Child refugees will cost Britain £150k a year EACH
CHILD refugees from the Calais Jungle could cost the UK £150,000 each every year they are here.
CHILD REFUGEES ARE ALLOWED TO COME TO UK IF THEY HAVE FAMILY MEMBERS HERE. YET THESE FAMILY MEMBERS PASSED THROUGH SAFE LANDS OR ARRIVED FROM FRANCE SO SHOULD NEVER HAVE BEEN GIVEN ASYLUM IN FIRST PLACE. ONE AFGAN LAD RE-UNITED WITH WARLORD AFGHAN FATHER WHO HAS BEEN BACK TO AFGHANISTAN. SO FATHER SHOULD NEVER HAVE BEEN LET BACK IN THE UK. SAUDI IS CLOSER TO SYRIA THAN GERMANY – THESE MIGRANTS PREFER UK BECAUSE THEY GET FREE SOCIAL HOUSING, RENTS PAID, FREE CHILD BENEFITS, FREE EDUCATION, FREE NHS. YET THEY HAVE PAID NOTHING INTO OUR COUNTRY AND MANY HAVE NEVER WORKED SINCE ARRIVING HERE. THEY ARE OFTEN HOMED IN LUXURY HOMES MUCH BETTER THAN ENGLISH GET. THEY MOAN THEY HAVE ONLY BEEN GIVEN 5 BEDRROM HOMES YET BACK IN CAMEROON THEY SHARED KITCHEN AND BATHROOM WITH OTHER FAMILIES AND HAD NO RUNNING WATER. AFRICA HAS PLENTY OF SAFE LANDS AND JUST BECAUSE THEY COME TO THE UK VIA FRANCE FROM AFRICA SHOULD BE NO RESON TO LET THEM INTO THE UK. WE MUST STOP GIVING OUT ASYLUM AND FOREIGN AID AND LOOK AFTER OUR OWN PEOPLE. WE SHOULD ALSO STOP ARRANGED MARRAIGE AS IS OFTEN DONE TO GET A BRITISH PASSPORT.
Yet often british born people who have come back to UK from overseas are not allowed to stay in the UK.
Unaccompanied children have been sent to the UK from the dismantled refugee camp on the French border.
Coventry City Council acknowledged that a shortage of foster carers meant it had to use homes for some children.
The total taxpayer bill for rehousing the refugees will be almost £2.5million in Coventry alone.
French officials last week demanded that Britain takes 1,500 children from the Calais Jungle.
Coventry has made the biggest commitment to house the refugees and will re-home an estimated 53 children.
But Councillor Ed Ruane, Coventry City Council’s children’s chief, stood by its decision to take in the children.
He added: “I have met some of these families and children. Whether or not this is perceived as popular, it’s the right thing to do, and that’s just the way it is.”
In Coventry, the council is receiving grants of £37,000 per child but is being left to pick up the rest of the tab.
A council spokesman said he could not specify what the £150,000 had been spent on because the costs depended on the needs of each child.
The number of child refugees taken in by Britain has more than doubled from 2,050 in 2014 to 4,210 in March this year.
