A startling new report has found that nearly two-thirds of refugees claiming to be children who arrived in the UK were in fact over 18.
Some 65% of asylum seekers who were assessed after claiming to be children were judged to be adults, according to the report by immigration watchdog David Bolt.
The Home Office received 2,952 asylum applications from unaccompanied children in the year up to June 2017.
Officials believed applicant were lying about their age in 705 of those cases, with 402 (65%) found to be adults.
There have been 12,942 disputes over the ages of child asylum seekers since 2006, according to Home Office figures.
Nearly 6,000 of those disputes found the asylum seeker to be over 18 in this period.
A Home Office spokesman said: ‘After consultation with stakeholders we published revised guidance on age assessments and we have committed to produce more child-friendly information in a range of languages to help children better understand the asylum system.’

No wonder you are accused of being uninformed.
You're strawmanning because no influent person or organisation said that all refugees claiming to be children were children, or defended "completely open border" and called racists all opponents to this non-existent policy.
The reason why these people in particular were assessed is most likely because they didn't appear to match their age. Among the rest the percentage can only be expected to be much lower.
Can't access that. Anything else ?
I suspect we saw the same things but you overinterpretated them.
I accuse you of exaggerating and overstating what happened.
There was a large support among journalists and politicians for a certain tolerance towards refugees, especially in Germany and Sweden. But very few of them defended actually completely open borders (even Merkel when she temporarily stopped the controls at the border didn't accept all everyone without distinction) or accused people advocating harsher selection of racism, and those who did belonged to marginal organisations.
In my country, the nationalist party and it's leaders are only ever called populist. And the traditional right also freely calls for restrictions to immigration.
402 of 2952 isn't 65%. It's 13.6%.
Beyond that these are pulled from cases where the home office suspects that the applicant is lying - which means that if they are lying they face consequences. The government doesn't just throw it's hands up and go "oh well".
>12,942 disputes over the ages of child asylum seekers
Either whoever wrote this is literally retarded or they literally only looked at cases where someone said the person was over 18 and half of the time that person was correct.
That's like saying that if 50% of people who got pulled over for speeding were in fact speeding must mean that 50% of people in general speed.
