Marching For The Undocumented


Hundreds of undocumented migrants, including Mariaam Bhatti (pic 3) from South Africa and Hilda Ragaspi (bottom pic) from the Phillipines, joined supporters of the Justice for the Undocumented Campaign in a candlelit march from Grafton Street, Dublin to the Dail this afternoon.
Miriaam and Hilda are among an estimated 30,000 undocumented migrants in Ireland who, similar to many Irish in the United States, are living in a limbo and unable to visit their families.
The marchers called on the Government to introduce an Earned Regularisation Scheme which would give the migrants the opportunity to legalise their status in Ireland.
