Tipp FM hosted a debate this morning over TD Noel Grealish’s remarks about economic migrants abusing the asylum system to move to Ireland and “sponge off the system”. Former Tipperary Senior Hurler Timmy Hammersley disagreed with Grealish’s remarks but caller Thomas felt differently. He said that the key point here was that “there are people presenting as asylum seekers who are clearly economic migrants.”
“That is a fact if you look at the data.”
In 2016, Eurostat revealed that Ireland fails 90% of asylum claimants as non-genuine.
