LATEST NEWS - January 2014

BETRAYING THE UNEMPLOYED

Four TD's put a parliamentary question to the Minister for Justice which received written reply on Dec. 17th 2013. The four T D's wanted the Minister to bring in a scheme to regularise illegal immigrants.

They were:

Eric Byrne (Labour)

John Lyons (Labour)

Finian McGrath (Independent)

Patrick Nulty (Independent)

There has been an estimate of 30,000 illegals in Ireland. They must be, in most cases, illegally employed; they cannot live on fresh air. The jobs they hold should be held by the thousands of Irish or legal immigrants who are unemployed.

Those of them who are self-employed compete with and probably undercut the many self-employed currently struggling to survive.

Yet, these TD's say that those people, who do not even have the right to be in the country, should be told they may hold those jobs.

Will they have the gall to ask for votes at the next election from the unemployed, the workers whose wages they drive down and the self-employed they push out of business.

THE HIDDEN COSTS OF FOREIGN STUDENTS

It is to be hoped that recent media coverage of foreign students in Ireland will have focused the minds of the public on an aspect of international education often overlooked.

That is that they may work 20 hours a week in term-time and 40 during college holidays. Many breach these limits and work far more. Many do not "study" at all.

How many jobs does this take from Irish and legal immigrants who must be on Jobseekers Allowance instead? The government never takes this into account when they put out the bloated figure for the amount of money "brought into" the country by foreign students.

It was chilling to hear David O' Grady, C.E.O. of Marketing English in Ireland , say on News at One ( 15 May)  that; "In Brazil, Ireland is seen as an immigration destination" because of student visa abuse.

ICP regularly gets emails complaining of "students" working full time  and complaining that they have reported this to the authorities but nothing has been done.
