Problem with mirror modifier

I have a small issue when trying to merge two objects together

I am trying to add the following selection...

enter image description here

to be part of the rest of my mesh by using CTRL +J, see below...

enter image description here

However when I do, it splits the first selection in half, see below in yellow. Is this because the first selection no longer has a mirror modifier applied?

enter image description here

On a slightly separate note, when I used shift/click to select both objects - shouldn't the first selection still have a darker outline? (see above second image, showing no outline...)

Many thanks
