The Truth about the Irish Refugee Protection Programme

The Truth about the Irish Refugee Protection Programme

It is frequently reported in the Media that people arriving in Ireland under the Irish Refugee Protection Programme are .. "Refugees" . However , The Department of Justice has confirmed that the IRPP takes two different kinds of migrants into Ireland , Migrants given to them by the UN refugee agency (UNHCR) and Migrants given to them by the EU under the EU's Migrant Relocation Programme .  The department confirmed that the EU migrants are NOT REFUGEES and Do not have any such refugee status when they arrive in Ireland .  

Background to Programme
 
In September 2015 , the EU Commission decided on a Common European Asylum System whereby Migrants arriving in the EU claiming to be refugees would be re-distributed among Member States .

It was agreed at the time that a starting figure of 120,000 Migrants from Italy , Greece and Hungary would be dispersed.
 
On 10 September 2015 , in response to the EU Commission's plan , the Irish Government via Minister for Justice Francis Fitzgerald established the ‘Irish Refugee Protection Programme’ (IRPP) agreeing to take an initial 4,000 migrants over a two year period .

Simon Coveney later boasted the figure would be 12,000 - " by the time they bring their family members to live here  " .

The IRPP takes two kinds of migrants into Ireland , Migrants given to them by the UN refugee agency in D4 (UNHCR) and Migrants given to them by the EU . The UNHCR migrants are declared as refugees 'prior' to landing in Ireland . They come as part of a resettlement programme agreed between the Irish Government and the UN from camps in Lebanon and are classed as programme refugees under Section 59 of the International Protection Act, 2015 . 
 
The EU migrants however are NOT REFUGEES and Do not have refugee status . They are Migrants given to us under the EU's Migrant relocation programme (Council Decisions EU/2015/1523 and EU/2015/1601) . On arriving in Ireland , they apply for asylum (refugee status) like any other asylum seeker . 

Below : December 2016.  Minister Francis Fitzgerald and Minister Katherine Zappone went to Greece and met everyone involved with re-locating migrants to Ireland . They met with Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras, the Minister for Migration, Ioannis Mouzalas, the Minister of Interior, Panos Skourletis , senior Greek officials, UNHCR, UNICEF, the International Organisation for Migration (IOM), the European Asylum Support Office (EASO), MSF, Oxfam and a range of Greek NGO bodies involved in the migration crisis. They also visited two migrant camps in Athens, Eleonas and Skaramangas .

Under the Irish Refugee Protection Programme it was agreed to establish Emergency Reception and Orientation Centres (EROCs) . Tenders were invited from Hotel Owners and Property owners to provide emergency 'full board' treatment for the Migrants

The IRPP is now in the process of establishing Emergency Reception and Orientation Centres (EROCs) and is seeking expressions of interest from persons,companies and organisations interested in makingcommercial offers for accommodation and associated services.

premises should be capable of housing at least 70 persons at a time in single, shared or family type rooms and should include a range of specified facilities. The IRPP is open to offers which provideself-catering and/or full board. Expressions of interest should also include details of associated services such as local or nearby access to shops, schools, hospital and other medical services, sports and recreational facilities.



Hotels that are currently being used for this purpose include the Abbeyfield Four Star Hotel in Roscommon  , the Hazel Hotel in Monasterevin Co. Kildare and Clonea Strand Hotel Dungarvan, Co. Waterford . The Shannon Key West Hotel in Rooskey , is the latest addition to the portfolio .

NOTE : The IRPP is a seperate system to the existing Asylum System whereby asylum seekers make their own way into the Country via people smugglers or by landing directly at our Airports . They are accomodated in Direct Provision Centres of which there are currently 37 Centres spread accross 17 Counties . Direct Provision Centres are managed by the Reception and Integration Agency .

why can't they do this for homeless people ?

Because they're in a hurry to Plant IRL as quick as possible before the Irish People wake up, it's the Kalergi Plan, to breed out White 'Christian' Europe & create a Low wage, mixed race Federation, & ultimately to End Nation States.
No point in you all asking "Why can't they do this for the homeless"? because
FG/FF do NOT work for IRL, they are a Subversive M15 +Soros controlled Pawn Government. https://sovereignwales.com/2016/09/20/the-genocidal-kalergi-plan-to-destroy-the-indigenous-nations-and-peoples-of-europe/ https://redice.tv/news/norway-is-too-white-according-to-the-president-of-the-jewish-community-in-oslo

#
they can open a 4 star hotel for people who its now known are not refugees when they arrive here , but wont do anything for irish homeless people
#
Roscommon needs that hotel .

where are business people going to stay when they come to Roscommon.

you need a hotel to bring business into the area .
#
I think the UNHCR should lead by example and open an Asylum Hostel in Dublin 4

I'm sure the people of D4 won't mind one bit
#
why cant they do this for homeless people ?

the article didn't mention that after six months the migrants are then housed and a new batch of migrants replace them .

and its priority housing , forget about everyone else on the housing list waiting for years .

the whole thing sucks
#
This is probably roscommon's punishment for voting No in the referendum .

by some warped logic , the government is probably trying to get its own back on the people of Roscommon by turning their county into a refugee camp .
#
But isn't it all worthwhile when you see this -
