Javid, the son of Pakistani immigrants, is the first politician from an ethnic minority to hold one of the four top jobs in Britain's government - prime minister, finance minister, foreign secretary and home secretary.

The British government says they will be allowed to stay and has promised to set up a simple no-fuss registration process.

One of the first tasks for Javid is clearing up the fallout from the so-called "Windrush" scandal, where Caribbean migrants who moved to the United Kingdom after World War 2 have been systematically victimised and threatened with dentention and deportation.

Late Sunday, Amber Rudd resigned from her post as Britain's Home Secretary following accusations that she lied to Parliament last week about deportation targets for illegal immigrants.

Prior to his appointment as the home secretary, Javid was secretary of state for communities and local government since 2016, where he worked to build affordable housing for young owners as well as increase the quality of council housing.

The loss of one of May's closest allies is a blow as she navigates the final year of negotiations ahead of Britain's exit from the European Union in March 2019.

Wenger: I was right to reject Man Utd

Rudd said she didn't see the memo, but The Guardian later published a leaked letter she wrote to the prime minister discussing an aim of increasing removals by 10 percent.

Rudd, who had faced growing pressure over the so-called Windrush scandal, told lawmakers last week that there were no targets for the removal of people deemed to be in the country illegally.

While aimed at ending the scandal, Javid's appointment may also signal a shift on Brexit.

Rudd was the fourth high-ranking minister to resign from Prime Minister May's Conservative government in the past six months.

Javid, 48, is a former managing director at Deutsche Bank. "They too came to help rebuild this country and offer all that they had".

"When I heard about the Windrush issue I thought, 'That could be my could be my could be my could be me'".

Jewish leaders label Corbyn talks 'a missed chance'
Corbyn said that these need to be "confronted and dealt with more rapidly and effectively" than has been the case until now. A meeting earlier this week between Corbyn and Jewish leaders went badly.

Britons, overall, would likely not be too upset with a government that pushed illegal immigrants out.

May is expected to name a replacement on Monday - and is facing opposition calls to take responsibility for tough immigration policies that started when she was home secretary in 2012.

"I think that's what people want to see", said Javid, whose parents were born in pre-Partition India before migrating to Pakistan and then to the United Kingdom in the 1960s.

But Theresa May at least avoided significant aftershocks in the very limited reorganisation of her Cabinet, which is not as easy as it looks for a diminished Prime Minister who botched a wider reshuffle in January when certain Ministers refused to move from jobs.

Yvette Cooper, who chairs the Home Affairs Committee, said there appeared to be a "lack of grip" at the Home Office over whether targets were in use.

Only last week she had denied any knowledge of such targets, but correspondence published by the Guardian on Sunday showed Rudd had told Downing Street a year ago of an "ambitious but deliverable" target for an increase in deportations.
