Written answers (Question to Justice)

I refer the Deputy to my reply given to his Parliamentary Question No. 10153/14 of 27th February 2014. The situation is unchanged since then. The person concerned is the subject of a Deportation Order, following a comprehensive and thorough examination of her asylum claim.

I am informed by the Irish Naturalisation and Immigration Service (INIS) of my Department that the person referred to is the subject of a Deportation Order and therefore has no entitlement to residency in the State.

The effect of the Deportation Order is that the person concerned must leave the State and remain thereafter outside the State.

The enforcement of the Deportation Order remains an operational matter for the Garda National Immigration Bureau.

Queries in relation to the status of individual immigration cases may be made directly to the INIS by Email using the Oireachtas Mail facility which has been specifically established for this purpose. This service enables up-to-date information on such cases to be obtained without the need to seek information by way of the Parliamentary Questions process. The Deputy may consider using the e-mail service except in cases where the response from the INIS is, in the Deputy’s view, inadequate or too long awaited.
