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.
