    Immigration: Enough of this nonsense about an "invasion" please.

    I put the following graphs together because I am so tired of hearing nonsense about:

    "...the numbers arriving...",
    or how people "... just want to remain majorities in their own lands...",
    or, "... You can't expect them to stand by and be replaced by invaders..."

    Enough of this imbecility, please. Enough. (Right click and open image in new tab to see graph legend).




    By the way, many countries, even countries such as Israel, have demonstrated that even with as high a proportion as 20% Muslim Arab in their population, they have little difficulty assimilating them in their society (and note these Israeli Muslims have developed sophisticated political parties and political representation and occupy positions of acclaim, including on its Supreme Court etc. And that's in the context of the Arab-Israeli conflict that of course impacts there).

    Of course the above shouldn't even need saying, but listening to some people on this forum, it seems, maybe you have to.

    So, what exactly is the issue? I might add that every single immigrant I ever, ever met here in Ireland had an intent to be a good Irish citizen and seemed to me to have developed a certain faithfulness, love even, for our land, and our way of life.

    Sure there might be a couple of isolated incidents, such as the gangs out in Balbriggan or Blanchardstown - but anyone growing up in Dublin in the 1980's and 1990's knows that bored kids congregating in gangs and causing a bit of trouble, has nothing to do with one's country of origin, colour of skin, religion, traditions, and so on. I for one well remember what Balbriggan and Blanchardstown were like in the 1980's and early 90's as regards marauding gangs of kids.

    Anyway, the main point is the illustration of the numbers I made. Can people comment on those numbers please with respect to how they equate to an "invasion"? Thanks.

    My main issues with immigration is that it is used to reduce wages and impacts massively on social provisions.

    Ireland has the second-lowest rate of granting asylum (13 per cent) across the EU and compared poorly to the EU average of 44 per cent over this period. The Department of Justice refused to provide 2017 data under Freedom of Information legislation citing that data would be available on Eurostat later this year.

    The glory years of the working man being richly rewarded for his labour are at an end? I refuse to believe it. If this is true then there can be only one group responsible........immigrants.

    It's the only logical conclusion. The the Irish working man and woman were always kings and queens upon pedestals and if nothing other than the arrival of immigrants takes place and the irish working man and woman are no longer the kings they once were then it must follow that immigrants are to blame.

    The argument is irrefutable. The logic without flaw.

    Game. Set. Match.

    Realistic by name, realistic by nature.
