A 27-year-old man born in the United Kingdom to Kenyan parents has been stripped of his British passport and now faces deportation.
Unlike in the past when it was thought that people born in the UK were immune from passport cancellation, the British immigration system appears to have taken a different direction, especially for those convicted of violent crime, drugs, and terrorism.
The man, a resident of South East London, was ordered be to reporting to the police every two weeks, according to misterseed.com.
The revocation of the man's passport becomes the first case involving a member of the Kenyan community in the UK and comes a few weeks after a 19-year old man from Elephant and Castle, South London and born in the UK to Nigerian parents was deported last month.
Upon arrival in Nigeria, the teenager was forced to call his parents in the UK requesting contacts and names of their relatives in Nigeria because he had never been to Nigeria before.
