Meanwhile, In Calais



At the makeshift refugee camp in Calais, France

Further to reports of several hundred unaccompanied child refugees being left unregistered with nowhere to go in Calais, France, following its demolishment…

Chief Executive of the Children’s Rights Alliance Tanya Ward writes:

The Irish Government made a pledge to take 4,000 refugees and to prioritise unaccompanied minors in its International Refugee Programme. To date, only one unaccompanied minor is being relocated to Ireland under the Programme.

We know that unaccompanied minors have been exposed to serious abuse. They have no schools to attend and many are being exploited by ruthless child traffickers. We know from media reports that children as young as eight have been found unaccompanied in the Calais Camp.

Tusla (the Child and Family Agency) has considerable experience meeting the needs of unaccompanied minors or separated children. Ireland is well-placed to play a central role in supporting the relocation of these children. We are calling on the Government to urgently act to protect these children.

    any people (children or otherwise) face arrest after 2pm today if they don’t have a yellow star pinned to their chest.

        Soros is who the conspiracy-minded, ‘a little knowledge is a dangerous thing’, swivel-eyed loons of the left blame for their NWO hallucinations.

        Coincidentally, he happens to be a successful Jewish businessman, but I’m sure that has NOTHING to do with it.

          You mean the loons supporting Trump? No those boys are right wing. They’re YOUR guys

    “Demolishment”?!? Nonetheless, that is a disgraceful situation. The French should be ashamed.

      Why? They have offered them asylum in France. If they don’t want it, they will be arrested as illegals, which they are. Is allowing the disgrace that was the jungle something better?

    Jeez.. ye love the old shame on here. Everyone should feel ashamed. I think this term began to take real hold around 2008-2009. Now it is applied to every facet of life and everyone is told that they should be ashamed. Surely this is something that went away with the church? or are the oppressed becoming the oppressors as the cycle of hate continues?

    Deport them all back home. France is safe, they just want to get to the UK for benefits. This is a disgrace.

          Not really, it doesn’t cost that much overall, refugees contribute a lot to society after they settle and frankly, they’ve been through hell. It’s the least the UK can do and the least I can do.

          Now, snark that if you will buy I don’t give a fupp.

          1. Dόn Pídgéόní

            Funny, I don’t give a fupp what the dunderhead bumbaclarts of BS, so desperate scrap together even a half way decent troll might think.

            Sorry tops, I don’t need one anyway.
