The Irish Minister for Foreign Affairs Dermot Ahern seems to not be on the same wavelength as his President. Because although she sees no reason to give special treatment to the undocumented Irish in the US, Ahearn is traveling to the US today as part of final efforts to ensure up to 50,000 undocumented Irish can remain there.
Some say that figure of 50,000 undocumented is really only 25,000, but nobody seems to have the documentation to back up their figures.
The Irish minister is scheduled to meet a whole bunch of American politicans including Senator John McCain, and do you think he’s lobbying on behalf of 12 million latinos?
