Asylum seekers in Tralee are concerned with the denial of basic human rights.

category kerry | racism & migration related issues | press release author Friday January 21, 2011 20:33author by Tuli Report this post to the editors

Asylum seekers in Tralee are concerned with the following denials of basic human rights.

Atlas House, Tralee Aylum Seekers Claim Unjust Treatment

Asylum seekers in Atlas House,Tralee are concerned with the following denials of basic human rights.

1. The behaviour of security guards and the abuse of individual privacy, particularly frequent searches of our rooms in our absence.

2. The delay in providing tooth brushes, shampoo, soap, towels bed linnen etc.

3. Transfer of residents with out knowledge of the Department of Justice.

4. Of the allowance of only E196.00 per week, only E19.10 is been paid to the individual asylum seeker. The E19.10 figure has not been increased for almost a decade.

5. No privacy, up to three people, often from different cultures sharing in each bedroom.

It seems that the governments policy is to allow as few asylum seekers as possible to live permanently in Ireland and to make there stay here as uncomfortable as possible in the hope that as many as possible will give up all hope and return to their native countries.

Asylum seekers have fled persecution which itself is traumatic. The treatment they recieve in Ireland adds to this trauma often resulting in the unset of mental health problems.

Joe

According to yourself CARN are seeking certain rights for asylum seekers. I have a few points to make about why it might not be feasible to extend these rights on an automatic basis.

Can I also say that each of these rights while not available to asylum seekers are in fact available to refugees.

The right to work - in the current economic climate there are few jobs available to Irish people, particularly unskilled. Were asylum seekers allowed to work pending the processing of their claims, it is likely that there would be resentment towards them from jobless Irish. Not saying that they shouldn't be allowed to work under any circumstances, just making the point that it could cause problems.

Access to 3rd level education - I think this is fair enough that everyone should have access to this.

Closure of direct provision centres - this is a cost effective solution to a financial burden imposed upon the taxpayer. I don't see a problem with direct provision centres themselves, once they are well run and people's rights and dignities are respected.

An end to deportations - if a person is a failed asylum seeker and has exhausted all legal avenues to stay in Ireland, deportation to their country of origin may be a solution. Deportation is the right of all sovereign nations to exercise in the case of illegal immigrants. You will find that almost every country in the world exercises this right, including some of the biggest asylum producing countries such as Nigeria.

I also have a question - do the people of CARN believe in immigration regulation per se? Or do they believe that the rules pertaining to immigration are faulty.
