Confirmed: Two-Thirds of ‘Child Refugees’ Questioned in UK Are Adult

Around two-thirds of “child refugees” who were questioned about their age in the UK were revealed to be adults, a government report has found.
In one year, 65 per cent of asylum seekers assessed were judged to be over the age of 18.
The report, by immigration watchdog boss David Bolt, revealed the Home Office received 2,952 asylum applications from unaccompanied children, of which 705 had their age disputed.
Of that, 618 cases were resolved, and 402 of them were found to be adults.
In October 2016, a public row erupted over “child refugees” as a stream of migrants began to arrive from Calais, some of who looked middle-aged.
The government had promised not to accept any new-arrivals from safe countries such as France, but campaigners took advantage of a new loophole in migration law aimed at children known as the Dubs amendment.
