Fast track housing for Asylum Seekers to become "standard feature of Irish towns"

Fast track housing for Asylum Seekers to become "standard feature of Irish towns"
A new fast track system of Housing for Asylum Seekers arriving in Ireland will see applicants housed within four months and will become a "standard feature of Irish cities and towns" .

Details of the new system are contained in a Governmental report entitled : "a white paper to end direct provision and establish a new International Protection support service"  

Under the new system Asylum Seekers arriving in Ireland will initially be housed in one of six state owned Reception and Integration Centres with own-door or own-room accommodation where they will receive free healthcare , childcare , educational and financial supports . Applicants will be eligible for a Driving Licence and Bank account .

After 4 months , applicants will be given a House or Apartment and receive an income support payment from the Department of Children & Equality at a rate similar to the Supplementary Welfare Allowance . Non Governmental Organisations will be funded by the Department of Children to provide support services during this period and applicants will be entitled to access employment if they do not receive a decision on their application within six months . 

According to the report ..."Accommodation will be located in all Counties" and "Private tenancies will be used to source accommodation for families and Rent a room schemes for single people" 

The location and number of applicants to be accommodated in each county will be determined by the County and City Management Association in cooperation with the Department of Children & Equality

Writing in the report Minister for Children Roderic O'Gorman said .. "Each county will be asked to accommodate applicants for International Protection so that the International Protection accommodation process becomes a standard feature of Irish cities and towns".   
 
Figures published in the report show 8,812 asylum applications were being processed at the end July 2020 . The top 5 countries of origin for asylum applicants were Pakistan , Nigeria , Zimbabwe , Georgia and Albania . 5,613 were men and 3,198 women .
  
The new system will be phased in between February 2021 and December 2024 and will be overseen by a Programme Board chaired by the Department of Children and include representatives from NGOs, Human rights organisations and former asylum seekers .  

A government report published in December 2019 put the number of people waiting on social housing in Ireland at 68,693 with more than a quarter of these waiting longer than Seven Years . Last summer , a freedom of information request to Dublin City Council put the waiting time for a house in that district at 12 years with one person waiting more than 20 years .

Equality ?? - asylum seekers will get housed in 4 months but everyone else 12 years .

Mr Roderic O Gorman, explain how this is "EQUALITY" . how is this treating everyone equal ????

^
very unfair to irish citizens who are waiting years for a house . stats show most asylum seekers arrive from safe countries . for example , last year , people from Nigeria made up the largest nationality claiming asylum here . In fact Over the history of the asylum system Nigerian nationals made up the largest nationality group .

Nigeria is listed as a 'safe country of origin by the UK government. Its a country with SIX MILLION Tourists every year , so it cant be that bad . Its own president even said they should stay at home and help the country.

also , On a Journey from Nigeria to Ireland , how many SAFE countries must you pass to get here . why not claim asylum in any of those .

They see Ireland as a soft touch ripe in social benefits and free stuff run by NGOS who are making a fortune out of the whole thing

transgender therapy is much more damaging than conversion therapy . with trans therapy you have bodily mutilation , irreversible medication to stop the natural development of the body and serious side effects from drugs such as puberty blockers . why dont they ban transgender therapy .

so it will be legal for children to have double mastectomy to change gender but illegal for therapy to discourage this . transgender therapy is barbaric and yet this is perfectly ok by our government and anyone offering therapy to help children keep their existing gender is to be outlawed What has happened to ireland .
