According to the newspaper “Rzeczpospolita”, the balance of the past four years is 2.5 thousand. Poles who returned home from Great Britain. These are the people considered “undesirable”, often with the baggage of court rulings.

Only in the first five months of this year, about 140 Poles who were previously in British prisons returned to the country. They returned in six chartered planes. This is half more than during the whole of 2020 – so, due to the epidemic, only three pacts with “undesirable” people came to Poland.

Rzeczpospolita quoted information from the Foreign Office: “According to British law, in almost every case when the sentence has expired, the Home Secretary automatically decides to deport them from England.”

In addition, as the daily points out, after the UK leaves the EU, the country may once again deport homeless foreigners. The ban has been in effect since 2017 and was brought forward by a Supreme Court ruling.

As we read, if a foreigner lives on the street and refuses to accept help in a homelessness crisis, he may be deprived of the right to stay and, as a consequence, may be deported from Great Britain.


However, this rule does not apply to EU citizens who have obtained settled status. This applies to aliens who came to the islands after January 1, 2021, when the new immigration system was already in effect.
