Ace Ruele Aristotles faces deportation to Jamaica despite having only ever visited the country twice.
The 33-year-old actor, who has appeared in Eastenders and New Blood, has successfully challenged deportation before, having served a prison sentence for minor offences in his youth.
As a result of his crimes, his immigration status was changed to limited leave to remain five years ago. Aristotles lost an appeal by the Government that he had a "financial incentive" to reoffend and hadn't demonstrated family ties, despite having children in the UK.
He now has to renew his right to remain every 30 months at a cost of £2,389 each time.
“Why should I pay every 30 months for limited leave to remain in the country I was born in and, if I don’t, be faced with removal? I didn’t immigrate from another country, I can’t go anywhere else,” he told The Independent.
