‘These don’t look like children to me’: concerns raised over ages of child refugees arriving in Britain

The Home Office has no way of verifying the age of child refugees being brought to the UK, it has emerged amid concerns that adults are posing as minors to gain access to Britain.

Fourteen “teenagers” on Monday arrived in the UK from Calais as a fast-track system was launched to transfer youngsters from the “Jungle” camp before it is demolished.

The Home Office insisted it had “verified” the ages of all the refugees and that all of those who were brought to the UK were aged between 14 and 17.

    That’s terrible those midgets chasing that poor child.

    ‘The Home Office has no way of verifying the age of child refugees being brought to the UK,.’ A simple medical exam will verify it. Do they have all their adult teeth, have their molars descended, have the sutures in their skull closed, and a half-dozen other simple tests can easily determine their age. They are deliberately lying to us and laughing while doing it. Anyone assaulted by these men should charge these bureaucrats as accessories.

      It’s plausible deniability: the politicians, bureaucrats and the refugee advocates really don’t want to know. Either they favor open borders for these migrants, or it would present problems since there is no absolute proof that someone is 18 and not 17 years and 9 months old. Many lawsuits would be brought about claiming that the stress and poor environment has caused unusually early maturation of the migrant. Try to prove otherwise if there is some doubt.

    The immigrant activists look for loopholes, the government pretends they’re over a barrel and the migrants keep arriving. Don’t trust any western government to do what’s in the interest of their citizens.

    So Britain does not already have enough Muslims raping and killing and needs to import more.

    I’m sure Trudeau will send over Canada’s newly appointed special envoy to make sure we take in our fair share of these poor children.
