Protesters Surround Immigration Enforcement Van in Glasgow Neighborhood

An immigration-enforcement operation drew a crowd of protesters in Glasgow, Scotland, on May 13, with hundreds of people surrounding a United Kingdom Border Agency van, according to local media and videos from the scene.

Police were seen surrounding the van on Kenmure Street as the crowd chanted “These are our neighbors, let them go!” Tangent, a Glasgow-based company, provided this footage from the scene.
