A group of Ethiopian immigrants have been lying about their ages to try and help themselves be granted asylum in the United Kingdom, which are increased if you’re between the ages of 14-17 years old. After deciding to remain in France, they’ve switched their stories, saying that they’re actually mostly over 18 to their mid twenties.
These migrants also took advantage of many activities that were provided by the Mediterranean town where they stayed, including day trips around the area, musical events, and art and cooking classes. These people are considered Oromo people, and are highly persecuted in East Africa, which makes their applications for stay highly likely to be approved.
From Gateway Pundit:
Having spent the winter at a migrant reception center in the Mediterranean coastal town of Saintes-Maries-de-la Mer, the group – realizing that the UK was no longer an option – collectively approached authorities with their decision to apply for asylum in France, coming clean on their ages.
Pretty Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer was selected to house one of France’s 450 migrant reception centers and received a contingent of migrants from the Calais ‘jungle’ last autumn. An estimated 10,000 migrants had inhabited the squalid encampment, located outside the northern port city of Calais, making nightly attempts to reach the UK by climbing onto trucks, into shipping containers and even on foot via the Channel Tunnel. Of the 68 ‘unaccompanied minors’ to arrive at Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer from Calais, 16 succeeded in obtaining permission to enter the UK, a small number absconded and the rest have since decided to remain permanently in France.
