The people of Glasgow will continue to oppose the brutal and inhumane UK Home Office immigration regime, Scottish Greens co-leader Patrick Harvie has said.
Mr Harvie’s remarks came after the Home Secretary delivered a speech in which she said practices such as dawn raids would continue in the city.
Patrick Harvie said:
“The people of Glasgow have had enough of the institutionally racist Home Office operating its brutal and inhumane immigration regime in our city. As has been shown in recent days they will no longer stand by and watch their vulnerable neighbours cruelly snatched from their homes.
“The Home Secretary claims this is what the British public voted for. Well it’s certainly not what the Scottish or Glaswegian public voted for.
“Scotland can do so much better. We can build a migration and asylum system that has compassion and respect for human rights at its heart. We must acknowledge the massive privilege it is to be in the position to offer people asylum.
“Until Scotland has the powers to build our own system, we can continue to resist the brutality of the Home Office. We must resource our communities, so they are able to actively resist, and support those organisations who are operating on the front line to support asylum seekers, refugees and all migrants in our community.”
