    We have the Minister for Justice taking in 36 unaccompanied minors from Greece under the Irish Refugee Protection Programme.
    Government agrees to accept 36 unaccompanied minors from Greece | Irish Examiner

    The Irish Refugee Protection Programme says it has "completed its commitment to relocate people from Greece. The second phase of the programme has now begun with increased commitments on resettlement and the commencement of the new Humanitarian Admission Programme."

    It operates under discretionary Ministerial powers, meaning that we are under no obligation to take anyone, but are volunteering to do so. It must be all that over-capacity in child services we hear so much about that prompted the minister to do this.

    Goodby to old Gaelic Ireland.

    RTE lunchtime news has just interviewed the delighted recipient of a local authority home. Yep. You have guessed it.

    Asylum and refugees: How Ireland compares to the rest of the world
    Ireland refuses asylum to 90pc of applicants - Independent.ie

    Two-thirds of failed asylum seekers had used false identities - Independent.ie
    That last link shows that quite a lot of these people have already claimed asylum in another country, often using another identity. (This can be checked using the EU-wide ORAC fingerprinting and identification system.)
    "The official added that more than 80 people who had claimed asylum here as Somalis had previously been granted a UK visa using a Tanzanian identity."
    Correct.
    Those are the figures.
    I also know many immigrants very well
    From the middle east.
    2 have personally told me they claimed asylum simply to stay in the country to them it's just like cheating the dole ir something akin to that. They don't worry in the least about this country it is simply a place to get what you can from. End off

    I don’t blame the immigrants for chancing their arm . I blame the governments systems for encouraging them to chance their arms .

    Exactly. If I were from a poor but absolutely safe African country, it would be a perfectly rational choice to come here, knowing full well that my chances of staying here for many years are actually quite high. My chances increase dramatically if I have a child here while my claim is repeatedly appealed, and once the child is in school all manner of well-intentioned people will line up to help prevent my deportation.
