Sweeping new curbs on the appeal rights of illegal migrants, foreign prisoners and others facing deportation are to be announced by the home secretary.
Theresa May is to tell the Conservative party conference that the appeals of thousands facing deportation can only be heard after they have been put on a plane home unless they face “a risk of irreversible harm”.
The move is to be part of a sweeping new immigration bill, expected to be published next week, designed to create “a hostile environment” to illegal migrants in Britain. It will detail new measures to ensure private landlords check on the immigration status of tenants and curb access to healthcare for illegal migrants.
The home secretary is also expected to cut the number of grounds on which migrants can lodge an appeal against deportation from the current 17 to just four. A right of appeal is expected to exist only where the decision is said to be “complex and fact-specific”.
