Why Can't we do for homeless people what we do for asylum seekers?
Back in the late 90s , There was no such thing as the direct provision system (the system used today to house asylum seekers)

Asylum seekers arriving in Ireland would be on the same terms as other Irish Homeless People .

These terms meant that just like irish people who are homeless today, the local authorities would equally try to provide emergency accomodation to both groups of people .

But that practice of treating everyone equally ended in 1999 .

By 1999 , there was a huge increase in the number asylum seekers coming to Ireland,

The Eastern Health Board became worried that it would not be able to house these asylum seekers and they might become homeless , faced with this prospect of asylum seekers becoming homeless , the government sprang into emergency mode , pulled out all the stops and established a special system of housing for asylum seekers called 'Direct Provision' . 

This system of Direct Provision provides asylum seekers with "full board accommodation free of utility or other cost" which includes 5 meals a day , medical card , clothing , transport , schooling , mobile phone etc , many centres have high speed broadband access , gyms and other hotel like facilities . In addition , each person receives a weekly cash payment of €21.60 which is to be increased to €38.80 next year to buy Confectionery items etc .

LETS TREAT EVERYONE EQUALLY

In the past 16 months 27 homeless people have died on our streets during the same period when our government are opening new accomodation centres for asylum seekers 

This year the Department of Justice added 7 new hotels to its portfolio of accomodation for asylum seekers bringing the total number of hotels / centres for asylum seekers to 40 spread accross 20 Counties ... Among those contracted this year were the King Thomond Hotel in Lisdoonvarna  , Temple Accommodation in Co Westmeath , the Hazel Hotel in Co Kildare , the Altantic Lodge in Kenmare Co Kerry , the Shannon key West Hotel in Leitrim/Roscommon, the Caiseal Mara Hotel on the Inishowen Peninsula in Donegal and the Grand Hotel in Wicklow all opening their Doors as accomodation for asylum seekers . The top Nationalites for residents living in such Centres are Nigeria  , Zimbabwe , Pakistan and Albania . There are No wars in these countries yet we are accomodating their citizens .  From 1999 - 2015 , the government has provided accomodation for 55,780 asylum seekers with an annual bill of € 60,000,000

If our Government can do this for asylum seekers , why not Irish Homeless People too and why didn't they do this back in 1999 , in 1999 , they made the ultimate decision that an asylum seeker has more rights to a home than an Irish Homeless Person .

Its absolutely horrible what the government are doing to their fellow man . Fr McVerry has described it as the worst homeless crisis since the famine .You go into Dublin City Centre , and there are young men sitting all day on the street . Please Think of what that must be like , how boring must it be to have nowhere to go during the day , to just sit in one place for hours on end , how lonely must it be . If only they could claim political asylum . look what my country is doing to me . These People deserve 'equality' , In the same way asylum seekers are housed , they too should be treated equally .   


How many more Homeless People have to die before our government will treat them equally ?.

Please give these people the same rights as asylum seekers . They are Cold , they are hungry , They are lonely , They have nobody on their side . They are the forgotten Irish . People walk by them and dont even realise they are there .

LETS TREAT EVERYONE EQUALLY .
God bless .

this morning a homeless man told me he was "saving for a Tent" . I told him to pitch it beside the local Direct Provision Centre . He thought it was a great idea and is going to do it.
#
how many young people cant afford insurance , tax etc . yet asylum seekers at my local direct provision centre are getting free cars with tax and insurance paid for by our taxes . presumably petrol money also . some have two vehicles . whats going on . a guy told me the other day he was beside an african lady getting on a bus with a huge pram , the pram wouldn't fit on the bus so she tossed it aside and told the driver the social would get her a new pram . crazy goings on in this country right now

Who would you have replace every political party in the country...The clever people like Mick Wallace who bankrupt himself by hanging 40-foot banners from sites he was working on for government... come to the Dail in a vest looking like a silverback gorilla or the people before profit fools who would tax the rich so much they would just go to another EU open a company for 10 Euro and give us NO TAX or would you have them build tens of thousands of houses, drive down the prices, collapse our banks whose assets would then not cover their debts so we would have 100,000 on the street and not in hotel, they would be in tents

Suppoman94

so you think we should continue to allow this cabal of globalists to take turns at running our country into the ground? Einstien once said "the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results" this is what you are proposing because you are afraid to change, and this is exactly what these traitors are counting on to keep them and their successors in power, and make no mistake their children follow them into politics and continue in their parents footsteps towards globalism , let's throw these criminals out in the street, you talk about house values ? how valuable will your house be when muslim extremists are living next door to you ,because they intend flooding Ireland with millions of muslims , how safe will your family be then ? , don't let you apathy blind you, we must change this pattern now before it's too late, the criminals who are the familiar face of fianna fail , fine geal , and all other parties in dail eirean at this time who support the globalist agenda must be kicked out of politics for good , they are traitors, WAKE UP !

Very good article.

if we cannot look to help the most vulnerable or what some view as the least in our society and help them to help themselves become the best they can be and realise their full potential as fellow Irish brothers and sisters then we have no business looking to free our country from globalism or secure it for our people.
#
The problem is that we CAN'T help them UNTIL we free ourselves from globalism, because it';s globalism that put these people on the streets in the first place !

