Abuse of the Irish Asylum System
by Minister for Justice Michael Mc Dowell T.D. (7 June 2005)
"A small but well placed minority of commentators have sought to create the impression that Ireland's treatment of asylum seekers is harsh and unfair. They have consistently concealed the real facts from the Irish people. Moreover, they have sought to create the impression that anyone who points out the true situation is engaging in political racism. They hint at international comparisons which do not exist.
They refuse to address the very large abuse of asylum protection in Ireland. They claim to believe that it is wrong to point out what is happening lest it create prejudice against genuine asylum seekers. They are engaging in a form of verbal intimidation of those who would tell the truth."

Do We Need Mass Immigration?
by Anthony Browne
Publisher: Civitas: Institute for the Study of Civil Society (2002)
This is an excellent book and its format makes it very useful for journalists, researchers or anyone engaged in the immigration debate. Each chapter takes a particular argument of the mass immigration propagandists and counters it forensically. Very highly recommended.

Dear Mama… An African Refugee Writes Home
by Abel Ugba
Publisher: Minerva Press (1999)
This is a thinly-fictionalised work based on the experiences of the author as an asylum-seeker in Europe. Paul Cullen, reviewing it in the Irish Times, called it a "warts-and-all" account of the "asylum game", the rules of which, he acknowledges can be summarised as: say nothing, but if you do talk, lie.
It would, as Cullen says, "make the hair stand up on the back of a Department of Justice official's neck". It should do the same to anyone who cares about the future of Ireland.
