UK Spends $200 Million On REFUGEES While Leaving 100,000 British Kids HOMELESS
The UK is clearly prioritizing immigrants over citizens these days. Just in time for Christmas, over 100,000 British children are facing homelessness, while local authorities are spending millions to help foreign refugees.
It has been revealed that the growing number of lone refugee children in the UK has cost local authorities more than £200 million, just weeks after a leading charity warned such councils are failing British families, and 100,000 British kids face being homeless this Christmas.
New figures suggest that over the past five years ten councils have spent close to £200 million on lone children claiming asylum, with £36.9 million spent in the last year alone on 1,168 unaccompanied children in the UK. The Suncalculates that that works out at £31,500 spent per child per year.
Individual councils, who are also responsible for housing British children and families, largely pick up the bill for unaccompanied migrant children, not central government.
At the beginning of this month, the homelessness charity Shelter warned that councils are increasingly being forced to move British families into cramped bed and breakfasts and hostels.
Because of such failings, they estimate that more than 100,000 British children will wake up homeless on Christmas morning this year. That number has been consistently rising, up nearly 25 per cent on Christmas four years ago.
It looks like every country is turning into Sweden, where immigrants get preferential treatment over citizens.
