The woman was born in Switzerland in the 1950s – but her mother married a Belgium man and she lost her citizenship.

She moved back to Switzerland with her young daughter around 10 years ago. But she never managed to find a job and took CHF 265,000 in social payments.

The Federal Court upheld a decision by the Migration Office to deport the woman as her financial situation is precarious.
