Police to stop passing on immigration status of crime victims

Police will cease to automatically pass information about people suspected of being in the country illegally to deportation authorities if they come forward as victims of crime, according to a new policy hammered out in the wake of the Windrush scandal, the Guardian has learned. These changes were made possible by the work of migrant women survivors, black-led VAWG organisations including Southall Black Sisters and Latin American Women’s Rights Service, and campaigners.
