‘Child’ Refugees Possibly Up to Age 38 Entering the UK

Weird how there aren’t any females and none of these guys look like children.

A third group of ‘child’ refugees are on their way to Britain after being loaded into a minivan in France.

Pictures of those being bussed over appeared to show all were male once again, as the group boarded a vehicle in Saint Omer ahead of their journey from Calais to the UK.

It comes as the row over the age of migrants arriving intensified with the Home Office revelation that nearly two-thirds of child refugees quizzed about their real age last year were found to be adults.

In the 12 months to September last year, 65 per cent were found to be aged over 18.

The figures show the scale of how adult migrants try to deceive the UK authorities in a bid to be granted sanctuary.

They emerged after Tory MPs raised questions about the ages of 28 refugees brought to the UK this week from the Calais Jungle.

Yesterday, one migrant in particular, wearing a blue hoodie with stubble on his chin, was rated by a facial recognition program as having the features of a 38-year-old.

He was one of 14 to be bussed to Croydon from the notorious Jungle camp shanty town before it is demolished by the French authorities.

They followed 14 who arrived on Monday, as Britain works to reunite unaccompanied youngsters from war-torn countries with family members in the UK.

A Home Office spokesman refused to confirm how many child refugees were due to arrive in Britain today, or whether any were female.

He added: ‘We work closely with the French authorities and their partner agencies to ensure all those who come to the UK from the camps in Calais are eligible under the Dublin regulations.

‘All individuals are referred to the UK authorities by the France terre d’asile (FTDA) and are then interviewed by French and UK officials.

‘Where credible and clear documentary evidence of age is not available, criteria including physical appearance and demeanour are used as part of the interview process to assess age.’

Meanwhile, official figures show that in the year ending September 2015, some 590 asylum applicants had their age disputed. Of those, 574 had an age assessment – with 371 were found to be adults.

They’ll all be on the dole, and God only knows how many pose a terror threat.

    Hmmm…that’s odd how these poor downtrodden refugees are all military aged men.
    Those pictures on the internet of overloaded boats with no women and children present must be photoshopped. (not really)
