Mercy Baguma was a human being, she was a person, she was living and working in the same city as me, in the same moments as me and you post this after letting her die? You’re celebrating future deaths, blaming the EU that more aren’t dying. Shameful!

First Minister calls for root and branch reform of UK’s immigration system in the wake of the death of Mercy Baguma. Her body was discovered in her flat in Glasgow with her one year old malnourished son alongside her.

Barbaric example of the extreme poverty people are living in, and an indictment of this rotten capitalist system!
As a migrant single mother, Mercy Baguma was considered to be one of the “undeserving poor” in Tory Britain, left to starve to death.

It would be great if @pritipatel
found a bit of dignity and humanity in herself to address this appaling situation.

“Why are mothers & babies being left to go hungry, & why is it being left to charities & volunteers to pick up the pieces? The fact is there is no safety net if you are a refugee or migrant.”
Mercy Baguma was left destitute after leave to remain expired.

‘A land of hope and glory does not allow a woman to die in poverty with her child at her side.’
We should all be angry about the death of Mercy Baguma, dead at the hands of a system designed to be hostile.
Well said @MatthewdAncona.

Good piece by @ClaudiaWebbe about recognising what Mercy Baguma’s horrific case tells us and what must change now.

This week Mercy Baguma, an asylum seeker from Uganda who was living in “extreme poverty”, was found dead next to her malnourished baby. Could this mark a much needed turning point in putting an end to the government’s inhumane hostile environment policy?

From the state violence that killed Mercy Baguma in the UK, that paralysed Jacob Blake in the US and that encroaches on the everyday lives of black people across the world: we know society is hard to feel okay in right now for young people ?#BlackLivesMatter pic.twitter.com/NfK1Xy7AZv

Mercy Baguma’s death must be a turning point and hold a mirror to our society.
An important read from @ClaudiaWebbe on why Gov must provide clearer and quicker routes to lifesaving funds to prevent those 3,000 migrants at risk of slipping into tragedy

Mercy Baguma’s Death Is Shocking In Modern Britain, But It Could Happen Again Tomorrow hThiscountry’s open door unlimited and unchecked migration for the last 20 years, has created hundreds of thousands of illiterate people who breed recklessly.

Important thread of the devastating death of #MercyBaguma and why this young woman and mother’s death is not a one off – it has happened before and it will likely happen again until the government ends it’s cruel and inhumane #HostileEnvironment policy and scraps #NRPF #EndNRPF

Mercy Baguma died less than a week ago because of you and you have the nerve to post this? Shame on you. I hope your staff enjoy their life of privilege and never have to experience what refugees have gone through

Absolutely disgusting to put this message the week a young mother, Mercy Baguma, was found dead next to her starving baby because of the actions of your department. I hope you are ashamed of this tweet, because it has made me ashamed of our country.

They should not be allowed to land here in the first place. Mercy Baguma had already sought asylum in France and was in his twenties. This is a tiny country and they are from France. Is it at war or have I missed something?
