Generalisations

Wasnt McDowell moving a bill last week which would result in expulsion of immigrant etc where they were proven to be involved in criminality in some shape or form?

Regardless, its unfortunate but "Nigerian" and "Fraud" almost go hand in hand in this type of article.
All generalisations are false except this one! Because there is huge unemployment among the very large population of well educated Nigerian people (many the graduates of Irish missionary schools by the way),that is a breeding ground for fraudsters who are clever enough to do con games.

I have asked many African taxi driver in Dublin what they did in Africa.Typically,most of them turned out to be Nigerians who worked as small traders (about 4), accountants (3),graduates and college dropouts in technical occupations like IT and business studies (10 plus).

Well fortunately asylum-seeker numbers here are at their lowest for ten years, so its less of a problem than in might otherwise be. But in reality, whats the solution to this?

1) We have international obligations in terms of asylum, that we can't go back on - so we can't "close the ports".

2) If the problem is people claiming in both the UK and the ROI, do we want to start policing the border with the North? Huge political and resource implications there.

3) So given that the Irish are hardly amateurs themselves when it comes to welfare fraud, surely the solution is to tighten up the policing of welfare fraud in general - along with providing extra resources to the asylum process, so that decisions can be made faster, and the need for asylum seekers to get their hands on money would therefore be less.
Yes indeed some people tend to forget this.

Speeding up the asylum process wouldn't suit

Yes indeed some people tend to forget this.
The speeding up of asylum wouldn't suit the legal profession specialists in asylum cases,the lazy justice department civil service with lead in its arse and the minority of racist bigots among us.

And why should any cases from Nigeria be tolerated for a second? It is not a conflict zone apart from occasional sectarian clashes between Muslims and Christians. A Nigerian told me that people can move with ease around the large country in search of work.

Hang on, 3000 a month. How is this possible? How does anyone claim 3000?
