The Home Secretary has faced calls to resign over the treatment of the Windrush generation - named after the first ship that brought them to Britain from the West Indies in 1948. They were introduced when the current Prime Minister was Home Secretary. This was after Home Office documents showed that targets had been stipulated for voluntary removals of undocumented immigrants, The Guardian reported. And yet as it stands, no one's joining the dots on that.
Hang on. Why has Rudd failed to get a grip of such crucial Home Office policies that affect the lives of so many, and what's the difference between local and national targets? Rudd is known as a staunch pro-European and important ally the prime minister needs in Cabinet to balance the influence of Brexiter ministers, including Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson.
Voluntary deportation or departure refers to categories of removal where people are subject to enforced removal but may receive assistance from the authorities to leave.
Moreton previously wrote in Civil Service World that the "ability for the staff in Home Office's operational arm to exercise any discretion has been all but entirely removed" since structural changes made following the sacking of UK Border Force chief executive Brodie Clark in 2011.
But Rudd today insisted that she was the best person to put the situation right: "I do take seriously my responsibility but I do think I am the person who can put it right".
Labour and SNP MPs urged both Amber Rudd and Theresa May to resign over their handling of the Windrush crisis.
Asked if the Prime Minister retained full confidence in Amber Rudd, despite the ongoing controversies over Windrush and immigration removal targets, the spokesman said: "Yes".
In response to an urgent question from Labour in the House of Commons on Thursday, she said she did not know about the targets.
Lucy Moreton, general secretary of the Immigration Service Union, had told the MPs a national target, broken down regionally, had been set to remove people in the United Kingdom illegally, and staff were under "increasing pressure". "But if they were used inappropriately, then I am clear that this will have to change".
Rudd did not answer these questions, but defended the home office's policy, saying: "Once again the honourable lady is confusing the difference between legal and illegal migrants and I do not think she like any other member of this house would want the United Kingdom to be a home for illegal migrants".
