Grenfell Tower survivors could be deported in 12 months despite government immigration amnesty
You were in a fire so we’re going to deport you?
Theresa May has U-turned on a promise not to carry out immigration checks on Grenfell fire victims, leaving survivors who need help at risk of deportation if they come forward.
The Prime Minister pledged in Parliament not to use the tragedy as an excuse to check residents’ immigration status, but ministers confirmed anyone wanting help must register with Home Office officials and be subject to normal immigration rules after 12 months.
Ah, no. Illegal immigrants will get 12 months to continue to be illegal in. Can’t quite see what the basic demand is here. Illegals become not illegal because they’ve been in a fire?
