Immigration Appeal. The appellant Jamaican and Moroccan nationals unlawfully entered the United Kingdom and had children born in UK. They were convicted of serious criminal offences and the Secretary of State ordered their deportation. The appellants appealed. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, in dismissing their appeals, held that EU law was not engaged as the children would not be compelled to leave the country if the appellants were refused the right of residence, albeit that the children's quality of life was diminished. Further, their rights to private and family life were not infringed.
