SUELLA Braverman today called on Sir Keir Starmer and his top team to apologise after they campaigned to keep foreign thugs in Britain.

The Home Secretary said Labour MPs should “hang their heads in shame” after criminals they argued against deporting went on to commit MORE heinous crimes.

Suella Braverman today called on Sir Keir Starmer to apologise for campaigning to keep foreign criminals in Britain

A furious Ms Braverman told the Commons: “The Labour Party are much more interested in writing letter campaigns to stop the Home Office from deporting serious foreign national offenders.

“They’re much more interested in the rights of criminals rather than the rights and entitlements of the law abiding majority.

 “I agree, they really should be apologising for the devastating action.”

Last week, after delivering a speech on crime, the Labour Leader refused to apologise for signing a letter calling for 50 dangerous offenders not to be deported on a flight to Jamaica.

Instead, a remorseless Sir Keir boasted: “I stand proudly by my record.”

In 2020, the Labour boss demanded “all future (deportation) charter flights must be suspended” — and even suggested the convicts be handed taxpayer-funded mobile phones to help them with their attempts to stay in Britain.

But an exclusive Sun investigation revealed seven of the thugs went on to commit more violent or drug-related crimes following the intervention.

Among those who reoffended on the back of the Labour Leader’s intervention was heroin dealer Akiva Heaven, who had already served four years behind bars and was released in 2018.

He was jailed again in May 2021 for dealing cocaine and heroin in Southsea, Hants.

Sir Keir also helped stop Barrington Laing from being removed — despite a decade of crime beginning when he was in an Asbo gang aged just 14.
