No Borders South Wales have now held four pickets at the Cardiff offices of the ‘Border and Immigration Agency’, General Buildings, 31-33 Newport Road, Cardiff (click here for map).

As well as being the location where individuals who are seeking asylum are required to sign in at regularly while their claim is being processed, it has been discovered that Immigration “snatch squads” operate from this building, where immigration officers and police raid the homes of failed asylum seekers (including children) at dawn to arrest and detain them.

The purposes of the pickets is show solidarity with the people who attend to sign on and to let them know that they are welcome and to highlight our government’s barbaric treatment of people in our own communities.
