Board of Deputies ‘concern’ at treatment of Windrush migrants

Board of Deputies of British Jews Senior Vice President Richard Verber has expressed concern over the treatment of migrants who arrived from the Commonwealth as children in the 1950s and who may now face deportation.

He said: “Like other migrant communities, Jews know what it is like to be treated as the ‘other’. Therefore we are concerned at reports that migrants who arrived from the Commonwealth as children many decades ago, may now face deportation. The Windrush generation have contributed a great deal to Britain. We call on the Government to swiftly secure the future of this community, which is undoubtedly part of the fabric of our nation.”
