The Interior Ministry was preparing for delays in deportation flights to Rwanda as plans face court cases

Officials who have concerns or issues with the Rwanda program should consider the trauma colleagues endure when scooping babies from the Canal’s waters after they have unsuccessfully crossed, an insider told the Mirror.

The Home Office is bracing for chaos as the first removal flight to Rwanda is expected to be held off by an injunction, the Mirror understands.

On Tuesday, the first group of asylum seekers will be sent more than 4,000 miles to the East African country on a one-way ticket.

Last month Priti Patel said she was “not deterred” by “attempts to thwart the process and delay deportations”.

But officials have long anticipated challenges especially for that first flight.

Activists today officially launched a court case to stop the “unlawful” deportation flights, with the Public and Commercial Services Union (PCS), Care4Calais and Detention Action trying to prevent asylum seekers from being forced onto the planes.

Officials struggling with the program should consider how their colleagues feel about removing babies and children from the Canal’s waters after loved ones make the dangerous crossings, an insider told the Mirror.

Lawyers for more than 90 migrants have already filed legal challenges to remain in the UK, but officials expect the remaining 38 or so who are registered for the June 14 flight to follow suit this week.

The chief inspector for borders and immigration said the policy has not yet had a deterrent effect on the number of people making the dangerous Channel crossing.

David Neal told the Home Affairs Committee that a report on small boat crossings was sent to the Home Office in February and had until April 21.

The reports submitted were due to be made public within eight weeks, according to an agreement with the Home Office, but that had been “routinely” breached, Mr Neal said.

Boris Johnson accepted the measure was not a “magic bullet” that would solve the transitions but said he hoped it would be a “very significant deterrent”.

A Home Office spokeswoman said: “As the Independent Chief Inspector for Borders and Immigration clarified, he has met regularly with Home Office ministers and has been well served by them.”
