UK must follow EU countries in welcoming child refugees

There are currently around 5,000 unaccompanied child refugees in Greece. France has pledged to accept 400 of them, and several German states have expressed their willingness to take in some. Now, Finland’s Interior Minister Maria Ohisalo has said she also wants to see Finland welcome some of these children. It’s time for the UK to considering welcoming in some of these child refugees.
