DUP invited to speak at Sinn Féin Event

7 June, 2007

Sinn Féin Newry Armagh MLA Cathal Boylan has confirmed that the DUP have been invited to speak at a Sinn Féin event in the Long Gallery today, Thursday 7th May at 2.30pm.

The event has been organised to highlight the issue of the undocumented Irish in the USA.

Speaking ahead of the event Mr Boylan said:

"When the Assembly debated the issue of the undocumented in the USA there was widespread agreement on the need for immigration reform in America. This is an issue that affects all our constiuents.

"This issue is now reaching an important point because the American legislature is debating a compromise way forward.

"There is an important role for politicians on this side of the Atlantic in sending a clear message to politicians now debating this. We need compromise to allow the many many Irish people living and working in America to have their contributions properly recognised and their status formalised." ENDS
