Sajid Javid was named on Monday as Britain's new interior minister after Amber Rudd resigned as home secretary, having "inadvertently misled" lawmakers about deportation targets for illegal immigrants.

Birtish Prime Minister Theresa May's Downing Street office announced the appointment in a statement. Javid was previously Britain's communities minister.

Home Secretary Amber Rudd resigned late on Sunday, saying she had "inadvertently" misled lawmakers about whether the government had deportation targets.

The furor began when the Guardian newspaper reported that some people who came to the UK from the Caribbean in the decades after World War II had been refused medical care recently in Britain or threatened with deportation because they could not produce paperwork proving their right to live in the country.
