We need to show more humane approach to asylum seekers 

There was great jubilation recently among the so-called 'undocumented Irish' living and working in the United States, when Barack Obama announced his immigration reform plans. Indeed, the Taoiseach Enda Kenny wrote a letter to President Obama gushingly praising him for his efforts to help those who have been living as 'illegals' in the States for decades. President Obama's immigration reform plans are surely to be welcomed, and certainly a lot of Irish people will benefit greatly from them.
