The Scottish First Minister told the SNP party conference that an independent Scotland would welcome people from across the home nations - especially those “appalled” at Theresa May’s Brexit plan.
Sturgeon said: “Scotland isn’t full up. If you are as appalled as we are at the path this Westminster government is taking, come and join us.
“Come here to live, work, invest or study. Come to Scotland and be part of building a modern, progressive, outward-looking, compassionate country.”

The First Minister said she will press on with plans to hold a new vote and revealed in a speech to the SNP Spring Conference on Saturday that she expects to get approval from the devolved parliament next Wednesday.
A vote would need to be signed off by London to be legally binding. Sturgeon is seeking to do so once the terms for Brexit are clear but before Britain leaves the EU.
Meanwhile former Labour leader Gordon Brown revealed his own masterplan for allowing Scotland to gain additional powers - while remaining within the United Kingdom.
