Undocumented Migrants on ‘Journey for Justice’ Welcomed to Galway, Clare

Date Released: 19 June 2013

On Saturday 22nd June, undocumented migrants living in Ireland will undertake a ‘Journey for Justice’ bus tour across Ireland, starting in Dublin and stopping in Galway City and the Cliffs of Moher. Undocumented migrants, including families and children, are bravely stepping out of the shadows to publicly urge the Government to give them the chance to fully integrate with and contribute to their communities.

The tour is organised by the Justice for the Undocumented campaign and supporters who are calling for a pathway to citizenship for undocumented migrants in Ireland, similar to that currently proposed in the USA. Justice for the Undocumented is an initiative of the Migrant Rights Centre Ireland (MRCI).
