Yes 9.70%
No 90.30%
Don’t Know 0.30%

If Yes Please Explain

  • Crime rates always rise during periods of recession/austerity measures by state,historically.
  • There is not a large migrant community in my direct locality or a high crime rate but I don’t assume that one directly causes the other
  • They are people and are a valuable part of the community.
  • Ethnic grouping
  • Some people don’t like that fact that there are other civilizations coming into the country and can react in crime offensive ways
  • criminals coming over from different countries
  • foreign drug gangs etc
  • I feel some people may be upset if a migrant has taken their jobs and commit a crime they very much regret.
  • no
  • migrants might find it hard to find a job and might turn to crime
  • People and the migrants have agreement issues
  • isolation of the ethnic groups, frustration, language barrier but also the entitlement attitude the people who have heard that “the West” will give you a house, money, food, clothes and all the social benefits.

 

Drug Use is Higher because of Migrant Communities

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Drug Use is Higher because of Migrant Communities

Yes 9.70%
No 90.30%
Don’t Know 0.30%

       If Yes Please explain

  • Because thete not enough jobs
  • Drug use also rises through the introduction of oppressive regimes by state,during austerity/recession.
  • They are people and are a valuable part of the community.
  • They bring in drugs and launder money through barbers
  • unemployment and lack of social inclusion and integration
  • smuggling drugs
  • migrants are bringing drugs to us
  • people smuggling drugs
  • drug gangs
  • no
  • Many migrants come from legal drug using countries, so they sell in other countries
  • they bring it into the country
  • In some countries some drugs are legal or are easily accessible and can be brought in by foreign communities.
  • Other comments
  • Im considered as a migrant so I wouldn’t know if crime rate is higher.
  • Don’t think race is relevant to questions
  • Each community has s degree of lawlessness within it and this is also true of migrant communities
  • Migrants,regardless of background will become involved in criminality,when left with no other option when not supported by state funding/provisions,and being unable to find/obtain employment,and access to education[or being denied the opportunity to work/obtain their own income,and/or access to education]Just as native irish without those opportunities,historically,have become part of the problem,so will the migrants,but no more,or less than the natives in that situation.
  • Crime isn’t to do with been a foreigner. Everything depends on the person themselves and how they are treated in life and brought up. People make mistakes
  • Like everywhere, some are bad, some are good
  • migrants can olny add to our society
  • Migrants actually are associated with a lower crime rate in communities
  • IT could be the case that migrants are working in drug dealing (some examples in north inner city of Dublin) but they are mostly not at the high end of that food chain.
  • I believe direct provision should be abolished. It creates a sigma around refugees and creates a block from integrating.
  • Bad labels stick due to lack of proper information and bad press coverage from biased and unethically news and facts mediums
  • We don’t have many migrants in our community.
  • Everyone is as bad as each other regardless of country of origin in my opinion.
  • Because of lack of knowledge about God
  • just because they are migrants doesnt mean they cause trouble
  • no
  • I am not generalising foreign communities to bring drugs into different countries. I just think that it definitely can and does happen.

ANY Comments

  • Yes. Call me
  • Sport opens doors of friendship, understanding and trust
  • Integration soccer tournaments
  • In my [sporting]times travellers were not allowed participate.However we did play handball with/against them in privately built/owned alleys,in Dublin.The GAA should have been more open to their being allowed into Croke park facility.Maybe then,there might have been more inclusion for the travelling community[and I’m certain they [travellers]would have had great success at the highest level of that sport,and likely within the hurling/football codes,as a result.Doors might have opened,in effect,as well as mind-sets !?
  • No matter what walk of life people are from, sport is for everyone and should be played as a team and enjoyed by all
  • It would be good to
  • sport can break down most barriers
  • In integration language activities.
  • I believe the GAA and soccer in Ireland have programmes for migrant inclusion.
  • I answer no from personal experience. I believe that local sports bodies would support integration but there is no national body advocating/monitoring this and so local sports clubs simply don’t know that there are migrants in their community’s wanting to become involved.
  • Yes and No only responses are not fair for these questions as I actually don’t know if my local sports clubs include migrants and I’m not sure what our national sports bodies do in this space, so there should be a ‘Don’t know’ response as well
  • integration through sport and soccer

