This chapter shows that recent efforts to deport criminals also serve to underline citizenship's fragility and its contested nature. Drawing upon the example of the United Kingdom, it shows how governments have redrawn the boundaries of membership to bring some groups of people previously accepted as members into the reach of deportation power, generating controversy and contention. The changing historical contours of deportation are examined through the parliamentary discussions surrounding four pieces of UK legislation relating to the British state's deportation power. These are Commonwealth Immigrants Act 1962; the Nationality, Immigration, and Asylum Act 2002; the Immigration, Asylum, and Nationality Act 2006; and the UK Borders Act 2007.

Keywords:   deportation, criminals, immigration policy, citizenship, Commonwealth Immigrants Act 1962, Nationality Immigration and Asylum Act, UK Borders Act 2007
