At a packed community meeting in Oughterard last night, TD Noel Grearish told the room that economic migrants are abusing the asylum system to move to Ireland and “sponge off the state”. Meanwhile he complained that Irish people are often on the housing list for seven to ten years. He also told the room that he didn’t believe any persecuted Christians that would be coming to Oughterard. He said a big city could absorb 300 asylum seekers but Oughterard didn’t have the infrastructure.
He asked the community to work together and he would help ensure any asylum plans for the town do not go ahead.
According to Eurostat in 2016, only 10% of asylum requests in Ireland are recognised as genuine but in 2017 an ESRI study revealed that 80% of deportation orders against failed asylum seekers are never implemented.
