Us and Them?

This chapter begins by examining terminology of deportation and illegality with reference to the relation between the legal and the political. It then considers the increase in deportation from the UK, and the shift from border enforcement to in-country removals. This raises the question of how people become illegal, and how they move in and out of legal status. There is not a straightforward legal/illegal division, and migrants often become ‘semi-compliant’ residing legally but in breach of conditions. These processes and the impact of deportation and deportability on migrants’ lives will be examined. The chapter then turns to the impact of enforcement and deportation on citizens, not only as a result of the relationships they have with non-citizens who are deportable, but also through the increased visibility of enforcement and the application of checks to all residents and not just migrants, and through the engagement of citizens with anti-deportation campaigns.

Keywords:   anti-deportation campaigns, deportability, deportation, illegality, immigration enforcement, semi-compliance
