The reaction of any rational, law-abiding citizen to Justice Minister Frances Fitzgerald's plan to expel suspected Islamic extremists is likely to be that it makes perfect sense, and it was about time.

The Tánaiste was absolutely correct when she said she was making no apologies for booting out suspected jihadists - even if there was insufficient evidence to support a criminal prosecution.

As the Justice Minister, she must exercise the State's primary duty of protecting its citizens from this gangrenous poison.
