This week Rory is filling in for Craig, who is in Dundee for the Scottish Trades Union Congress Annual Conference. Rory is joined by Savan Qadir, from Refugees for Justice and the University of Glasgow, to talk about the current UK immigration system, the impact it has on refugees and asylum seekers, as well as the host communities they integrate with, and how Scotland could lead the way with a more caring and compassionate approach to immigration.
