The government is tightening the laws on immigration and asylum. The proposed immigration bill allows authorities to allow access of foreign nationals and even track their where abouts around Ireland.

From the Indo’s breaking news:

The Migrants Right Centre has criticised the proposed new Immigration Bill published by Justice Minister Brian Lenihan today.

The bill is aimed at tightening Ireland’s immigration laws and making it easier for the authorities to deport illegal immigrants.

Siobhan O’Donoghue, the director of the Migrants Rights Centre, says the proposed legislation is seriously flaws and lacks fairness, transparency and due process.

She says major changes in the bill are needed in order to ensure that immigration reform is done correctly.
