The Home Office plans to bring back at least 1,000 migrants who have crossed the Channel to Italy, Germany and France in a series of weekly flights.
More than 6,000 refugees have crossed from France in crowded dinghies so far this year.
Officials called the crossings “completely unacceptable”, with Home Secretary Priti Patel planning to bring arrivals back to Europe every week, according to The Telegraph.
The law enforcement secretariat said the government and Ms Patel were “equally frustrated by the gravity of the situation”.

The government office warned it could not take simple measures such as returning migrants after intercepting them at sea, due to legal constraints.
Talks are underway to bring more UK-funded agents to French beaches to prevent people from trying to cross the dangerous passage.
The 1,000 migrants who would be returned to Europe by plane would return to countries where they have already obtained asylum requests.
Around 400 people, including families, believed to have crossed the Channel on small boats, are to be accommodated in temporary accommodation at Napier Barracks in Folkestone, Kent, from next week.
Only 29 migrants who arrived were returned to France in 2019.
The Immigration Law Enforcement Secretariat official told the Telegraph: “Considerable political work is underway to determine where the UK immigration and asylum system is being exploited and abused… In In its present form, the system is inflexible and rigid, and is open to abuse. by migrants and activist lawyers to prevent the return of those who do not have the right to be here.
Earlier this week, it was revealed that the Home Office is considering two former army bases as temporary sites to house refugees while their asylum claims are processed.
Around 400 refugees, including families, will be kept at Napier Barracks in Folkestone, Kent, after the site was also donated to the Home Office by the Department of Defense.
The Ministry of Defense has also offered a penal training camp in Wales, more than 500 miles from the English Channel.
The penal training camp in Wales could be used to house 250 refugees, who have crossed the Channel, while their asylum claims are processed
It could accommodate 250 asylum seekers.
A spokesperson for the Interior Ministry said: “In these unprecedented times, the government is working with a range of partners and between departments to secure new housing and the Defense Ministry has offered to use some of the its sites.
“When we use emergency adaptation measures, we work closely with organizations, including local authorities and law enforcement agencies, throughout the process to ensure value for money and that Vulnerable asylum seekers, who would otherwise be deprived, are provided with suitable accommodation while their claims are being processed. “
