Further, both prisons and immigration detention centres operate as ‘exclusionary zones’ that mark the physical and symbolic borders of British society. Jonathan Simon (1998: 590) examined the systematic imprisonment of immigrants in the United States from the 1980s onwards as a response to the massive population flows from Latin America. He suggested that the use of imprisonment – a ‘specialized penal system’ – was a governmental strategy to regulate the global flows of people in a flexible, cost-efficient way.

Criminalization is, thus, an accidental, mundane, erratic and discretionary phenomenon rather than a planned strategy and a synchronized project to keep people behind bars. This study is both a theoretical and empirical enquiry about the role of criminal law and the criminal justice system in the regulation of immigration. It sheds light on the unexplored field of ‘criminal immigration laws’ (Eagly 2010: 1297) by providing original empirical data on the decision-making process in cases involving people in breach of immigration rules and how these cases are dealt with by the criminal justice system.
