I just I got a call from Enda Kenny, opposition, Fine Gael leader following an email I sent his office in the morning. In my email I asked what was being done to help the plight of the undocumented in the US.
Mr Kenny explained to me that the Irish government has decided to prepare itself for “March when the Taosieach makes a speech in front of the American congress.” He added that he did not agree with this approach.
“By the time we get over there in March we should be in cahoots with the politicians over there,” he said. “There are politicians over in the US such as Schumer and Kennedy who are ready to talk. Mr Ahern and Dermot Ahern need to get into talks in advance.” This is exactly what we need and what we want. Now we just have to make it happen.
Mr. Kenny has assured me that he will let us know how the government is acting on the issue as time goes on. I’d like to thank Mr. Kenny again for keeping us informed.
