Home secretary endorsed by former BNP protegee as she claims ‘more than one in five births are to foreign-born mothers’

Prominent figures on the far right have praised Suella Braverman’s speech in which she warned of the “existential challenge” posed by illegal migration, and vowed to “capitalise” on her intervention.

The home secretary has already caused concern among liberal Tory MPs over her apparent threats to leave the European convention on human rights (ECHR). In the speech in Washington DC last week, she suggested that being gay or a woman and fearful of discrimination should not be enough to qualify as a refugee in the UK.
