Abstract

The treatment of the 'Windrush Generation' has been appalling. Yet, argues Matthew Grant (University of Essex), it reflects the government's policy of creating a 'hostile environment' for people who lack documentation in the UK. And while the plight of Windrush immigrants has generated sympathy even from people who normally oppose immigration, there is little chance that migrants from the rest of the EU will be treated any better. Indeed, most of them will lack the ‘cultural capital’ that has driven outrage about the handling of immigrants who arrived in the 1950s and 1960s.
