Grenfell survivors are clear: A full immigration amnesty is needed

14 Jul 2017
“This testimony was from a survivor was moving and very brave.

“She was very clear. The Government’s offer of a 12-month immigration reprieve is completely inadequate. Despite all they have gone through, it could still result in deportation.

“Labour is very clear. We continue to argue for a full immigration amnesty for survivors and indefinite leave to remain, which is in the gift of the Home Secretary. Otherwise survivors and their families may never come forward to get the support they need.

“The Government has already failed Grenfell residents in so many ways. It should do the decent thing and remove the threat of deportation hanging over a small number of deeply traumatised people.”
