The Secretary of State has the power to exclude (that is keep you out of the UK) & remove European Economic Association (“EEA”) nationals, otherwise known as European economic migrants, from the UK if particular circumstances are not met or are no longer met by you.
What Are The Circumstances In Which You Can Be Excluded Or Removed?
If you entered the UK as a European national and either took occupation as a student, worker, self-sufficient person, self-employed or became a family member, and later lost this status, you may have to expected to leave the UK. However, European Union law gives rights to citizens of European countries, those with historic rights to be here that have now lapsed, and to dependents and former of EEA nationals, in complex situations which have expanded with recent decisions of the European Court.

Loss Of EEA Rights
Where you live in the UK using your rights under European law, but face allegations that you have acted against the public interest, the Secretary of State may refuse to issue documents to which you think you are entitled, or revoke your existing documents. European Union law sometimes gives individuals strong rights to resist such actions.
Where you or a family member are outside the UK and you are seeking to enter the UK, an Immigration Officer may revoke a family permit for similar reasons. Call us now on 0203 645 5598
Do I Have A Right Of Appeal Against Exclusion And/Or Removal?
Broadly speaking, EEA decisions made after 1st April 2003 attract a right of appeal. This is a complex area of law & specialist advice should be sought to clarify your legal position.
