A SHOCKING new survey on Irish citizens living abroad has found that a staggering 5 out of every 5 of them are classed as ‘migrants’, sparking confusion among the anti-migrant community here at home.
Furthermore, the survey also found the overwhelming majority of Irish migrants living abroad were Caucasian, and much like foreign migrants living in Ireland, had similar reasons for moving from their homeland in search of a better future.
“How could Irish abroad be migrants when they’re not even black or brown skinned?” posed flustered anti-migration Facebook page owner Mark O’Riordan. “They’re Irish people with white skin and freckles living in another country, so how in God’s name can they be labelled as migrants?
Referring to the Collins English Dictionary in defence of their findings, the team behind the survey defined being a migrant as ‘a person who moves from one place to another in order to find work or better living conditions’, stating this is the correct term used despite colour or racial prejudice.
“If that’s the case, then the survey is stating that migrants coming over to Ireland are no different from the Irish living abroad, and should be treated and welcomed in the same way,” pointed out O’Riordan on his Facebook page.
“This is obviously a government sponsored conspiracy destined to desensitize Irish citizens into believing that every human being living on the island of Ireland has an equal and inalienable right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, despite their race or religious beliefs – it’s fucking madness and just typical hoodwinking by Fine Gael”.
