Unaccompanied Child Migrants 'Grappling Hook Kids' Numbers Explodes 600 Per Cent In Four Years
The number of unaccompanied child migrants arriving in Denmark in the past fours months alone now exceeds the annual totals for the years 2011, 2013, and 2013 respectively.
According to the Danish Broadcasting Corporation (DR), information released by the Immigration section of the Danish Foreign Affairs Department shows the number of unaccompanied child migrants arriving in Denmark “exploded” in 2015, soaring to 2,050. More under-18-year-olds arrived in each of November and December than in the whole of any of 2011, 2012 and 2013, and will bring to mind the case of Sweden's “grappling hook children” --- who, similarly to the “anchor babies” phenomenon in the United States, gain residency rights and then bring their other family members into the country on the basis of “family reunification”.
The Danish government states: “...family reunification will only be granted to other family members if turning down the application would go against Denmark's international obligations, such as the European Human Rights Convention, article 8, concerning the right to a family life.
Predominantly of Syrian, Afghan and Eritrean origin, preliminary figures for last year show that about 480 child migrants arrived in Denmark in November, and a further 350 in December. In the first week of 2016 a further 80 followed them into the country.
In contrast, 282 child migrants arrived in the whole of 2011, 355 in 2012 and 354 in 2013.
The exponential growth started in 2014 when 818 recorded as entering Denmark. Then, signifying the growing European migrant crisis, somewhere in the region of 2,050 arrived in 2015.
