Individuals tweeted that these actions clearly demonstrate institutional racism and a racist government made up of racist ministers that would permit Braverman to ditch the Windrush pledges as she intends.

Member of parliament for the Green Party Caroline Lucas, also shared the article and commented on how the difficult conditions for migrants in the UK “ seems to be getting *even worse*. Lucas stated “ it appears that the hostile environment towards migrant is here to stay . Migrants’ commissioner dropped, independent border inspector pow
ers abandoned, post-Windrush reform downgraded”. She emphasis that action must be taken as “Suella Braverman cannot be allowed to get away with doing this”.

India Willoughby, a broadcaster, expressed her displeasure with the government in a tweet because it enabled for this to occur by giving Braverman the authority to do such despicable things.

A Guardian report said Suella Braverman plans to drop the pledge to create a post of migrants’ commissioner. This post would speak up for migrants and identify systemic problems within the UK immigration system. Furthermore, they are abandoning promises to expand the authority of the independent chief inspector of borders and immigration (ICIBI).
Despite several recommendations still needing to be fulfilled, a formal announcement will be made next week revealing that 28 of the 30 recommendations are being formally “closed”.
