Priti Patel has resigned as British Home Secretary.

The British Minister of the Interior, Priti Patel, announced on Monday her departure from the Government, before Liz Truss takes office on Tuesday as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom and appoint a new cabinet.

The UK has used the freedoms of Brexit to take back control of immigration laws

During the three years he has been in office, the UK has “used the freedoms of the Brexit to take back control of the immigration laws,” Patel said.

“Our historic Immigration Law has ended the freedom of movement (between the European Union and the UK) and has given us control of the borders. We can now attract the best and the brightest from around the world to the UK, rather than suffer the ill effects of uncontrolled freedom of movement,” he stressed.

Liz Truss

Liz Truss, 47, becomes the third woman to hold this position in UK history.

Truss, appointed this Monday as leader of the Conservative Party and Johnson’s successor in Downing Street, has assured during the “Tories” primaries that her intention is to maintain the plan to deport asylum seekers to Rwanda, a program that is still under judicial review. .

Among the favorites to occupy the Interior portfolio in the Truss Executive, which will be announced on Tuesday afternoon, is the State Attorney General, Suella Braverman, who also ran for the race to lead the party but was ousted in the first phases.
