Children in Ireland’s migration system are falling through the cracks. A new report by the Immigrant Council of Ireland says the lack of clear guidelines regarding immigration status means children are not getting the opportunites they deserve.
It’s recommeding that legislation be put in place and that parents, social workers and teachers be made aware that teenagers have to register with the GNIB when they turn 16. This package hears from Chino and Retundo who both came to Ireland as children and experienced difficulties as well as the CEO of the Immigrant Council of Ireland, Brian Killoran.
