Has God really said …
That the Jews have no right to return to and live in their former land?

Here are some Bible passages that provide an answer for this question:
11 In that day the Lord will reach out his hand a second time to reclaim the remnant that is left of his people from Assyria, from Lower Egypt, from Upper Egypt, from Cush, from Elam, from Babylonia, from Hamath and from the islands of the sea.
24 "'For I will take you out of the nations; I will gather you from all the countries and bring you back into your own land.
25 I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you will be clean; I will cleanse you from all your impurities and from all your idols.
26 I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh.
27 And I will put my Spirit in you and move you to follow my decrees and be careful to keep my laws.
28 You will live in the land I gave your forefathers; you will be my people, and I will be your God.
29 I will save you from all your uncleanness. I will call for the grain and make it plentiful and will not bring famine upon you.
The above passage clearly indicates that the Jews will return in unbelief, because they will return with their uncleanness upon them, and then the Lord "will cleanse [the Jews] from all [the Jews] impurities and from all [the Jews] idols"
27 When I have brought them back from the nations and have gathered them from the countries of their enemies, I will show myself holy through them in the sight of many nations.
28 Then they will know that I am the LORD their God, for though I sent them into exile among the nations, I will gather them to their own land, not leaving any behind.
29 I will no longer hide my face from them, for I will pour out my Spirit on the house of Israel, declares the Sovereign LORD."
9 I will not execute My fierce anger; I will not destroy Ephraim again. For I am God and not man, the Holy One in your midst, And I will not come in wrath.
10 They will walk after the LORD, He will roar like a lion; Indeed He will roar And His sons will come trembling from the west.
11 They will come trembling like birds from Egypt And like doves from the land of Assyria; And I will settle them in their houses, declares the LORD.
8 "I will whistle for them to gather them together, For I have redeemed them; And they will be as numerous as they were before.
9 "When I scatter them among the peoples, They will remember Me in far countries, And they with their children will live and come back.
10 "I will bring them back from the land of Egypt And gather them from Assyria; And I will bring them into the land of Gilead and Lebanon Until no room can be found for them.
11 "And He will pass through the sea of distress And strike the waves in the sea, So that all the depths of the Nile will dry up; And the pride of Assyria will be brought down And the scepter of Egypt will depart.
12 "And I will strengthen them in the LORD, And in His name they will walk," declares the LORD.
The above passages indicate a later phase of return in faith
The Jews will return from the four corners (north, south, east west) of the earth in two phases: the first phase is the return in unbelief. The second phase is the return as believers. The first return has only taken place since the twentieth century. The full restoration of Israel to its land with full peace and security will require the return of the Messiah.
