When there’s a discussion of undocumented individuals living in this country, the discussion usually revolves around Hispanics.
But hold your shamrocks – believe it or not, there are approximately 50,000 undocumented Irish people in the U.S.
This writer must divulge that he is about 50% Irish, from the maternal side. So my feelings toward the Irish have always been very fond. The fact that we have many Irish here without the proper paperwork is, to me at least, just another reason to repair our broken immigration system.
The Columbia Chronicle has an article about this subject and is worth a look. You can find it here.
