Sir Andrew Green of Migration Watch UK is honoured
ICP is delighted to see Sir Andrew Green, founder of Migration Watch UK, honoured by being raised to the peerage.
In a democratic society, all areas of public policy must be open to debate.
For a long time in the UK, as is still the case in Ireland, immigration policy, unlike any other policy such as education or health policy, was a taboo subject for debate. Only one viewpoint was accepted.
Sir Andrew Green has served democracy well by changing this. When will Ireland learn to fill in the gap in our democracy?
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.

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.
