Last week I was interviewed on Scotland 2016 to talk about the UK Government’s decision to close Dungavel Immigration Detention Centre.

Like my party, I have long been a critic of immigration detention as a whole. However, I am deeply concerned about the plans to simply replace Dungavel with a new ‘rapid removal facility’ in Glasgow.

Rather than reducing the number of people detained, there is a risk that this move will see people taken further away from their friends, families and legal representation.
