Ciaran Staunton, vice chairman of the Irish Lobby for Immigration Reform, met with members of the Dail (Irish Parliament) in Dublin last week amid more bleak job news in Ireland. The rising number of layoffs in Ireland is driving hundreds of Irish jobseekers to the U.S., thereby adding to the numbers of undocumented Irish in the U.S. Staunton called for a new bliateral visa along the lines of an agreement which the Australian government has in place with the U.S. administration.
