Just one in five fake child migrants caught lying about their age in the last six years was sent home

Migrant child, no really, he’s just a toddler that shaves.

Just one in five young asylum seekers who lied about their age in a bid to enter the UK is ever forced out of the country, it has been revealed.

Home Office records reveal that 2,644 adults were caught trying to cross the border into Britain from 2010 to 2016 as an ‘unaccompanied asylum seeking’ child.

However, only 580 of these people were kicked out after being caught posing as a vulnerable child in a bid to cheat their way into the UK.

Statistics for 2017, from January to September, showed that two-thirds of the 692 people whose date of birth was challenged by the Home Office were over 18.

    But it’s racist to question a refugee after all their trauma traveling though all those countries to get to their final destination!

    malfeasance by these public officials, mount their heads on pikes as a warning to other uncivil servants

      Probably why gubmint employs mostly women and some token minorities, ergo anyone that complains about anything to do with any western civil service is classified as a misogynist, racist or threatening and intimidating homophobe, conservative, etc – regardless.

    Well I guess you could possibly say that no one ever claimed that the British civil service was efficient.

      No civil service is efficient; British or other wise.

    So the message is, “Not only do we not want to know if these people are lying about their ages, we don’t care.”

    If this is the case, I’m 70 years old and need them to pay me an old age pension, backpaid for the last few years I should have been paid for. Not that different really, is it?

      A small sample of this toddler’s tooth enamel when analyzed with today’s technology can also nail his abode for the last decade or so with remarkable accuracy. The less wandering he has done, the more accurate the results. Bet some results would be fairly astounding to say the least.

        He looks like someone out of a Tarzan movie.
