Church backs campaign challenging illegal immigration approach

Thomas Baldwin reports on a Church of Scotland challenge to existing illegal immigration policies


The Church of Scotland is backing a new campaign to challenge the UK Government’s approach to illegal immigration which campaigners say is leading to destitution, discrimination and distrust. Church oicials have joined forces with the Baptist Union, Methodist Church and United Reformed Church to call for a review of policies that have created a hostile environment which encourages “suspicion” of the other.

The campaign follows the Wfindrush scandal, in which Commonwealth citizens who had been legally in the UK for decades, and their families faced deportation, loss of homes, jobs and access to NHS treatment because they could not prove their status. And in Scotland, particularly Glasgow, Church ministers and members have recently been involved in a series of cases where asylum seekers have been threatened with deportation to an uncertain future in their countries of origin.
