A Professor has suggested that the Home Secretary might deport herself because of her immigration policy.
Professor of Black Studies at Birmingham University, Kehinde Andrews, said that he “wouldn’t be surprised” if Home Secretary Priti Patel deported herself.
The comment comes following the suspension of union Unite’s Assistant General Secretary, Howard Buckett, for tweeting that Priti Patel should deport herself. Mr Buckett later told Sky News that his suspension from the Labour Party was “completely inappropriate” and that he would not withdraw from the Unite leadership contest.
Mr Buckett did apologise to Ms Patel and deleted his tweet.
Professor Andrews tweeted today: “Given her policy agenda I wouldn’t be surprised if Priti Patel deported herself.”
The comment is part of a series of tropes against Ms Patel that claim the Home Secretary is a ‘race traitor’ due to her stance on immigration.
The comments also come following the release of two men from immigration forces after protests stopped the men from being detained.
Protestors and policemen were engaged in a standoff in Glasgow on Thursday, after two men of Indian origin were removed by immigration forces from their flat for suspected immigration offences. One protester lay under the van, stopping the police from detaining the suspects.
The Home Office said in a statement: “The UK Government is tackling illegal immigration and the harm it causes, often to the most vulnerable people by removing those with no right to be in the UK.
“The operation in Glasgow was conducted in relation to suspected immigration offences and the two Indian nationals complied with officers at all times.
“The UK Government continues to tackle illegal migration in all its forms and our New Plan for Immigration will speed up the removal of those who have entered the UK illegally.”
