The London Times is running a story about a band of foreign nationals who are attempting to enter Ireland under the false guise of being 'journalists'. They intend to raise money and campaign here for a 'No' vote in the referendum.

Entering the country under false pretexts to engage in work is illegal and these people can be deported. Does the 'No' campaign know about this?

I assume you reported it to the DOJ and the referendum commission before starting your thread on politics.ie.

It's as simple as this, don't open the door. I never answer the door to anyone I don't know. I know how I'm voting and I don't need to discuss it with a random stranger on my doorstep.

By the way, the thread title is misleading.

1) They are not illegal. They aren't even here yet to have any immigration status assigned to them.
2) They are not migrants. Migrant is a long term immigration term.

They are pretending to visit the other island for the royal wedding and will then sneak in here while the Garda Siochana isn't looking. Fiendishly clever!

That ICBR (the I stands for 'Irish') bunch that are picketing all over the place seem to be all British or South Africans, going by the accents in their videos.

First you say that they are being employed:
Illegal migrants employed to campaign for 'No' in referendum
and then you ask:
Does the 'No' campaign know about this?

If the no campaign hasn't employed them, then who is employing them?

It's your claim that someone is employing them, but you don't seem to know who is employing them.

3) There’s no evidence they’re working at all. Volunteering is not working.

If they were getting bed and board or another benefit in kind for the volunteerism, it could be classed as work I believe.

I think you are correct, if they enter on a holiday visa, they are limited to "holidaying", for any other reason, including "journalism", they need an appropriate visa.
