Last Day before the Dublin meeting for family and friends of the Irish undocumented in America

Today, all across Ireland Friends and Families of the Irish Lobby for Imigration Reform prepared to attend tomorrow's Dublin meeting for Family and Friends of the Irish undocumented in America at the Jury's Hotel, Ballsbridge.

Meanwhile in New York, Irish Lobby for Immigration Reform supporters made a shorter trip to City Hall to speak for the 50,000 undocumented Irish in America at the City Council's Immigration Committee's oversight hearing on New York's interest in Federal Comprehensive Immigration Reform.

Many thanks to Councilman Kendall Stewart, Chairman of the Immigration Committee for providing this local forum to discuss New York's strong interest in comprehensive immigration reform legislation. The concern demonstrated by other committee members who attended the hearing, including Council Members Melissa Mark Viverito, Annabel Palma, Darlene Mealy, and Michael Nelson, is greatly appreciated.
