1.3 Billion spent on Direct Provision Centers over the past 20 years.

WTF?

And on top of this, we have the foreign aid budget of close to another 1 Billion


All of this whilst Irish people live on the streets and yet they are bringing fake refugees more into Ireland!

In almost 20 years, the State has spent more than €1.3 billion on accommodation of asylum seekers, the vast majority going to private providers.
This year, officials estimate the bill could exceed €120 million – which would be the first time annual expenditure breaches the €100 million mark. Emergency accommodation, only ever meant as a stop-gap measure, is now costing €500,000 a week.

It’s not like the Government couldn’t see this coming. Over the past two decades, ideas have come and gone from floating hotels and canvas tents to the construction of purpose-built facilities on State-owned land. But now there are aggravating factors. A broader housing crisis means even as applicants succeed in securing refugee status, they are stuck in centres, while more people arrive to take their place.

Irish Times asks is there a better way?
yes stop letting illegal foreigners into our country and Deport the bogus asylum seekers.
why are the young adults not going ballistic at this? Are they brain dead? They can’t even leave their parents home due to crazy rents caused by no investment in public housing and mass immigration. What type of life is that for young adults and their parents! .

I think you are not asking the right question.
The question is more like this: Where did those 1.3 billion Euro go to. Did they leave the country- or was the money spent locally?
If it was spent in the State, it is a very good thing. It keeps the local economy going.

You cannot tie any "suffering" to immigration.
Huge amounts of money are being spread all around the country and help the development of the local economy. This in retrun helps people staying at home.
If you would not have all that money around, rural Ireland would bleed to death.
How about all that suffering when people are forced to emigrate?

Odd that you choose the phrase “forced to emigrate”

Of course you can, you don't want to but you can't ignore the facts. Every euro taken by the DP/Asylum scam is a euro that is not there to provide Irish people with the resources they are entitled. The Irish establishment is no longer doing it's duty and that will have consequences down the road.

Every euro not spent on DP/asylumn seekers is not going into the local economy.
It won't go anywhere else either.
Simple as- the money won't be raised.
