RTÉ aired The Undocumented last night, a documentary that showed what life is like for undocumented Irish in Donald Trump's America.
The documentary followed six Irish people who are undocumented and living in the US.
It looked at the struggles people have in finding work despite having lived in the US for many years with some there for over a decade or more.
Some of the interviewees said they lived in fear, and always felt uncomfortable to a certain degree at being caught.
RTE's #undocumented shining a light on reality for illegal Irish in America. V moving stories. Love the Priest & the carpenter from Tralee.— Abby Green (@abbygreen3) May 8, 2017
"I'm just like one of those people who are trying to get over that wall." Refreshing, much-needed bit of self-awareness there #undocumented— Jennifer O'Connell (@jenoconnell) May 8, 2017
Good for that undocumented from Tralee making the point that there's nothing different between him and Hispanic illegals #Undocumented— Gary Murphy (@GaryMurphyDCU) May 8, 2017
Shocked at the lack of sympathy on hashtag #undocumented Perhaps they don't know the personal stories of some, anyone from Pomeroy would.— Sharon Martin (@L4GAN) May 8, 2017
But some people were not so impressed.
The sense entitlement on this show is disgusting. Your visa is finished? Leave. Simple as. #undocumented— Peej (@puhjayjayjay) May 8, 2017
The documentary is still available on the RTÉ Player.
