AGM 2015 PRESS RELEASE
At the recent AGM of Immigration Control Platform the following motions
1 ICP calls on the Government not to renew the Irish naval operation in the
Mediterranean once the L.E. Samuel Beckett has completed its deployment, as
they are effectively assisting the people-smugglers and thereby putting
further lives in danger.
2 ICP deplores the Department of Justice's whole-scale granting of leave to
remain to those who fail the protection process, in what is effectively an
under-the-radar amnesty, and calls on the Department to allow leave to
remain to failed applicants only in the most exceptional circumstances.
