Britain has agreed to take 3000 refugee unaccompanied children. Should Britain take more? (discuss)
Britain To Take 3,000 Unaccompanied Children
Length: 3 pages (825 Words)
Syria has been experiencing brutal civil war with mass killings for four years now. It erupted due to anti-government protests, which the government responded with a massive crackdown, torturing and killing the protestors. This forced the protestors to form groups and fight the government. This has forced most of the citizens to evict the country and seek refuge in neighbouring countries. However, the camps near the Syrian borders have become overcrowded forcing other refugees to seek asylum in far countries such as Britain and United States, where they migrated in multitude. This has raised an alarm whether the country should take in more refugees after 3,000 unaccompanied children fled from Syria and moved to the country. In fact, it has created a crisis and has been termed as the worst ever encountered since World War II. This civil war does not seem to be ending soon; thus, the United Kingdom is expecting others to flee and migrate to their country. Thus, the United Kingdom government should agree to take the 3,000 unaccompanied children.
Agreeing to host these minors would be the best decision the United Kingdom government would have done over a long period. Mainly because these children they do not have any place or person to run to. In fact, this should be a matter of utmost urgency. This is because the government will help to protect the children and ensure their safety. According to the United States and the European Union definition, an unaccompanied child is one who is below the age of 18 and not in the hands of a parent or a legal guardian at the time of entry. Therefore, having travelled all the way from Syria, these minors are vulnerable to human traffickers, and they might end up being forced into drugs trade, child labour, and prostitution. Actually, young refugees are more vulnerable as compared to adult refugees.
Children are the future of tomorrow. The United Kingdom should not allow these great talents to get lost. In fact, they should take them in and nurture these great talents. These talents may be utilized in the future for the better of the country. Although some people are arguing these children will be a security threat to the nation, I think they should change their perspectives and view them people who will be productive in the near future. In addition, United Kingdom is in a better position because it has enough resources to take care of these minors. This increase the chances of the children growing up to be better persons in the near future and who knows may be they bring change to the current state of their native country.
