LATEST PRESS RELEASE

17 October 2019

AGM 2019 PRESS RELEASE

At the recent AGM of Immigration control Platform the following motions were passed

1. Assuming that the decision to recommend permission to remain  made in the International Protection Office cannot depend on the degree to which the deciding officer has a bleeding heart but must be based on some Department of Justice guidelines other than the very loose criteria in section 49 of the 2015 Act, those guidelines should be made such as to make permission to remain for those who are refused asylum or subsidiary protection a very rare occurrence.

2. Immigration Control Platform deplores the regression in the area of statistics available to the Irish public in in recent years concerning the numbers granted either asylum or subsidiary protection and seeks the disaggregation of the current figures which combine protection grants and permission to remain, so that the public may know how many applicants who have failed the protection process per se are nevertheless allowed to remain.

3. Immigration Control Platform deplores the fact that two effective amnesties for overstaying student visa holders, amounting to over 5,000 people, have now been granted; one by Minister Alan shatter in 2012 and one by Minister Charlie Flanagan in 2018 and calls on the minister to ensure that this never happens again.

Message sent from ICP to Minister Charlie Flanagan on 4th October 2019

Minister,

Under no circumstances should Ireland agree to mandatory or "automatic" burden-sharing of rescued migrants as is suggested for Tuesday's EU Home Affairs meeting. If we wish to help Italy let us help her by helping her to REPEL the invasion of her shores, if she needs that help.

If we wish to help Greece let us help her in her planned deportation of 10, 000 in any way we can, financially or otherwise.

The idea that any one of the half billion people who live in the EU can live here and it is none of our business may be the outrageous price of EU membership, but the idea that the EU will dictate who we let in from OUTSIDE the EU is a bridge too far.
