Figures published recently have suggested that it is taking longer to deport foreign criminals from the UK; with the figures suggesting that it is taking up-to six months.
The latest figures, which have been published by the Home Office, have suggested that whilst four years ago it took just over 140 days to deport foreign criminals, last year the time increased to nearly 190 days.
It has also been suggested within the figures that fewer foreign criminals were now being deported, with the data revealing that whilst in excess of 5,300 foreign criminals were deported in 2010, last year less than 4,700 were deported.
However, despite the figures, the Immigration Minister has stated that the government were securing deportation orders earlier than before within the overall process, enabling them to achieve the earliest possible deportation date for foreign criminals.
