The Refugee and Migrant Centre is shocked and saddened to hear the news of Paulette Wilson’s death.
Paulette was supported by RMC when she was wrongly detained by the Home Office. Hearing Paulette speak intimately about her experience of detention powerfully brought home the terrible human costs of immigration enforcement. Paulette was thrust into the spotlight out of necessity due to the injustice of the hostile environment. She dutifully carried the fight for others from the Windrush generation and was instrumental in bringing about change.
Paulette was a wonderful and inspirational individual who was so full of life. Everyone at the Refugee and Migrant Centre in Wolverhampton has fond memories of Paulette, her smile and laughter. The profound sympathies and sincere condolences of all of RMC are with Paulette’s family and friends during this difficult time.
