All immigrants should be thoroughly vetted and everyone who enters the country without legitimate papers should be instantly sent back to the country they arrived here from.

Yes, only for a very short period of time and encourage them to job seek. If no effort is made towards seeking a job then social welfare should be withdrawn from both foreigners and from irish citizens

 @9NPJXK4answered…2wks2W

Yes, for refugees and asylum seekers and for other foreign nationals who would qualify for welfare under similar circumstances to Irish nationals for short term support

Within reason. I don't see why they should get it straight away. Evidence of trying to get work etc. Proof of what they are doing with the money. If they are sending back home, then no. Are they begging on the streets etc. Need to see evidence of being a good part of society. This isn't just for "foreigners", this should be the same for all people on social welfare.
