ICP AGM 2018
At the recent AGM of Immigration Control Platform the following motions were passed;
1. Immigration Control Platform deplores the shamelessness with which our government can say that of the extra one million of population expected by 2040, half a million will be immigrants (Simon Coveney, News at One, 16 February) and believes that no other government in Europe would dare to say such a thing to its citizens.
2. Immigration Control Platform, while acknowledging that Foreign Direct Investment makes a valuable contribution to the Irish economy, notes recent commentary that a small group of multinationals has effectively "captured" the institutions of the state, and urges the government to take notice of recent warnings from the National Competitiveness Council and the National Treasury Management Agency that we urgently need to pivot from that position towards indigenous business.
