UK TREND : Twitter users once more criticise Braverman
The home secretary Suella Braverman claimed it was “not racist” to want to control borders while speaking at a conference in London.
Suella Braverman issued a warning to cabinet members who were opposing proposals to reduce numbers, saying that the government must reduce immigration before the next election because Britain has grown too “dependent” on foreign labour.
UK TREND: Suella Braverman’s speech ignites Twitter
Following her speech, the hashtags #Suellla Braverman and #Home Secretary have been trending on twitter. People have been expressing their shock and outrage following her comments.
“Braverman began with her parents having been hard-working immigrants. Exactly the sort of people she is now committed to keeping out. They would have been astonished that their daughter had become AG and home secretary. Not nearly as astonished as us.” https://t.co/gMXNxve8GU

People were furious over the statements she made in her speech at the National Conservatism conference. They tweeted that “ she is not just a hypocrite for demonising immigrants as a child of immigrants. Worse, she’s wicked to use her birth as a child of Indian immigrants & position as Home secretary to legitimise dehumanisation of immigrants & use their lives for political gain”. The public have labelled her as “ an evil con”.

Individuals concluded from her “ shocking speech, that her agenda is nothing to do with ‘illegal’ immigration. But she is now talking about all immigrants, including her own family!”
The Home Secretary’s agenda today is nothing to do with “Illegal” immigration.
She is now talking about ALL IMMIGRANTS, including her own family!

Many also mocked her as much of her speech was focused on “ what the Home Secretary should be doing to solve current issues, as if she is not the Home Secretary of the UK herself ”.
