Labour leader adds to pressure on PM by taking aim at her ‘hostile environment’ policies
Jeremy Corbyn is to accuse Theresa May of being personally responsible for the Windrush generation controversy by setting a deliberately unreachable bar with her “hostile environment” immigration policies. The Labour leader will tell the party’s Welsh conference on Sunday that “lives have been ripped apart” by the crackdown.
Separately, Labour MP David Lammy has called May’s apology to the Windrush generation “crocodile tears” and said the government ignored warnings in 2014 about the impact of her immigration policy. The Windrush generation’s suffering was first revealed by the Guardian, whose reporter, Amelia Gentleman, has been writing about individual cases for six months.
