916. Ireland is Not Full; It’s Failing Us

This week we read, with some dismay, a factually inaccurate and legally dubious article about the plight of refugees in Ireland and the State’s response. One of the people who called it out was Irish Immigration and Human Rights lawyer, Wendy Lyon, and she kindly joined us to talk all about it.
We discussed Ireland’s obligations under international and EU law, the “war-torn countries” red herring and the insanity of charging rent to people living in our inhumane Direct Provision system.
