Child Asylum Seekers to be Deported by UK

Asylum seekers are never that far from the news and the recent election has not changed this in any way.  In fact a recent news story I read online has indicated that the UK Border Agency has new plans in store for people who have arrived in the UK from Afghanistan particularly to be returned there.

The main focus is on child asylum seekers who have not come to the UK with any relatives or parents.  But it would seem as if the UK is not the only European country with these kinds of plans in place.  Other countries have also decided to make moves in this direction, to ensure these children get back to their country of birth.

I think there will be mixed feelings about this move, which comes since the new coalition government has been installed in Downing Street.  The idea is that the number of asylum seekers coming into the UK will start to go down, and it ensures that children who are under the age of 18 will also be sent back if they have not come with parents.

The main issue with these moves is that they may not cater for the care of children in the right way.  It certainly seems to be a quick move but would it have happened anyway, regardless of who was in government, I wonder?

It remains to be seen how the situation turns out, and there are plans to set up centres to help these children reintegrate into their country when they return.  But will the centres turn out to be enough?

Here at St Matthew we provide accountancy advice and services for all those who require it in the UK.  Be sure to contact us to find out more.
