Government considers proposal on undocumented migrants

Department of Justice officials are considering a proposal aimed at regularising the status of up to 20,000 undocumented migrants living and working in the Republic.

The proposal, drawn up by the Migrant Rights Centre of Ireland (MRCI) in consultation with Department of Justice officials, is described as a “once-off, time-bound regularisation scheme” which offers a “problem-solving solution to an unsustainable situation.”

Research indicates a large majority of the undocumented people living in the Republic entered the country legally on visas in recent years and subsequently became undocumented.

The most common nationalities among undocumented people living here include people from the Philippines, China, Mauritius,Brazil and Pakistan.

A spokesman for Minister for Justice Frances Fitzgerald said the proposal was being considered.

    These illegals should be deported at their own expense. This proposal is ludicrous and encourages others to remain in Ireland illegally when their visas expire.
