Thread: Boris Johnson To Deport 50 Jamaicans

    Thumbs up Boris Johnson To Deport 50 Jamaicans

    The government has defended its decision to push ahead with an imminent deportation flight to Jamaica despite last-minute legal challenges by people due to be on board, and concerns that Windrush citizens could be among those removed.

    More than 100 cross-party MPs and peers have signed a letter to Boris Johnson calling for the flight to be postponed pending recommendations from a review into Windrush, while Labour said there was a worry British nationals could be involved.

    The letter also cited concerns about the potential deportees’ access to legal advice and mobile phones, and how many had been in the UK since they were children.

    But asked about the flight, due to leave on Tuesday – only the second the Home Office has chartered to Jamaica since the Windrush scandal – Rishi Sunak, the chief secretary to the Treasury, said: “All due process will have been followed.”

    He told Sky News: “The people on this plane are people who have committed very serious crimes, whether it’s rape, manslaughter, murder.

    “These are serious offences and we have a established process for ensuring that where we have foreign nationals who have committed crimes here, they should be, where possible, deported. That’s something that’s sensible and proportionate.”

    Not all those on the flight have committed such serious crimes. Many have committed just one offence, in many cases drug supply, GBH or joint-enterprise crimes.

    Speaking later to Sky the Labour MP David Lammy said he knew of eight deportees convicted of non-violent offences, and nine of drug offences.

    Asked about Sunak’s comments, Lammy said: “It’s outrageous, because that’s what they said about the 164 people that they sent back to Jamaica [under Windrush]. And some of them died in the streets of Jamaica. And some of them were British.

    “They are depriving 41 children of their parents. Many of these young men have children What will happen to them?”

    Lammy also argued for an deportation flights to be halted in the run-up to the review into Windrush, conduced by Wendy Williams, an inspector of constabulary: “The right thing to do is to wait for their own review, where a leak last week suggests that Wendy Williams was saying: ‘Don’t deport people who who arrived here under 13.’ I think that sounds right.”

    Diane Abbott, the shadow home secretary, said, “No one argues we should go soft on serious criminals. Labour has lambasted Tory governments for overseeing a surge in serious violent crime.

    “The issue is whether all of these people are in fact foreign nationals, or some are actually British. We must not continue the Windrush scandal of deporting our own citizens.”

    The Guardian spoke to 13 of those due to be on board the flight. They said between them they would be leaving behind dozens of young children, along with their immediate and extended families, if the deportations go ahead, and they would be putting their lives at risk because of gang violence on the island. Many have lived in the UK since childhood.

    One of those involved, Tajay Thomson, arrived in the UK in 2001 aged five. Now 23, he has a conviction for a drugs offence for which he served a seven-month sentence in 2015. “I feel like my life has been taken away by the Home Office,” he said.

    Asked if Thomson’s deportation was proportionate, Sunak said: “I can’t comment on the individual cases but I can tell you about the process, and of course due process will have been followed in matters such as these.”

    It's a joke, this country is a joke. We have no deterrent whatsoever, why don't we just keep the borders open & just build more prisons with high tech 5* facilities #Jamaica50
    Its common sense to have Open Border! and the joke and corrupted prisons!
    Could also someone explain why would a criminal that has committed need sim cards while in detention!? looks like the Court of Appeal are trying to protect some criminals from the looks of it.

    I love how the MSM fascists give voices to criminals look what in the article has being quoted.

    'I have no-one in Jamaica'
    Well then if these one of these criminals have no one in Jamaica maybe they should thought not committing a criminal offense in the first place. I am disgusted that there are these human rights NGOs defending these criminals.

    This part is ironic.
    She told Nick: "These are the children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews of the Windrush generation."
    The fact that some of these 50 Jamaican criminals were even responsible for grooming is beyond my belief why Leftists believe that more open borders and just better prisons is going to help fix everything?

    What have the leftists being smoking!?
    I just find it comical how leftists always on twitter call for more open borders and diversity yet makes you wonder? will they ever open their own homes for open borders starting at their own homes?

    One of the people scheduled for deportation was accused of the serious crime of "dangerous driving". One served with the UK military and has been diagnosed with PTSD after two tours in Afghanistan. 14 were for drug related offenses. https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-47123841
