    Default 620,000 for work on the Refugee Appeals Tribunal.

    reading into the latest answer to a dail question on refugees & legal costs, I should but probably an not at the final bill over 5 years of 5.1m. One barrister alone says Shatter "received 623,862 for work on the appeals tribunal between 2008 and last year for 1,358 cases average (460 per case).

    Former Foreign Affairs Minister David Andrews received 260,363 in relation to 460 cases over the period. There is some money been made here on Appeals. I find it very high price for us to pay for this type of thing. Surely it is at entry immigration level that people wishing to move to Ireland should have papers in order or organised for them, and a judgement made on the spot or over a week or so. This has turned into a legal money maker for some. Thought we were broke.

    Apparently the number of "refugees" arriving here is now way down from its height during the boom. This proves that the great majority of these people were economic migrants. Many arrived for our gold plated welfare system.

    Ya because that's all they cost. After all those lawyers for their endless appeals and doctors for their children all do it pro bono. And when they are granted asylum they are entitled to the same benefits as someone working for 20 years recently layed off. Grow a brain ffs.

    Most don't get asylum. If they do, they're entitled to the same rights as anyone. That doesn't just apply in ireland.

    Since they can't work while their appeals are processed, how do you propose they pay for the doctor/food etc.

    You don't have the slightest idea what some of these people have gone through.

    But you just said all they get is 19 euro a week. You weren't going to bring up all the benefits in kind. And you also agree that the vast majority are bogus and only economic migrants seeing as how you say so many of their claims are rejected. Not that that means many are deported of course. Pam the scam cost us over a million euro in legal fees alone. What would that money do for your local community instead of spending it on bogus asylum seekers and fat cat lawyers.

    A completely ludicrous situation, just goes to show what a complete joke this “country” is. The only refugees that should be in this country are people sponsored by and sent here by the UN. All other “asylum seekers” etc should be detained at the point of entry and sent back to where they came from ASAP. We cannot afford to look after our own, and fat cat lawyers creaming it representing people who have no business here in the first place is just an added insult.

    In Ireland, there is far bigger issues to be tackled than the asylum seeker's card. Bankers love this, and so does politicians... (those the real criminals, the real bogus in this age) don't you think?
