    Border Checkpoints: A Solution to Ireland’s Migrant Flow? Episode 227
    Niall Boylan

In this episode, Niall is asking, “Should Ireland Reinstate Border Checks Between The North And South?” Recently, Gardaí sent migrants back to the North on one-way train tickets, prompting a discussion on whether border checkpoints could help control illegal immigration. With an estimated 30,000 migrants expected this year, opinions are divided on the effectiveness and implications of such measures.

Some callers think reinstating border checks is essential to manage illegal immigration and enhance security. They believe it would help control the flow of migrants and prevent the entry of illegal items, ensuring a secure and orderly process for asylum seekers.

Others feel reinstating border checks would be a step backward, undermining progress since the Good Friday Agreement and disrupting daily life for those near the border. They suggest improving immigration processes and cooperation with Northern Ireland and the UK instead.

Niall summarizes the diverse opinions and suggests that while some see border checks as a solution, it’s crucial to consider broader social and political implications. He thanks the callers for their insights and encourages listeners to continue the conversation.
