Direct Provision – Amnesty needed

Posted October 3rd, 2014

The system of direct provision for foreign nationals seeking asylum in Ireland was debated in the Dáil.

During my comments on the matter I called for an amnesty for all those in the system longer than four years.

I said that the system being allowed to remain in place for more than a decade was a form of institutional racism that shamed the Irish people.
