The Government has confirmed those who come forward to receive support and assistance will receive only 12 months’ limited leave to remain

The Prime Minister pledged in Parliament not to use the tragedy as an excuse to check residents’ immigration status, but ministers confirmed anyone wanting help must register with Home Office officials and be subject to normal immigration rules after 12 months.
Downing Street confirmed to The Independent that what happens to survivors at that point would “depend on their circumstances”.
Campaigners had raised concerns victims may not come forward for help because they feared questions being raised about their immigration status, with Labour branding the Government’s newly unveiled approach as “grotesque”.
It came as police announced 87 discoveries of human remains in the charred tower, but could not say they belonged to the same number of people because of the “catastrophic damage” in the building.
Jolyon Maugham QC, a prominent barrister who has volunteered to offer free legal services to Grenfell victims, said: “You can’t really call this an amnesty. The Government is offering not to deport you immediately if you give it the wherewithal to deport you later. It’s hard to see that it will have the response the Government says it desires.”
Karen Doyle, spokesperson for Movement for Justice – an immigration rights group – said: “A 12-month amnesty is like handing over a ticking time bomb to severely traumatised people. Recovery from what happened at Grenfell will be a lifetime process – one that requires people are in a safe and secure environment to make space for that painstaking work.
“Navigating the immigration system, living with constant fear of deportation and being constantly told you are a liar is itself a traumatising process.
“For those who are undocumented, who know what fate awaits them at the end of 12 months, this ‘offer’ means nothing.
“The only meaningful offer would be a complete amnesty with permanent right to remain. Let these people heal.”
Those granted limited leave to remain will have full access to relevant support and assistance, but only for the limited time available.
Diane Abbott, the Shadow Home Secretary, said the possibility of deportation for survivors was “grotesque”.
Ms Abbot said: “The partial amnesty is limited to 12 months, which does not go far enough.
“Some victims have literally lost everything in this horrific tragedy: all their possessions, homes and loved ones. The idea that on top of this they could be deported later is grotesque.
“To access all the support they need without fear of deportation, any survivors concerned about their status must be given indefinite leave to remain. Otherwise, they may just disappear off the grid.”
Two weeks ago, Theresa May told the House of Commons: “We will not use this tragic incident as a reason to carry out immigration checks on those involved or on those providing vital information to identify victims or those assisting with the criminal investigation.
“We will make sure that all victims, irrespective of their immigration status, will be able to access the services they need, including healthcare and accommodation.”
Earlier on Wednesday, the Metropolitan Police said that, even with the team of 250 forensic pathologists and officers that are currently working within the tower, it would still take “many months” for the final death toll to be known.
Commander Stuart Cundy said: “Until formal identification has been completed to the coroner’s satisfaction I cannot say how many people have now been recovered.”
The last visible human remains were extracted on Monday, and 21 people have been formally identified by the coroner and their families informed.
