GETTYRudd's decision to stand down will come as a major blow to Mrs May

Prime Minister Theresa May, a former interior minister who once led efforts to tackle illegal immigration, appointed a new Home Secretary this week to try to draw a line under the scandal that has threatened her authority as she negotiates Brexit.

There are two lessons to learn from Mr. Javid's appointment: The fight against an unjust immigration system does not change with a new home secretary, and if we remain satisfied with representation as the sole means of progress, diversity becomes a shield for a government's institutionally racist policies.

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.

In a letter to the Prime Minister, Ms. Rudd acknowledged she had "inadvertently misled" MPs on a parliamentary committee when testifying last week that she had not been aware of departmental targets for the deportation of illegal migrants.

The Prime Minister's official spokesman defended the Tier 2 visa regime and stressed it was always closely monitored. The most urgent task I have is to help those British citizens who came from the Caribbean, the Windrush generation, and make sure they are all treated with the decency and fairness they deserve.

Many may have had documentation to demonstrate their status and therefore not face the difficulties of the Windrush generation.

"When I heard about the Windrush issue I thought, 'That could be my mum.it could be my dad.it could be my uncle.it could be me'". Javid's appointment is widely seen as a way for May to curtail the backlash from the Windrush scandal, which brought to light the unfair treatment of Commonwealth citizens from Jamaica over a lack of citizenship documentation.

Writing in the Telegraph in 2016, Javid said he was a "Eurosceptic and proud of it".

Yesterday he was already snapped in the identical energy stance as David Cameron and his outdated mentor, George Osborne.

What is the Windrush scandal?

This is the fifth governmental resignation since last May's general election, adding to the tumult at the heart of government with less than a year to Brexit and weeks before talks on Britain's involvement in the EU customs union are set to take place.
