Department of Justice and Equality
Deportation Orders Re-examination
199. To ask the Minister for Justice and Equality the current or expected residency status in the case of a person (details supplied) in Dublin 2; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [25205/14]
I refer the Deputy to the Reply given to his recent Parliamentary Question No. 188 of Thursday, 23 January 2014. The Status of the person concerned is as set out in that reply.
I am informed by the Irish Naturalisation and Immigration Service (INIS) of my Department that the person referred to is the subject of a Deportation Order and therefore has no entitlement to residency in the State.
Representations were received from the person's legal representative asking that his Deportation Order be revoked, in accordance with the provisions of Section 3(11) of the Immigration Act, 1999 (as amended). This application is under consideration at present. When a decision has been made on that application the outcome of that decision will be conveyed in writing to the person concerned.
Queries in relation to the status of individual immigration cases may be made directly to the INIS by Email 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.
