Police cells are for holding people who are being accused of a crime from where they will either go to court or be released with or without charge. Immigrants are not processed via police cells and the police do not process immigrants that is the job of the home office and should remain that way. It is frightening enough for immigrants who have made their way here through dangerous and difficult journeys without us locking them up in a police cell without support or those holding them having extensive immigration law knowledge.
