STRICTER IMMIGRATION LAWS FOR IRELAND
We, the undersigned, are asking the Irish government to review our lenient immigration laws. The landscape of Ireland has changed too rapidly, too drastically. We are sending funds overseas to developing countries while also spending billions on asylum seekers here also since 2000.
Ireland has major difficulties regarding healthcare, education, housing and homelessness and we just wish the government to tackle these issues before thinking of helping overseas countries.
We also are aware the working group are submitting a report to the Oireactas in June, we would like to ask the government not to make Ireland more attractable to 'asylum seeking shoppers' by vastly improving asylum seekers lifestyles in Direct Provision. Instead we ask you to implement a single, fast track application with status approved or denied within 6 months and deportations to be carried out promptly for failed asylum seekers.
We ask that the government not grant asylum seekers the opportunity to work or to access free 3rd level education as this will make a farce of our fair study and work visa systems and which will increase our numbers of immigrants coming to Ireland under the guise of asylum seekers. Also that the Irish government have stricter policies in relation to granting non nationals Irish citizenship.
We call on the government to restrict the number of mosques being built in future in Ireland as they change Irish landscape too much which can have an impact on our tourism.
We call on the government to extend the 2 year working rule of non Irish citizens to social welfare entitlements to 5 years. We also ask that offshore processing be considered when processing asylum seekers to eradicate the threat of terrorists entering Ireland as asylum seekers. This would be in the greatest interest of all Irish citizens which is the primary role of our government.
This petition is open to people from all over the world as tourism is vital to our economy and as such, we feel it's important to hear views about how fast Ireland is changing from people overseas and to give tourists a chance to speak on this topic.
