Brixton has welcomed immigration for a very long time, we are not scared of strangers, we voted 79% to remain in the EU!
There is a Petition
On Monday 30 April 2018 MPs will debate the petition for an “Amnesty for anyone who was a minor that arrived In Britain between 1948 to 1971.” The debate will start at 4.30pm and will be opened by Steve Double MP, a member of the Petitions Committee.
