In the case of a settled migrant who is lawfully present and has spent the major part of his childhood and youth in the host country, very serious reasons (normally relating to public safety, economic wellbeing of the country, or the prevention of disorder or crime) are required to justify1 his removal2.

(1) the nature and seriousness of the offences or offences committed by the migrant;
(2) the length of the migrant's stay
