New York-based publisher Niall O’Dowd has told TDs and Senators to put pressure on the US Government to improve the situation of Irish illegals.
Mr O’Dowd, speaking from the US, was among a number of immigration reform advocates participating in a video conference for TDs and Senators in Dublin on Wednesday.
Among those in attendance at the video conference in a Dublin city-centre hotel were Independent TD Denis Naughten, Fine Gael’s Bernard Durkan and Fianna Fáil Senator Mark Daly.
Sinn Féin deputies Dessie Ellis, Seán Crowe and Michael Colreavy were also present, along with party Senators Trevor Ó Clochartaigh and David Cullinane. The chairman of the Irish Lobby for Immigration Reform (ILIR) Ciarán Staunton, also speaking from the US, said the Irish Government should make a formal request to the US Government and the new US ambassador to Ireland, Kevin O’Malley.
