Sajid Javid appointed home secretary after Amber Rudd resigns

Amber Rudd is thought to have been backing Mrs May ahead of a crunch showdown on the customs union in the Brexit'war Cabinet sub-committee

He added: "We are going to have a strategy in place that does something the previous Home Secretary set out last week, about making sure we have an immigration policy that is fair, it treats people with respect and with decency".

Labour MP Barry Gardiner said it would be a "mistake" if Mr Javid did not abandon the government's targets on removing illegal immigrants.

SAJID JAVID insisted he was the right choice to sort out the Windrush scandal after replacing Amber Rudd as home secretary yesterday.

British Prime Minister Theresa May on Monday appointed the first ethnic-minority politician to the key post of home secretary, as the government struggled to contain a scandal over the mistreatment of long-term residents from the Caribbean.

"If you talk to members of the public they want to ensure that we are dealing with people who are here illegally", she said.

British Prime Minister Theresa May is still under pressure despite the announcement of details of a mini reshuffle by the government on Monday.

A South Asian will head Britain's Home Office for the first time as the government sought to contain an escalating crisis over its treatment of Commonwealth citizens and its tough immigration regime more widely. It immediately impacted me.

Javid already sought to distance himself from the Home Office fiasco in a highly-personal Sunday Telegraph interview published over the weekend.

Invited to Britain to help it rebuild after World War II, they were given a legal right to remain by a 1971 law.

"When I heard about the Windrush issue I thought, 'That could be my could be my could be my could be me'".

James Brokenshire - who stepped back from his role as Northern Ireland secretary while he received treatment for cancer - will replace Javid at the Ministry for Housing, Communities and Local Government, while worldwide development secretary Penny Mordaunt will take on the women and equalities brief vacated by Rudd.

WATCH: What is the Windrush scandal and why has Amber Rudd resigned?

Now they are at risk of deportation, as they have no documents proving their status in the UK.

Javid, the first home secretary from an ethnic minority background, now faces a challenge to rebuild the reputation of a department tarnished by the so-called Windrush scandal, in which people arriving in the United Kingdom from Caribbean countries between 1948 and 1971 were subsequently threatened with deportation.

The government has apologized for the fiasco, promised citizenship and compensation to those affected, including to people who have lost their jobs, been threatened with deportation and denied benefits because of the errors.
