As it's election time and a lot of so-called supposed pro-workers parties proclaim they are for a better standard of living and for workers rights while inconsistently supporting mass immigration and open borders, it is worth discussing why they would do so, and at the expense of the native workforce they claim to care for.

Why would any political party or supporter claim to be a member of a pro-worker political party or entity, while at the same time support an open borders regime which clearly benefits and enriches the employer and the business community at the expense of the average person simply wishing to put bread on the table?

By the Gulag wall.
The Left are well aware that mass immigration lowers workers wages and increases rents and house prices. It's a bonanza for the Capitalist ruling class. However, these Leftist parties have failed to make any inroad with the Native working class. They believe their only hope is to import a new working class who will vote for them. Of course, this is totally delusional. Most migrants are trying to escape grinding poverty and are totally invested in the Capitalist mentality. Their dream is to get rich exploiting other migrants. Really, Fine Gael is the perfect migrant party.

Capitalism is all about risk taking and exalting risk taking. It does not do good for long term planning of a society, a country or an economy. Mass Immigration is an ultimate kind of risk taking, we do not know who is coming in whether they are war criminals, rapists or carry diseases or how multiculturalism will change society, so we are risk taking.

Years ago..

I read that the US scientists working on the first atomic weapons, briefly, wondered if the effect of setting off a nuclear weapon would be to set the earth's atmosphere on fire and destroy all life... they did not pause for an hour to even discuss it..
properly...

A similar arrogance is at play here..

Open the borders of Ireland.. invite in the entire populations of East Europe and third world without even cursory checks... Change Ireland beyond recognition and do more damage in twenty years to Ireland than the vikings, the Normans and the British combined..

Shur.. Why not. De EU told us..an me penshin apartments are full..
