108. Deputy Bernard J. Durkan asked the Minister for Justice and Equality if the position of persons (details supplied) will be reviewed; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [47492/17]
Minister for Justice and Equality (Deputy Charles Flanagan): I am advised by the Irish Naturalisation and Immigration Service (INIS) of my Department that the persons concerned are the subject of Deportation Orders made on 15 September 2017.
These orders require the persons concerned to remove themselves from the State and to remain out of the State. The enforcement of the deportation order is a matter for the Garda National Immigration Bureau.
I am satisfied that the decisions made in these cases were made after a detailed examination of all relevant factors and under all applicable legislation. This being the case, I see no basis for having these cases further reviewed.
Queries in relation to the status of individual immigration cases may be made directly to the INIS of my Department by e-mail 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.