Any General Comments

  • don’t know much about the policy of migrants going on the housing list as an irish citizen.
  • If Irish people are entilited to the support so should migrants
  • All people have a right to the dignity of humanity
  • If they intend to live within the country then they should as many opportunities as any other Irish citizen. If we secluded ourselves then there will never be one world but separate countries, separate ethnicities, separate communities etc.
  • All citizens and Migrants should be viewed in the same way when been assets for social housing
  • Migrant has to earn their place in the Irish society therefore it’s a process
  • Migrants should not be treated any differently to native irish.The state needs to raise the bar,not lower it.The EU bears a responsibility for the recent mass migrations across Eurozone,and should pay for some of the necessary funding,in transition.Land should be set aside,for migrants to at least grow their own vegetables,fruit etc.Enough of them end up working for greedy ranch farmers,picking their produce for scab wages,and thereby enriching the already wealthy landed class.Schemes like the original social employment scheme[late 70s] should be reinstigated.This will allow some integration into communities.The jobs scam schemes brought in b FG-Labour are a poor attempt at same.and marginalise those already dumped onto the bailout scrapheap.
  • My comments might seem unfair but it’s to do with the country been in turmoil for there own citizens and I think everyone should work and pay there way as it’s not up to a certain population to fund other people. Only when one is sick or is not fit to work then they should be allowed benefits otherwise all should help. In other country’s me as an Irish citizen would not get the same entitlements in other country’s. All immigrants should have the right to become Irish citizens if they do the things I said earlier as I would like to be intergrated into another country and feel welcomed. World should be united as we are all humans
  • They need to be screened just like everyone else
  • They should definitely be allowed the basics but not before an Irish national
  • If living here a few years then yes for social housing as an Irish citizen
  • if accepted into our country they should be treated with the same options, and respect
  • The fact is they need these things to avoid becoming increasingly marginalised and trapped in a cycle of poverty. Whether it is “fair” or not is irrelevant when thinking in the long term. The same incentives and pathways to work and not become reliant on welfare should be applied to all.
  • Individuals rarely leave their home country because they want to. Nearly all migrants have limited options, mostly due to poverty and language issues.
  • Unless the housing crisis is resolved I don’t think it’s fair to prioritize non-nationals, if there was an abundance of social housing then of course everyone should be entitled. With regards to social welfare, medical cards etc, in the ideal world it would be great to open our doors and say come in and provide all of these things, but it’s not economically viable to do this unless equal investment is being made into making sure that non-nationals have access to adequate education and training in order to ensure they can live and work as contributing members of society in the future and we aren’t just inviting a whole extra population to live off the state when there is already such a massive problem with this in Ireland.
  • They should be treated same as our our citizens – Cead Mile Failte Roith
    I think that provision for them should be made of course, but it could be complicated and very costly to the exchequer to include all migrants in the social protection system.
  • Everyone one should have there basic human rights, no matter where they were born.
  • I do feel they likely should go on the housing list, but again I don’t know the full facts. I don’t understand the question ‘as an Irish Citizen’ as they are not, in the main Irish citizens
  • We must find a happy medium fight domestic homelessness and open our country to those who really need a safe place and a fresh start
  • get on housing list on there own merits nationality should have no baring
  • I believe any migrant should be helped however so should the people that originate from the country as there is a huge housing crisis involving the people in Ireland.
  • If people have been given Refugee Status and Asylum Status – from what I can gather, and know from people who have been through it -that this is a very difficult process and having come through that – which is adjudicated closely by the Immigration Department -they should be entitled to all the help that the State can give them .
  • Hope your conference will highlight the causes of the stigmatisation and suggest solutions to them for proper policy making
  • Personally, I would say the questions were rather leading
  • no
  • just reform the social welfare system because right now it teaches people how to NOT make any effort and people put all their energy to suck off all the money they can from the system insted of focusing on looking after themselves. People learned how to make living out of SW system and they do not work even a day their entire life.
