    Should Immigration be limited?



    Things are a bit quiet here in the last few weeks, nathing like this sort of question to get tempers boilin'.


    With the opening of yet new borders in the EU (Bulgaria, Romania), and the growing number of other non nationals in the State, should immigration to Ireland be halted or limited? If so, why? If no, why not?

    As far as I'm aware for the new states joining now there is no free pass into Ireland.

      Correct - the new ascension states don't have the rights of the previous ones (Poland et al). However, I believe the exclusion applies only for a few years, and (in the meantime) if a business can prove they can't get the employees then they are allowed a work visa.

          Yes, there are far too many Tipp people in Cork. (Mind you Cork would be a lovely spot if you cleared all the natives out.)

            My poll seems not to have a "yes". Can one of the mods edit or can I do it myself - it was there when I originally posted.

                    Notionally, yes. There is a theoretical point at which a country has reached the maximum population that it can sustain. Of course, by the same logic, there would have to be quotas on the number of chilfren people can have.


                    In reality, I don't think we're realistically going to reach that point.


                    And given the rate at which the Irish have formed immigrant populations in other countries, I'd say you;d want to haveright f**king cheek to be pulling up the ladder at this point.

                      Its a ludicrous idea to have unlimited immigration.

                        Bring in a skills based immigration system- if there no one capable or willing to do the job in Ireland let people who are qualified or willing to do it. I am seriously looking at moving to Canada in the next few years. And in order to be able to obtain a visa I have to score a certain score in their immigration tests.

                        Howver many of the things that Irish people enjoy in their everyday lives are provided by immigrants. And I think the vast majority of those who have moved to Ireland have made fantastic contributions to Irish society.

                          I think we should go one step further and close our borders entirely. If you're not in now then tough titty and that goes for all people, whether or not you've an Irish passport.
