Deportation is a statutory power of the Home Secretary. People who are not British citizens are liable to deportation from the UK if the Home Secretary deems his deportation to be conducive to the public good.
The UK Borders Act 2007 made provision for the automatic deportation of foreign criminals. The Home Secretary must make a deportation order in respect of a foreign criminal unless certain exceptions apply (eg where deportation would contravene the UK’s obligations under the Refugee and Human Rights Conventions).
Foreign citizens in UK prisons face the very real threat of being deported or facing ‘administrative removal’ after they’ve served their sentence. Even if you had permanent residency before your prison term the Home Office may still look to deport you back to your home country – even the smallest of crimes – and even if you have a family life in the UK. Both EEA and Non-EEA nationals can face deportation
The Home Office will tell you if you are to be deported at the end of your sentence. They will serve (send) an Immigration Detention Order to the prison. You will either stay in prison after the end of your sentence or be sent to an Immigration Detention Centre until you are deported (removed) from the UK. If you do not want to be deported you need to talk to a lawyer to find out what your options are.
