Sample text

The practice of prosecuting undocumented migrants is then contrasted with policy statements which emphasize that criminal law should be reserved for the most harmful and serious crimes. This chapter shows that criminal law in the immigration field is used instrumentally. It serves the goals and imperatives of immigration enforcement of restricting and excluding those with no right to be in Britain. As such, its primary function of censuring serious wrongs is disrupted. Once a criminal prosecution is initiated, the normal criminal process follows.

For instance, foreigners who did not exhibit their passports when so requested were liable to up to a month in prison if convicted for that crime, and were ordered to depart from the kingdom at the expiration of the sentence. 6 At the time there was no organized police force so the enforcement of the act was left to magistrates (Troup 1925: 142). Although it was passed as a temporary law, the AA 1793 was renewed by subsequent acts until 1826 when it was allowed to lapse. After the French wars, the British government started to use its power to deport foreigners more sporadically.

British immigration legislation, since the early twentieth century, established harsh controls over non-nationals and continuously expanded the category of ‘exclusionable’ foreigners. g. Albrecht 2000; Miller 2003; Wacquant 2006; De Giorgi 2010; Sklansky 2012), I will demonstrate that the criminalization of migration is not new. Immigrationrelated offences or ‘immigration crimes’ – some of them punishable by imprisonment – have been incorporated in immigration statutes since the late 1700s. 1 In the late eighteenth century, there was an influx of French émigrés to Britain, following the radicalization of the French Revolution which led to the formation in France of the Committee of Public Safety during the ‘Reign of Terror’.
