An angry piece by Niall O'Dowd in his "Periscope" column for Irish Central.
Young Irish woman turned in to U.S. authorities by Irish immigrant support group - Boston-based Irish International Immigrant Center does the unspeakable
The girl in question - in the USA - breached the terms of her 12 month study/travel visa by working in a bar for extra money. She was also - quite properly - working for Irish Central at the time and made the mistake of writing about her experiences. The article was spotted and the US authorities informed.
An unusual - and surely rather petty - twist in the ongoing Irish immigrant situation - especially when it is looking as if some sort of deal will be done over the "illegal Irish".
Strictly speaking, of course, she did break her "contract" with the US Government. But was this just and should the Irish Government consider any future funding for the Irish International Immigrant Center?
