Abstract

This article presents the experiences of deportability of Polish prisoners incarcerated in the North of Ireland. Based on the author's doctoral research, it discusses the prisoners' feelings of uncertainty and anxieties created by the prospect of being removed from the UK post sentence. The article argues that the treatment of those prisoners constitutes part of a 'war on migration' and migrants, currently evident in the actions of the UK's immigration authorities. Exclusion of foreign national prisoners from the UK is now part of a policy that differentiates them from 'local' prisoners not only when they are in custody, but long after.
