In 1948 Caribbean immigrants from Jamaica, Tobago, Trinidad and other islands in the West Indies arrived at Tilbury Docks, Essex in Great Britain.
The welcome commonwealth citizens invited by the British government to fill the labour shortage disembarked the ship “Empire Windrush” hence the name Windrush Generation. Those who came to the UK from the West Indies between 1948 and 1971 became known as the Windrush Generation.
Many came as children on their parents’ passport. Since then many of them have worked hard, paid taxes, bought property, run businesses, had children and even grand children here. Suddenly many of them have been threatened with deportation, having been informed they are living here illegally.
This is due to a lack of official paperwork supporting their right to be here spite the fact, they were invited to come here as commonwealth citizens by our government and presented with opportunities to address the labour shortages and prosper.
In contrast to the shock many people of the Windrush Generation have received, more than 400 ‘British’ Jihadis fighting for ISIS have already returned to the UK. And according to reports, many have ‘disappeared’!
Maajid Nawaz, founder of counter Jihad, think tank Quilliam International, reported at least 85% of convicted grooming/ rape gang members are of Pakistani and/ or Bangladeshi origin (also from commonwealth countries).
Numerous perpetrators are in hiding, have escaped justice and a horrifying few were sentenced too leniently. Hundreds of thousands of pounds of taxpayers money were spent on the heinous leader of the Rochdale grooming gang Shabir Ahmed (aka ‘Daddy’), all because ‘Daddy’ dared to attempt to appeal his deportation to Pakistan.
There were thousands of cases involving grooming gangs in Rochdale, Rotherham, Telford and Bradford to name a few. Labour council authorities of those designated areas covered it up because allegations of racism petrified them.
Most peculiarly, Shabir Ahmed‘s official right to remain documents didn’t just disappear to assist with an instant, cost-effective deportation. Although the ‘Islamophobic’ race card would have still come into play.
Meanwhile long- standing non- muslims from the Caribbean, not known to be criminals have faced threats of deportation. It is because of the UK home office ‘meeting deportation targets’, subsequently leading to Amber Rudd’s resignation as home Secretary. She knew about the targets according to the leaked evidence published in The Guardian.
This is not to insinuate that no other foreign nationals are at risk from unfair deportation, nor should anyone be deported just because they are from Pakistan or a muslim.
The predicament here has opened the door to conspiracy theorists, and I can see Alex Jones on Infowars speculating on this topic, headlining; ‘UK Home Office advocating an Islamic takeover, as christians sent back to their ‘home countries’!’ And I wouldn’t blame him since he would only be saying what many people are already thinking, but dare not admit.
Where foreign criminals and Jihadis are concerned, on the 7th June 2016, the BBC reported that EU laws ‘prohibit the UK from sending foreign criminals home’. ‘It’s the freedom of movement within the EU, that has weakened the UK’s ability to remove foreign criminals from the country’ as quoted by Justice minister and Leave campaigner Dominic Raab.
On the 5th March 2018, The Telegraph reported hundreds of foreign criminals, including rapists and violent offenders are on the run. Because the government took too long to deport them, new figures suggest nearly 500 criminals awaiting removal from the UK served their time in prison and just disappeared.
I hope and pray justice will prevail and for us to have healthy, honest leadership, thoroughly capable of distinguishing between who belongs here and respects the laws of the land, and those who don’t! Furthermore, without any hesitation, we must exclude the jihadis and criminals once and for all!
