Ireland to accept 272 migrants per 20,000 under EU quotas

Ireland is to take 272 migrants per 20,000 under a mandatory resettlement programme for migrants proposed by the European Commission today.

However, the Government will have a choice as to whether it will participate in a separate relocation scheme which seeks to redistribute migrants who have already arrived in the European Union across the bloc.

Under EU law, Ireland and Britain have an automatic opt-out on most EU justice and home affairs legislation, which covers migration and asylum issues, but in practice it opts in to many of these measures.
