This chapter focuses on two central themes of this book: 1. How the particular laws and rules analysed in chapter two and immigration policies in general were perceived by the very people who were likely to be affected by the immigration control regime, and on whose behalf the organisational network examined in the previous chapter lobbied and criticised the government; 2. How the rules and procedures of the immigration regime influenced the pattern of immigration into Glasgow. The objectives of this chapter are to show how immigration procedures are perceived by people from the Indian sub-continent, to illustrate how they assess the immigration control regime, and to assess the impact of particular rules and procedures. The findings are essentially the perceptions and reflections that immigrants have of the immigration process.
