In a shocking discovery that will shake you to the very core of your marrow, it has been revealed that those bajillion child migrants who came to escape the Syrian civil war in Afghanistan are not children at all.
Nearly three-quarters of ‘child asylum seekers’ subjected to examination in 2019 were found to be adults, according to figures produced by Belgian officials.
MP Tom van Grieken requested the information, which was produced by Justice Minister Koen Geens, SCEPTR reports.
Out of 4,563 migrants who declared themselves to be underage in 2019, authorities doubted those claims in 2,546 cases.
Subsequently, further testing conducted upon those individuals revealed that 73.7 percent were 18 or older.
As SCEPTR’s Tom Lallemand notes, ‘unaccompanied minors’ are afforded special privileges under national and international laws which shield them from deportation, ensure a wealth of benefits and financial assistance, as well as the ability to function as an anchor for chain migration by other family members.
“This figure leaves little room not to talk about systematic abuse and deception on a large scale,” said MP Dries van Langenhove, adding that those committing age fraud should be forced to pay for the investigation into their status.
These findings from Belgium align with those from other European countries in recent years.
In 2017, the Swedish government tested nearly 8,000 migrants claiming to be underage and found roughly 6,600 were adults.
Well, now that it’s been determined that most of them are fraudsters, I’m sure they’ll be quickly sent back to wherever they came from, right?
