Kelly Speaks Out on Undocumented
Kelly feels a sit down between the Irish government and the new White House administration in the New Year is paramount in order to set out some kind of plan for alleviating the "human issue" that is affecting so many of his fellow Irish natives.
"I do believe there is good will within the U.S. for a solution to a degree. It just needs to find the right formula in order to achieve that," he said.
Kelly said the Labor Party spokesperson on foreign affairs, Michael D. Higgins, and party leader Eamonn Gilmore have broached the subject of the Irish undocumented many times before and will continue to do so in the coming years and moths. "The issue touches everyone, and now time is of the essence to try and find a solution," he said.
Kelly, who worked with Board Failte for nine years prior to starting his political career, said ILIR would be very welcome at the Oireachtas to educate the government on the issue of the Irish undocumented.
"The Seanad's primary objection is not legislative; we're more lobby orientated so it's even more reason for ILIR to come so we can get more involved," said Kelly.
