EHRC respond to the Windrush review
David Isaac, Chair of the Equality and Human Rights Commission, has responded to the Windrush Review.
The Windrush scandal exposed deep flaws in the UK’s immigration system, and inflicted lasting damage on the lives of many British citizens.
This independent review underlines many of our serious and long-standing concerns about the impact of the Government’s hostile environment policies on some groups.
These are highly significant findings and we will be using our legal powers so this does not happen again.
All public bodies, including the Home Office, have a legal duty to consider rigorously how their actions will impact on the lives and rights of people affected by them.
