Due to popular demand the Question of the Week has returned.

This week the question is regarding failed asylum seekers, most notably children of failed asylum seekers. Is enough being done to protect children of families who have failed in their bid for asylum?

Evidence of dawn raids on family homes where children have been detained for hours and evidence of children being deported during their exam periods at school among other bad practices. A great TV show to watch is the Glasgow Girls which really highlighted the plight children have to go through when their family fails in an asylym bid.

Is enough being done to protect children of failed asylum seekers?

Very good question CS, I'm not really sure what the solution is but you can't just ignore it because there's children involved, otherwise you then have to ask whether criminals should go to prison as it hurts their families etc etc.

I never watched Glasgow Girls and wouldn't use it as a yardstick as undoubtedly parts of it where dramatised etc. At the end we have to trust that the people in high places are doing the correct jobs and that people have failed in their bid for asylum for a good reason.

Very very difficult situation for all involved and I'm just glad I don't have to make that choice.

Glasgow Girls is a true story based on a group of school girls who successfully stopped their friend being deported when she was taking her exams. They actually won the best political movement award in 2005 for their campaign on the issue.

Personally I do not believe that children should be deported during exam time, it is basically screwing up a child's education. I believe that if children are entering their exam periods then no deportation should take place until after exams have finished.

Afternoon again CS, the problem with Glasgow Girls is it's BASED on a true story, most films/tv shows based on true stories have parts embellished or made up all together, hence why I wouldn't quote them as fact, but I get what your saying Wink

Again a very good point about exam time and shock horror I actually agree with you that there's no reason the children can't be allowed to finish their exams and if need be deported afterwards. We're constantly told our education system is a very good one (Whistle ) so what better way to help a family that might struggle otherwise PLUS a lot of money has been spent by the government to get to that point so why waste it.

It was asked for on his youtube channel Toppy Wink

To be fair to CS I thought it was a pretty good question (bar the using a tv programme bit)
