star this property answer text <p>The table below shows the published National Statistics for the number of illegal migrants removed in the last three years for which complete data is available. Most immigration offenders are removed under administrative or illegal entry powers from the UK . Deportations are a specific subset of removals which are enforced either following a criminal conviction or when it is judged that a person’s removal from the UK is conducive to the public good. The deportation order prohibits the person returning to the UK until such time as it may be revoked. We have taken the question as meaning all enforced removals.</p><table><tbody><tr><td><p>Year ending</p></td><td><p>Total</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>June 2013</p></td><td><p>14,159</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>June 2014</p></td><td><p>12,539</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>June 2015</p></td><td><p>12,609</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Grand Total</p></td><td><p>39,307</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p>These figures do not include those who left the UK voluntarily from within the immigration detention estate as part of our ongoing promotion of voluntary returns options, for example those who departed on the Assisted Voluntary Returns (AVR) Scheme whilst in detention, which was available to detainees up to April 2014, or those who choose to buy their own ticket once the subject of enforcement action.</p><p>By way of context, these figures correspond over the same period with a rise in the number of departures facilitated by the Home Office without the use of detention, which has been realised by increasing contact with people who are in the UK unlawfully and limiting their access to services for which they are not entitled.</p>
