Ireland is not immune from the migrant situation.

Coming soon to Ireland… cultural enrichment.

Well we had a good run in this country. However, much like every other European country, we have a moral duty to destroy ourselves for… reasons, which are never clearly explained.

From Irish Examiner

A sharp increase in the number of asylum seekers from Pakistan and Bangladesh led to more than a doubling of applications for refugee status in Ireland last year.

“They’re just trying to flee from the brutal civil wars in Pakistan and Bangladesh.”

Civil wars seem to exist in every single black and brown run country on the planet, which is why people from every single black and brown run country are coming to white run countries, because they’re the only safe countries left apparently.

Red = Civil war zone, Grey = Safe

The Office of the Refugee Applications Commissioner said applicants from those two countries, most of whom had previously been resident in the UK, accounted for half of all new cases during 2015 as the number of applications rose to their highest level since 2008.

“They’re just trying to escape from the brutal civil war in the UK.

I guess the map above needs to be updated to have the UK in red instead of grey.

Justice Minister Frances Fitzgerald expressed concern last year about the trend of young men on student visas in the UK travelling to Ireland to prolong their stay within the EU.

She’s right to be concerned. Unless these people have something to contribute to our country, they shouldn’t be allowed to remain here like that. Our own people and their needs come first.

Pakistanis accounted for 41% of all asylum seekers in 2015 and Bangladeshis almost 9%. The other main countries of original of applicants were Albania, Nigeria and India.

“They’re also trying to flee from the brutal civil wars in Albania, Nigeria, and India.”

In its latest annual report, the ORAC said it received applications from 3,276 asylum seekers in 2015 compared to 1,448 the previous year — an increase of 126%. Males accounted for four out of five of all cases.

“Women and children are fleeing the warzones, while the courageous men stay back to bravely fight to defend their homelands until it’s safe for the women and children to return home.”

It was also revealed that a number of refugees were considered for exclusion from the asylum process last year because of suspected links to serious crimes such as crimes against humanity or war crimes.

But that’s not a problem. The magical European air and soil will alter their personalities and turn them in to good, hardworking European citizens, who will work hard, pay our pensions, and will use their superior intellect and creativity to cure HIV and build cities on mars. They’ll surely integrate just fine.

The number of refugee status cases fully processed by the ORAC rose by 46% last year to 1,552. The organisation also finalised 1,480 files relating to subsidiary protection.

However, the commissioner, David Costello, said the extent of the workload meant there were still 2,582 cases awaiting completion at the end of last year.

The rise in number of new applicants pushed the average waiting time for a substantive interview with asylum seekers to over 30 weeks.

But don’t worry, we’re the ones footing the bill to feed and accommodate them during those 30 weeks.

Over 2,900 sets of fingerprints were sent to the EU’s asylum fingerprint database for examination. Tests showed 231 refugees had already sought asylum in other EU member states.

But obviously those racist countries rejected them because they have an irrational hatred towards the colour of their skin. They couldn’t have possibly had any legitimate reason to reject them. That’s a crazy idea and if it makes sense to you, we should probably have the “Thinkpol” visit you during the night and take you down to room 101, and get you to wear this rat cage on your head until you stop thinking those “doubleplusungood” thoughts.

“Don’t worry, your insanity will be cured soon enough.”

A new more streamlined process for dealing with applications for asylum is set to come into operation this year following the publication of the International Protection Bill in December which will result in decisions relating to refugee status and subsidiary protection taken at the same time.

The number of family reunification applications also increased by 63% last year — from 167 to 272, while 33 applications for refugee status were received from unaccompanied minors.

Sometimes, these “unaccompanied minors” are a lot older than we’re led to believe.

Mr Costello welcomed a significant reduction in the number of legal challenges to their decisions, which he attributed to the quality processes and training.

The commissioner said last year was also very challenging for his office for dealing with the Dublin III Regulation — the EU’s system for determining the member state responsible for the examination of an individual’s asylum application.

The first safe country they reach is responsible, and Ireland is obviously not it. Even if they were fleeing a war for real, they have to pass through countless other safe countries before reaching Ireland. It’s simply impossible to reach Ireland first from the countries these people are coming from. Therefore, their application in Ireland is illegitimate.

Over 2,900 sets of fingerprints were sent to the EU’s asylum fingerprint database for examination. Tests showed 231 refugees had already sought asylum in other EU member states.

Wow literally repeating a previous paragraph word for word. Sloppy journalism if I do say so myself.

Mr Costello said his office anticipated processing some 2,500 asylum seekers being relocated to Ireland from Greece and Italy as a result of the refugee crisis.

“They’re trying to escape from the brutal civil wars in Italy and Greece.”

Separately, the Refugee Appeals Tribunal said the number of hearings before it in 2015 more than doubled with the tribunal sitting on 799 cases last year — up from 367 in 2014. It also issued rulings in 640 appeals — up 151%, while there are 1,675 cases awaiting a decision.

And no doubt, it will just get worse and worse as time goes on. We’ve been relatively sheltered here in Ireland so far, thanks to our distance, and the fact that we don’t share a land border with any of the worse effected countries in Europe. I wouldn’t be surprised though if we did start seeing similar problems before long, unless big changes in how the situation is being handled in other countries happen very soon.

  1. Everyone seems to be missing the point with the refugee situation and they are all looking around for someone to blame. Let me put your mind at rest: the refugee problem was deliberately caused by the US with help from the European states. Why do you think Angela Merkel is prepared to be so unpopular in welcoming the asylum seekers? Those she is welcoming are doctors, engineers, accountants, veterinarians etc..
    The US government and Europe are under the total control of bankers and large multinational companies and companies don’t think like human beings. They want cheap labour and if European countries are flooded with cheap skilled workers they are happy. What happens next is that the wages of those who live in the particular country will drop – happy again! This is exactly what is happening?
