Theresa May criticises judges for 'ignoring' deportation law
Home Secretary Theresa May has accused judges of making the UK more dangerous by ignoring rules aimed at deporting more foreign criminals.
Last year, MPs approved new guidance for judges making clear a criminal's right to a family life had limits.
Some judges were choosing to "ignore parliament's wishes," she argued.
Last year's guidance was designed to put an end to circumstances in which the right to a family life as set out in Article 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights was used to justify granting foreign criminals the right to remain in the UK, rather than being deported.
