UK: Disaster for Theresa May as legal ruling brings student deportations to a halt


"The ruling could hardly be more damning. It found Theresa May deported thousands of students from Britain on the basis of unscientific hearsay evidence. The Home Office behaved like a tin-pot dictatorship: detaining innocent people, accusing them of made-up charges without providing anything to back it up, denying them their day in court and then deporting them.

Today's ruling could open the doors to the return of thousands of students to the UK, if – of course - they wish to come back to a country which has treated them so appallingly. And it brings to a shuddering halt Theresa May's mass deportation programme of students. It also raises serious questions about the legal and operational functions – as well as the basic morality – of the Home Office."
