One of the biggest challenges governments in Europe grappling with the continent’s migration surge is the near-total inability to vet and verify any information about the people coming in.
Beginning in 2015, authorities in places like France, Germany, and the United Kingdom noticed that many male migrants appeared to be misinforming authorities about their age. With most refugees pouring in with little to no documentation to speak of, it’s easy to see how they would run into difficulties here.
Instead of addressing the problem, however, pro-migrant media sources like Al Jazeera are running with it — evidenced by this screenshot from one of its recent publications.
If you took away the headline, how old would you assume the man in this picture is? Does he appear to be 16? 17? 18 maybe?
Realistically, he looks far closer to being 35.
Reporting like this side-steps the real problem with Europe’s immigration crisis. Authorities are overwhelmed by the surge in nomadic behavior, and aren’t allowed to take any action as a result for fear of breaking some core tenant of political correctness.
