Ireland struggles to deal with migrant influx across UK border
 



Ireland is furious about Britain's immigration mess | The Spectator

 

 

London's plan to deport asylum seekers to Rwanda has many already inside the UK fearing for their safety, leading many to cross the Irish border.

 

Ireland's government has moved to remove tents occupied by asylum seekers in central Dublin as tensions over immigration continue to rise.

 

After many weeks of concern and complaints about the encampment, the area around the International Protection office in the Irish capital was cleared by police.

 

However, many of the asylum seekers sleeping there simply moved 200 metres down the road to a nearby canal due to a scarcity of accommodation.

 

Ireland has recently seen an influx of people seeking international protection from the UK, with asylum seekers coming across the open land border with Northern Ireland to escape the controversial British policy of deporting asylum seekers to Rwanda so their claims can be processed offshore.

 

The Irish Government has said it has plans to change legislation in the coming weeks, giving it the legal authority to return illegal immigrants to the UK.


However, ministers from London have declined to engage with the proposal, and there are doubts that changing the law will change the reality on the ground.
