Thousands of ‘minors’ arrive in France, some aided by virtue-signallers

A virtue-signalling French school teacher "adopted" what appears to be a 30-year-old adult man posing as "16-year-old refugee" to live with her and her four daughters in their home.

    In the summer of 2018, hundreds of young migrants from sub-Saharan Africa arrived in Bayonne, a town situated only 30km from the Spanish border. Some of them were welcomed by local families.

    Ulrith, a Cameroonian “minor aged 16”, was welcomed by Stéphanie and Pierre, parents of four young daughters.

    After two and a half years on the migration route through Nigeria, Niger, Algeria, Morocco and Spain, Ulrith is however determined to travel the last kilometers to the French capital.

    “We never imagined that we would welcome a migrant one day,” said Pierre, Stéphanie’s husband, laughing. But Ulrith has still not been recognized as a minor, even though Stephanie is helping him with the administrative formalities.

    The “teenager” who looks much closer to a 30-year-old adult, must prove that he is under 18 to stay within the Dublin rule. The fingerprints of Ulrith were registered in Spain, according to the Dublin agreement, so his asylum application depends on the Iberian Peninsula.

    “Is it legal to welcome him? We did not ask ourselves the question,” the French family admitted.

    The odds are that Ulrith was in one of the recent migrant groups who illegally jumped the border in Spain.

    Ulrith left Cameroon, “without being really threatened” he said. He apparently could not be safe in neighboring Nigeria either, a country with the largest GDP in all of Africa, and nor could he find refuge in Chad or Niger – which just adopted a law to protect and assist Africans fleeing violence, floods and droughts.

    Fourteen thousand foreign minors were welcomed in France in 2018, as opposed to 2 555 in 2013. When they arrive, educators must give them an age, which will depend their fate eventually.

    A process has been put in place with the massive arrival of minors in the last two years. According to the Ministry of Justice, 95 percent of these young people are boys, aged 16 on average. They come mainly from Guinea (29 percent), Côte-d’Ivoire (17 percent) and Mali (16 percent).

    They have five days to tell their story and convince the educators of their sincerity. After that, two scenarios emerge: either educators express their certainty about the given age, or they raise doubts.

    And in this second case, the department transmit the requests to the prosecutors, who often end up ordering bone radiographs that can lead to the prison and eviction.
