Limerick Mayor calls for deportations of unemployed immigrants

The Mayor of Limerick has provoked outrage by calling for unemployed EU nationals to be deported.

Councillor Kevin Kiely says anyone living here who "can't afford to pay for themselves" should be sent home after three months.

Mayor Kiely is denying accusations that his comments amount to racism, but they have sparked calls for his resignation with local Labour MEP Alan Kelly slamming them as "outrageous".
