Roedd y cais yn rhannol lwyddiannus.

Dear Home Office,

I would like an explanation as to why the UK would deport a 30-year old who has lived in the UK since he was 11.

[extraneous material removed]

In case you don’t recognise the circumstances:

“A man who has been in the UK since the age of 11 and has a British baby is set to be deported on a charter flight to Jamaica within days.

Reshawn Davis, 30, was detained last Friday and told he would be removed to Jamaica on 11 February – on the second charter flight to travel to the country since the Windrush scandal two years ago.

[extraneous material removed]

Just to repeat, my FOI request is: why would the UK deport a 30-year old who has lived in the UK since he was 11?

Yours faithfully,

Beryl Wall
