French “generosity” generates a “call for air” – RT in French

Unaccompanied minors flock to France because of the generous welcome reserved for them in the territory according to the director of judicial protection of young people of the Ministry of Justice, heard by parliamentarians.

The “generosity” of the care of unaccompanied foreign minors generates a “breath of fresh air” in migratory flows to France, estimated on September 8 an official from the Ministry of Justice, heard by the parliamentary commission of inquiry on migrations.

“The Ministry of the Interior is right to be vigilant on the air intake that our child protection system constitutes, both in a flow logic, but above all because we have to measure the course migration of these children, who are sent because we know that Europe protects children, [et qui arrivent] smashed, ”said Charlotte Caubel, director of judicial protection of young people (DPJJ) of the Ministry of Justice.

She then added: “It is our responsibility to pay attention to this specific draft which puts minors in danger. […] not to be naive in our generosity and therefore not to say that any person arriving and claiming to be a minor must be protected, enter into the mechanisms [réservés aux enfants]. “

Indignant protests from parliamentarians interviewing him were then heard, including that of the elected LREM Stella Dupont: “I can no longer hear this term of air intake which does not correspond to reality. ” Charlotte Caubel therefore clarified the issue of care for unaccompanied minors (unaccompanied minors). The stake, according to her, would be that “adults do not benefit from this protection, except to drown our devices”.

And to deplore: “When my educators spend two years taking care of people who will end up giving their identity and that they are 25 or 28 years old, it is energy that they do not put for the real ones. minors. “

Around 9,500 unaccompanied minors were placed in 2020, almost half as much as in 2019 (16,760, or -43%), due in particular to the drop in migratory flows linked to Covid, according to figures from the DPJJ. Launched in May at the initiative of the Libertés et Territoires (LT) composite group, the parliamentary committee of inquiry on migration is due to hand in its work in November.
