    The problem is that the majority of the refugees seem to be young men in their 20s is suspect to me making me think they are economic rather than endangered refugees.

I think it's more of a cultural thing. The overwhelming majority of these refugees come from societies where women are second class citizens. They often can't get educations, aren't allowed out without chaperones, and are there simply to raise children and make the tea. If people from these cultures are going to send someone to a foreign land to get jobs, be financially able to support themselves and clear the way to bring the rest of the family over, it's going to be a young male.