There are thousands of Irish in hotels
#
What's your point? do you have one?

hi suppoman, firstly , why would you want to be spending hundreds of millions and opening new hotels for people who statistics show are for the most part coming to Ireland under false pretences pretending to be refugees . From 2001 to 2016 , out of 54,000 asylum applications only 8% were considered genuine following face to face interviews with the applicants . The top nationalities currently living in Direct Provision are from Pakistan , Nigerian , zimbabwe . in addition asylum seekers from Georgia and Albania are now one of the fastest growing groups . There are NO WARS in any of these countries and on a journey from any of these countries to Ireland you need to pass through at least 10 to 20 safe countries to reach Ireland .

secondly , there are 5,500 asylum seekers currently in hotels and housing around Ireland compared to just 800 irish families who by the way are legal Citizens of this country and are genuinely in need of assistance . They also dont get half the entitlements of asylum seekers . i.e no free cars , tax and insurance and petrol money , no free 5 meals a day or free taxi service , free computer access and clubs , no fast tracking through the housing system . none of the benefits asylum seekers receive.

thirdly , statistics show that the vast majority of asylum seekers are "single" people , if your an irish citizen , single and homeless you will end up sleeping on the streets as hotel accomodation is only for families with young children as it is a courts thing , if the government had their way , they would be on the streets too .

we could , but they wont , the politically correct media would be outraged at the idea of treating irish people equally to everyone else .
#
They should all be deeply ashamed of themselves

brid smith , gino kenny , richard boyd barret are on 87,000 euro a year + expenses , they pretend to represent ordinary people but they dont , they only care about themselves .

the socialist workers party and the socialists are anti irish people , they dont care about irish people who are homeless , I've seen this in my own area , they only care about asylum seekers , thats for sure ,

just a couple of weeks ago they brought asylum seekers into the dail with them to protest against the possibility of them being made homeless , what about Irish people who are homeless ? , do you not care about them , everything you do is obsessed with the welfare of asylum seekers (95% of whom have received letters of deportation from the state) .

Irish People need to wake up and realise that the Anti Austerity alliance dont care about ireland , they want to destroy it

people before profit , the socialist party , the socialist workers party are not your friends

they aint no friends of ireland

The problem margaret is that these politicians are psycopaths, there is no better term for a person who can appear on national telivision , look straight into the camera and lie through their teeth without batting an eye or blushing , so there is no point contacting these liars about homeless people, they are well aware of the situation already , but in their world it's perfectly fine to have irish people sleeping rough , but i will challenge anyone to show me one instance of an african or muslim sleeping rough ! ,these economic migrants criminals and chancers from the third world are all langushing in luxury hotels with their every need cared for ( 5 MEALS A DAY ) and paid for by you and me , so what we need to do is get rid of these traitorous TDs and take our country back , and i am not against immigration at all , but it must be controlled on a case by case basis and it must be done at embassies abroad , apply for a visa , and wait for acceptance or denial, this current system of taking in anything on two legs and putting them up in luxury hotels and then when their application is rejected just turning them loose in the country and giving them a passport is beyond insanity, they have even gone to africa and brought back deportees who were rejected and deported just because a few insane leftists and students cried a few crocodile tears, how much more of this madness must we endure ? meanwhile the enormous national debt which is what pays for all this madness is rising and rising , as if that wasn't bad enough the so called irish government "donates" a billion euros a year to african countries, all of which is borrowed annually from the IMF, Time to put a stop to this ? any sane person would think so!
#
Its so sad .

when you think of all the money gino kenny , paul murphy , Brid Smith are spending on Repeal Clothing , all those repeal jumpers and merchandise , what a waste of money , give to homeless cause instead .

George soros is their new friend , the ordinary irish man is not , they only care about getting houses for Non Irish People , why? who knows , its some weird trotsky religion , some far left manifesto they must conform to , they have brainwashed themselves to turn against Ireland , they are no friends of the Irish people .

I would encourage people in Ballyfermot , Bawnogue , Neilstown etc to abandon these people before profit and sinn fein , they dont care about you , look at all the money they are lining their pockets with , and now look at all the homeless people
#
the international protection act is the law governing asylum in Ireland .

the government were careful to define an asylum seeker as someone with a nationality outside the EU , its a pity , otherwise homeless people could claim asylum and use this system , even while their application is being decided , it would still be a roof over their head and warm meals.

but certainly , I think a similar system must be put in place for homeless people , everyone should be treated equally
#
International law defines it not our government
#
International law has no Jurisdiction in this country, our constitution is what defines our law, most of these internationalist conventions such as the "UN migration pact" and and others were signed without the consent or even knowledge of the irish people so therefore have no legitimacy !
#
many people dont realise this but all EU law supersedes our Constitutional Law . Bunreacht na hEireann , Article 29.6 -

"No provision of this constitution invalidates laws enacted, acts done or measures adopted by the state, before, on or after the entry into force of the treaty of lisbon, that are necessitated by the obligations of membership of the european union referred to in subsection 5° of this section or of the european atomic energy community, or prevents laws enacted, acts done or measures adopted by—

i) the said european union or the european atomic energy community, or institutions thereof,

ii) the european communities or european union existing immediately before the entry into force of the treaty of lisbon, or institutions thereof, or iii bodies competent under the treaties referred to in this section,

from having the force of law in the state.
