Parents and students began to express concern after a new student from Iran, appearing to be a grown man, enrolled in their local high school.
Siavash, an Iranian immigrant and alleged 15-year-old boy, joined students at Stoke High School in Suffolk, England. He was born in Iran and fled to the United Kingdom with his 12-year-old little brother.
After arriving in the U.K., Siavash, claiming to be 15 years old, was granted asylum with his little brother.
Britain’s generous asylum system grants children a free education and free housing in some cases.
Fortunately, students were more keen than the officials who granted Siavash asylum. They immediately realized that the 15-year-old was actually full-grown man.

“As soon as he started at the school, we all thought he looked far too old,” one of his classmates said.
Siavash stood over 6 feet tall, grew facial hair, and even had a noticeable receding hairline in the right light.
“You could see the shadow of his beard on his face. He was wearing glasses, but they did not look prescription. It was almost as if he had them to make himself look younger,” the classmate recalled.
“How is there a 30-year-old man in our maths class?” another student asked.
Parents were also asking questions about the mysterious Iranian immigrant, but they were “dismissed as racist,” according to Daily Mail.
“I went in (to) complain but I was fobbed off. They are deluded and seem more worried about how the bloke might feel,” one parent said.
If it was obvious to students and parents that he was a grown man, it should have been obvious to the officials who granted him asylum. There even seemed to be photos of the man online with facial hair.
“In one of the pictures I’ve seen of him, he has more of a beard than I do. I don’t want my kids there any longer until he is out,” another parent said.
Thankfully, the man didn’t hurt anybody and was eventually pulled out of school. However, this isn’t the first time a fully-grown migrant has claimed to be underage to get benefits in a Western country.
Situations like this will continue to occur as long as background checks are too lenient and political correctness is taken too far. It shouldn’t be considered “racist” to ask a migrant about their age.
Somebody should have spoken up and said that the migrant was obviously not a teenager before he was allowed to step foot in a school.
