This article focuses on persons in the UK who could otherwise have been lawfully resident or illegally in the United Kingdom but were involved in acts of criminality that resulted in their convictions and sentences to terms of imprisonment. The position is that those convicted for a minimum of 12 months are automatically subject to deportation if they are not British citizens and are referred to as foreign criminals.
