"We don’t want citizens to take the law in our own hands, it’s the job of law enforcement agencies.

"We want to work with civil society concerned with migration and undocumented foreigners. Nobody should resort to violence and law enforcement officers should do their jobs.

"People should be attacked or killed because they are foreign nationals."
