  • BREAKING: UK 'deportees' being processed, fed after controversial flight to Kingston

    Nearly 50 Jamaica-born individuals are being processed and fed by personnel at the Mobile Reserve headquarters in Kingston on Wednesday.

    The deportees, forcibly removed from the United Kingdom and returned to their homeland by plane on Wednesday morning, arrived around 10:30 am at the Norman Manley International Airport.

    Speaking with Loop News, immigration officials disclosed that, after processing, the deported individuals will be released.

    Dozens of men and women were observed at the processing area, some with as many as five suitcases.

    The controversial deportation flight triggered protest in London on Tuesday, with at least one migration support organisation describing it as racist.

    Unity Centre, a migration support organisation based in Glasgow, said in a statement, that it spoke to more than 50 of the passengers who were booked on the flight, all of whom came to the UK as children and have failed to regularise their immigration status over the years.  

    "In the last few weeks, hundreds of individuals previously released on bail and temporary admission have been detained, in a deliberate act to prepare for this charter flight to Jamaica," Unity Centre said in a press release.

    "Many individuals have ongoing immigration cases and most cannot afford to pay the huge legal fees to regularise their stay. Everyone we have spoken to has been here since they were children and have no family or friends in Jamaica," the organisation continued, noting "Their lives are here in the UK. Everyone we have spoken to has British family, children and partners, even grandchildren and extended family."

  • Jamaican Government sell wi out' ...Deportees furious after returning to the island this morning


    Approximately 42 deported Jamaicans arrived at the Mobile Reserve on South Camp Road in St Andrew from the United Kingdom this morning where they were processed. 

    With family members, bystanders and the media converging at the location, the deportees masked their faces, and some even threatened reporters with violence.

    The consensus among the deportees seems to be that the Government of Jamaica has sold them out.

    Seon Clarke, who had been living in the United Kingdom for over five years, was furious when he spoke to STAR Online.

    “The Jamaican Government is selling us out. Dem tek 20 grand fi each head, and these governments in these countries are using racism to deal with us,” said Clarke, admitting that he was charged for possession of marijuana while living in the United Kingdom. 

    Another deportee, who asked not to be named, said, “Jamaica sell  wi out,” before he was whisked away in a car.

    STAR Online learnt that only 20 families showed up to receive the 42 deportees.

    Meanwhile, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade said in a statement that it was aware of the planned deportation of the 42 Jamaicans by way of a chartered flight. The ministry said that the Ministry of National Security advised that such flights have been used for this purpose for several years.
