The whole issue of asylum seekers - most of which make their way across all of Europe to reach the bonanza of taxpayer paid benefits the British government generously doles out to them - has totally gone out of control in Great Britain. Couple that with an influx in supposed illegal immigrant and asylum seeking children/orphans who Social Services are then "duty bound" to provide care and you have the perfect scenario for paedophiles to descend upon Britain and victimize it's vulnerable children.
In this case Social Services had a gut feeling that this bogus asylum seeker was posing as a minor/boy and was really much older than his stated age of 13. You can be sure that political correctness gagged them from investigating these concerns as being called a "racist" is the death knell for any Social Service worker (or others). Unfortunately for the children, these care workers are supposed to protect, are then left exposed to the enemy being in their midst - as in this instance where this despicable paedophile used his placement in a children's home to rape a young girl living in the same home.

AN asylum-seeker has been arrested after the alleged rape of a young girl from a children’s home – where he had been placed after apparently lying about his age.
The Afghan presented himself to Birmingham Social Services and claimed he was a 13 year-old minor, but staff suspected that he was really over the age of 18.
He was placed at the council-run children’s home after producing medical evidence at an immigration hearing which seemingly backed his claims of being just a boy.
But the Afghan was later arrested following the suspected rape of a 13 year-old girl from the care home – and police found an immigration card which appeared to confirm that he was really 19.
Social services have now begun an investigation after the asylum-seeker was quizzed about the suspected sex attack, a case which has seen another adult charged with rape.
“The Afghan presented himself some time ago as a minor, seeking asylum,” said a source. “He claimed to be 13 years old but from the outset social services had doubts.
“Yet if someone’s an asylum-seeker and a minor then social services are duty bound to look after them.
‘‘Birmingham social services’ experts were involved in challenging his claim that he was 13 at two immigration hearings and at one hearing he was legally declared an adult.
‘‘But at an appeal he produced a letter from a doctor claiming he had some characteristics of a child, so the court had to accept he was a child.’’
The asylum-seeker is currently on police bail after being arrested on suspicion of the rape, which is alleged to have occurred in Birmingham last month.
