The Secretary of State for the Home Department has the power to deport a non-British citizen from the UK and prevent him/her from returning unless the deportation order is revoked. It has an effect long after the removal. A deportation order continues in force until it is revoked. Deportation must be distinguished from other forms of compulsory removal which may only affect current applications and stay in the UK.
Migrants who have no leave to remain in the UK can be removed from the UK by a process known as 'administrative removal'. This is simply the removal of the person from the United Kingdom. Once outside the UK, the person can apply for re-entry under the Immigration Rules, although there may be issues regarding the trigger of a possible re-entry ban depending on the immigration history of the individual concerned. Administrative removal is distinct from deportation, in that a deportation order physically excludes the person from readmission to the UK for at least three years. However, an administrative removal is a direction and not an order to be removed and has no time period attached to the implementation of the removal.
The Secretary of State for the Home Department has the power to detain any person who is subject to immigration control. In the same manner the Secretary of State for the Home Department has the power to grant SoS bail to such persons.
The Immigration Tribunal has a power to grant bail. The individual may be released on bail subject to conditions. It is important to note that at the bail hearing the burden of proof in justifying detention lies, given the presumption in favour of bail, on the Secretary of State to the balance of probabilities. The immigration judge must give a reasoned decision in writing.
