Save Lone Child Refugees in Europe
Sunday 12th February 2017
Religious leaders joined Lord Dubs in his petition presentation on Saturday after the archbishop of Canterbury warned that halting the initiative would see more children being trafficked, exploited and killed
Calais Action urges MPs to pass the revised Dubs Amendment which was voted through the Lords on the 26th April by a majority of 107 votes, in order to save the lone child refugees in Europe
The Secretary of State must as soon as possible after the passing of this Act, make arrangements to relocate to the United Kingdom and support a specified number of unaccompanied refugee children from other countries in Europe
On Monday the Dubs Amendment was narrowly voted down in the Commons. The new amendment is as follows:
“Unaccompanied refugee children: relocation and support.
(1) The Secretary of State must, as soon as possible after the passing of this Act, make arrangements to relocate to the United Kingdom and support a specified number of unaccompanied refugee children from other countries in Europe.
(2) The number of children to be resettled under subsection (1) shall be determined by the Government in consultation with local authorities.
(3) The relocation of children under subsection (1) shall be in addition to the resettlement of children under the Vulnerable Persons Relocation Scheme”
PLEASE sign and pressure your local council to accept refugee children from Europe
If you share this concern for these abandoned vulnerable children, please consider signing the petition
Perhaps, you could also contact our local MP, Brandon Lewis
