Under section 15 of the Immigration Act 1971, the Home Secretary has a very broad power to deport any foreign national whose removal from the UK he or she believes would be ‘conducive to the public good’. Although the Home Secretary enjoys a very broad ground to deport foreign nationals, this power is traditionally exercised when a foreign national is engaged in criminal activity or deemed a threat to the national security of the UK.
Regardless of where they've come from, residents living under British jurisdiction should have the same legal status, including being answerable to the domestic British justice system in the same way as each other.
Yes, immigrants who have committed an offence should be deported to the country of origin as applicable, only if such a nation is known to be a safe environment to allow for the individuals fair and public trial. In the circumstance where the nation in question is not a safe destination for the deported immigrant, they should then be deported to a country that is known to be safe. The immigrant may be afforded the choice of destination in cases of lesser crime, however this will not be the case in more serious situations. An immigrant may not be deported for acts of High Treason, Sedition, or any other extreme act of violence towards the Public or the Crown (which is considered to be an embodiment of our nation).
depends, as they should be arrested and returned to their country if their human rights will be upheld if they are found going through with a terrorist attck, but if they are just taking about it then they should be allowed to, unless it escalates to threats, in which case the police should warn them and make sure they understand the consequences. if the human rights will not be upheld in their country of origin, then they should serve their sentence here.
