They were persons from the Caribbean who were invited to the UK by the British government. Fast forward to 2018, and many of these folks who have been paying taxes, having children, and becoming British citizens are still alive. Immigration policies have an impact on them. They’ve lost their employment, health-care coverage, and some have been deported. We Are All Windrush, her campaign, sells t-shirts with all earnings going to the Wind Rush Justice Fund.
