Migrants Centre criticises new Immigration Bill

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.
