Children of atheists and of minority faiths are discriminated against

Many immigrants feel pressured to allow their children to be taught in Catholic schools to ensure that they later successfully apply to become Irish citizens, whatever their own beliefs, it has been declared.

Some immigrant evangelical Christians let their children receive Holy Communion to help “stay in the country”, said Pastor Nick Park, executive director at Evangelical Alliance Ireland,

In applying for citizenship, they have “to produce evidence that they are integrating well into Irish society, which can include a letter from schools their children attend,” he said.

    So they are using Catholicism to let them “stay in the country.” That indicates they are in danger of being deported, therefore they should be investigated.
