    Absolutely.

    As I said in the recent Brexit thread, it's hard to understand what this is supposed to achieve. It's just spiteful and is making them look like cunts and idiots, to the point where I wonder if it's just an exercise in seeing what they can get away with while Labour are in disarray and with Trump and Syria dominating the headlines.

    Theresa May’s attempt to get a grip on the Windrush crisis descended into chaos on Wednesday after two major announcements she made on the subject were immediately called into question.

    In a day of confusion over the treatment of Windrush-era arrivals unfairly targeted over their immigration status, May promised that Albert Thompson, a London man denied free NHS cancer treatment despite living in the UK for 44 years, would now get the care he needed.

    However, his lawyers said they had not been contacted to be told of any policy change, while Thompson – whose case was first exposed by the Guardian – also complained about being left in the dark.

    Separately, an effort by May to blame Labour for a controversial decision to destroy landing card slips recording people’s arrival dates rebounded after it emerged that one of the decisions to implement the policy took place in 2010, when she was home secretary.

    ok well done we helped the cuddly windrush people,
    now do this https://www.crowdjustice.com/case/ch...eration-nexus/

    Operation Nexus, a little-known arrangement between the police and Home Office, is changing the UK’s approach to deportation.

    It was supposed to be aimed at ‘high harm’ foreign offenders. But the Home Office has cast its net far wider than that to include people with minor convictions, even if they are old or spent, as well as people who have had encounters with the police which fell short of conviction (such as an acquittal).There is no definition of 'high harm'. In 2014 the government admitted it had left it up to individual police forces to determine who came under its scope.

    Why it is so important?

    Operation Nexus, first launched in London in 2012, is part of creating what Theresa May, as home secretary, has called a ‘hostile environment’ towards ‘illegal’ or undesired migrants including EU nationals. Since 2012 over 3000 people have been removed.

    The purpose of gathering the information is not to conduct a criminal investigation but to identify individuals, even if they have committed no criminal offence, who could be deported.

    More widely, Nexus also seems to give the police the power to carry out checks, even where there is no reasonable suspicion of a criminal offence being committed. This should alarm us all.
