Government Statistics show just 8% of Asylum Claims genuine

politics
At the end of 2017 , there were 34 Asylum Centres spread accross 17 counties accommodating 5,473 asylum seekers .  

2017 saw a 30% jump in the number of asylum seekers arriving with 2,926 arrivals compared to 2,244 in 2016 .

The top two Nationalities living in the centres at the end of 2017 were nationals of Pakistan and Nigeria .   
 
At the end of 2017 , the top 3 counties of accomodation were  Dublin,  Cork and Meath and the top 3 locations for people claiming asylum were  Mount street application centre (1978 persons) , Dublin Airport (812 persons)  and Cloverhill Prison (57 persons) .  

The process 

When an asylum seeker arrives in Ireland , they make their application for asylum to the International Protection Office (IPO) in Dublin . 

They are given a Face to Face interview to present their case and make all their arguments to a highly skilled and trained officer within the IPO . 

The IPO officer then examines all the evidence in detail and makes a recommendation to approve or reject the application .

If the officer considers the person is not a Refugee as defined by the Geneva Convention , they will also consider granting subsidiary protection , which is an EU Law that is - "complimentary and addtional to the rights enshrined in the Geneva Convention" . 
 
The process is very thorough and fair . 

This is what makes the following statistic so alarming . 

Statistics published by the IPO (formerly known as ORAC) show that every year since the asylum system was introduced back in 2000 , on average just 8% of all Asylum applications are considered genuine by IPO officers .    
 

YearApplicationsApproved Percent   
pre 2003 11,5988948%
20037,4833455%
20044,26543010%
20054,30445511%
20064,2413979%
20073,93337610%
20083,8072958%
20092,660974%
20101,918241%
20111,282615%
2012940677%
201393812814%
2014 14381329%
201532711525%
20162237444 20%
TOTAL 54,3154,2978%
  
 
Presented with such facts , that just 8% of claims are considered genuine , is it not reasonable to expect that any government under such circumstances would be trying to close down centres rather than opening new centres? 

Yet the opposite holds true , Over the course of 2017 two new centres were opened , Bridgewater house, Carrick-on-Suir, Co. Tipperary in November followed by Linden House, New Road, Killarney in December .

In the coming Months another two new centres are expected to open , King Thomond Hotel in Lisdoonvarna in County Clare and the Shannon Key West Hotel in Rooskey , County Leitrim .

  

On Wednesday Evening , the people of Lisdoonvarna voted against the proposed Asylum Centre by 197 votes to 15 . However , the Department of Justice has indicated it intends to push ahead with the plan regardless .

The Direct Provision system is overcrowded with economic migrants . The government has lost control . Thousands have deportation orders but the state wont act , its paralyzed with fear ,its afraid of migrant NGOs . Now they are opening new hotels and centres to house even more economic migrants . They are making a mess of the whole thing and are abusing the good nature of Irish People
#
Courtdown Hotel is getting asylum seekers . Asylum seekers are being moved from Esplanade Hotel in Bray to Courtown Hotel in Wexford . When is the madness going to end .

#
Now Leitrim too . A direct provision centre has opened in Cuin house, Carrick on Shannon , 30 men between the ages of 25 and 35 were dropped off yesterday afternoon .
#
Somebody needs to inform David Stanton of these facts , although somehow I think he already knows them
#
I think Leo Varadkar should lead by example and open an Asylum Hostel in CastleKnock .
#
hey when are they going to do something for the homeless . its totally unfair
#
I think if people knew these facts they would be more willing to go against the consensus on this issue .

There is no plausible explanation as to why you would continue to spend more money opening hotels for people who statistics show are not genuine and are coming here under false pretences

This money should be spent on the homeless crisis , its way out of hand and getting worse day by day
#
There is no doubt that Ireland is being plantated on a scale never seen before since the British Plantations . its such a pity that our politicians remain silent on the issue because when its gone its gone , there is no going back . we have such a great heritage and culture , we should be protecting it , instead our TDS appear to be ashamed of it . so sad .

Fionnula, it's the Kalergi Plan, to dilute Nation States, & create a Low wage, mixed race Federation, to 'breed out' White 'Christian' Europe. Being done by Stealth, FG/FF are Planting IRL, with 20+ Soros fake NGOs working with them. They want to create a mixed race EU they can dictate to. It's time to remove the Entire group of EU & M15 Pawns in Gov. All Treasonous.

before we joined the EU there was about 50 asylum applications per year , now look at us , thousands and growing , 80% proven not to be genuine , where does this madness all end . the great replacement
#
hi , i agree with you on this . 70 + million a year is spent on direct provision for asylum seekers despite 80% not being genuine .

that money could be redirected into homeless services and better services for those who are genuine .

unfortunately , we live in an age of feelings before facts , political correctness and mass propaganda, people dont question stuff anymore although to some extent this is changing in other countries , ireland will probably be the last to follow . I hope not though.
