UK – Amber Rudd resigns as Home Secretary over Windrush scandal

0 minute read.

UK Home Secretary Amber Rudd, who was due to make a statement in Parliament on Monday, resigned under growing pressure to quit over the Windrush scandal.

A statement from Downing Street said Theresa May had accepted the home secretary’s resignation.

She has faced criticism over the existence of Home Office removals targets and her knowledge of them.

It was the beleaguered Rudd’s insistence that she knew nothing of Home Office targets for immigration removals, which was later undermined by documents, including a letter she had written to Downing Street and leaked to the Guardian, that drew the most criticism.
