Refugee family reunification putting ‘pressure’ on homeless system
Asylum-seekers losing their accommodation after bringing relatives into Ireland, official says
https://www.irishtimes.com/news/social- ... 3?mode=amp
Quote:
A scheme where refugees can bring relatives to live in Ireland is putting pressure on homeless services, and pushing refugee families into emergency accommodation, the director of the Dublin Region Homeless Executive (DRHE) has said....
...“Our problem is once they’ve got the right to reside, then they are also getting a right to reunify with their families. So what might start off as one or two [people] ends up with much larger families,” Ms Gleeson told The Irish Times.

Families then have difficulty finding larger accommodation, or are evicted by landlords as the property is overcrowded, and end up presenting as homeless, Ms Gleeson said.

The Dublin homeless service had “no issue” with refugees bringing family members to Ireland under the reunification scheme, “but it is putting pressure on homeless services,” Ms Gleeson said.

“In some cases we had reunification where there was one person and it ended up as nine. There was no way that individual was going to be able to stay in his bedsit. Then they present as homeless,” she said. The issue has become more prevalent in the last six months, Ms Gleeson said.

Hard to cope with a housing crisis when literally anyone from the Eu or beyond can rack up and look for a house, very few questions asked

Half of families sleeping in Garda stations are Travellers or Romanian
https://www.irishtimes.com/news/social- ... -1.3594025
Quote:
Homeless charity Focus Ireland told 30 families to present to Garda stations in April as there was no available emergency accommodation beds at night.
Several families were advised to present to Garda stations on more than one night, with the charity referring families on 46 occasions over the month.

Nine of the families advised to sleep in Garda stations were Romanian nationals, eight were from the Travelling community, seven were Irish and three were non-EU citizens.

12 of the 27 nationalities recorded were Romanian or non-EU...44%. How can you plan for that?

Any non-Irish EU citizen that turns up in a Garda station: on a plane back to his/her home country. Well covered by EU legislation.
Any non-EU citizen: pretty much the same, plus complications when it comes to refugee status etc.

Did anyone hear Minister Eoghan Murphy on Miriam earlier?
He was completely out of his depth, wouldn't answer queries and sounded relieved that the basic questioning was over.

Minister Eoghan Murphy was on PatKennyNewstalk for 25 minutes. Waffling as usual.
He stated that "we need to restructure the entire housing system in this country" to prevent the current crisis happening again.
Any idea what that means?

Huh..Housing system?!? What's that?

One thing is for sure. Statements like that out such players as non-leader material. So we can be thankful for that heads up.

So... lets see. Leadership. None. Why? No vision. Why? Failure of imagination? Why? Fear? Why? No Leaders. Why? No Ireland. Why? No Leaders.

Why?

It's FG parlance
“There is no system more broken than the system of housing in this country. The system is completely broken and needs to be re-built.” - Richard Bruton, Minister for Education, 09/06/16
"The entire housing system needs to be restructured to stop it from breaking again" - Eoghan Murphy, Minister for Housing, 05/09/18
