Of course a lot of people would say. But we asked people from the West Indies to come over and help rebuild the country after WW". At that time anyone from the Empire/Commonwealth could come and settle here permanently.
So they did not have to fill out forms or become a British citizen.
Now after years of living here legally they are being told prove you are not here illegally. Not all of them can prove they came here legally as they were children at the time. They have no proof they are not illegal immigrants.
For years they have worked for the good of the country as well as themselves and their family, paid all their taxes just like the rest of us who were born here.
Now these people are going to be deported to a country they have not lived in for many, many years because they cannot prove they came here legally.
If I read this in a novel I would say "thankfully that could not happen in the real world" but sadly it is happening. And I hang my head in shame.
