She was joined by Thandie Newton who said the theft risked further illegal dismissals of members of the Windrush Generation.

His comments came after lawyers managed to keep 23 criminals – from Jamaica – in the UK.

They have successfully filed last-minute court challenges to prevent offenders from boarding a deportation flight.

More than 60 MPs, mostly from the Labor Party, had urged Priti Patel to drop the theft, saying of the deportees: “Britain is their home”.

And Labor MP Kim Johnson called the deportation “obscene and irresponsible”.

Meanwhile, a group of 82 celebrities, including Naomi Campbell, Line of Duty star Thandie Newton and Bond actress Naomie Harris, signed an open letter demanding the flight not take off.

Their letter stated that many of the people on board had lived in the UK since childhood and may be descendants of the Windrush generation.

They also said that they may have been coerced into committing crimes while being trafficked.

In the letter, they wrote: “Until justice is served for all the victims of the Commonwealth Windrush, any deportation to Commonwealth countries risks unlawfully returning members of the Windrush generation or descendants of Windrush who may be deported. have the right to stay in the UK but have not yet done so. the required paperwork. ”

‘A STAIN ON HISTORY’

But Miss Patel criticized their resemblance to Windrush, telling the Daily Mail: “The Windrush scandal is a stain on our country’s history.

“This generation has made a huge contribution to our country and has been harmed by successive governments.

“To see ill-informed Labor politicians and benevolent celebrities attempt to confuse the victims of Windrush with these vile criminals ready to be deported is not only misjudged and upsetting, but deeply shocking. ”

As part of the Windrush scandal, which began to emerge in 2017, Caribbean migrants living legally in Britain were wrongly targeted by the Home Office for deportation.

The Home Secretary said: “This government will never stand in solidarity with rapists and murderers and we remain committed to expelling these foreign criminals from our country.

“They have violated our laws and have no right to be here. ”

On Wednesday, 13 criminals were deported to Jamaica, while lawyers for 23 others managed to remove them from the plane’s passenger list.

It is understood that 36 Jamaican criminals were notified five days before the flight of their deportation and, at this point, none faced any legal obstacles to their removal.

A large proportion have submitted court challenges, with new complaints including human rights appeals and allegations that criminals have been victims of modern slavery.

The flight landed in Jamaica yesterday with 13 criminals on board, including three killers, a pedophile and four drug dealers.

The 23 who were taken away were jailed for a total of 156 years, including one for life.
