Should Jersey welcome child refugees?

Lord Dubs, a Labour peer and former child refugee wants Jersey to set a leading example by doing its bit for incredibly vulnerable children.

It's fantastic to see the people of Jersey show concern for the welfare of child refugees. It's very important to address people's concerns about the challenges involved in welcoming refugees, but I know from personal experience that these children can make truly positive contributions to their new homes. By committing to welcome some children, Jersey will have a life changing impact on these young lives.
