cabinet in the last six months - following former defence minister Sir Michael Fallon, former global development minister Priti Patel and May's deputy Damian Green. It's also notoriously known as something of a political minefield - May's six-year survival there being an exception.

Those affected are known as the "Windrush generation" after the ship Empire Windrush, which in 1948 brought hundreds of Caribbean immigrants to a Britain seeking nurses, railway workers and others to help it rebuild after the devastation of World War II.

The government has apologised to Windrush migrants and their families, promised citizenship and compensation to those affected, including to people who have lost their jobs and been threatened with deportation because of the errors.

He was the first member of Britain's South Asian minority to be given a full-time post in the cabinet when he was appointed culture minister in 2014.

"That's why I am so personally committed to and invested in resolving the difficulties faced by the people of the Windrush generation who have built their lives here and contributed so much". Even May's own Tories said the shabby treatment of the Windrush community was an affront to a British sense of decency and fair play. However the United Kingdom government did not keep a record of numerous migrants.
