As I informed the Deputy in response to question number 113, which I answered on 19 September, the persons concerned are the subject of a Deportation Order signed on 27 June 2019. This Order requires the persons concerned to remove themselves from the State and remain outside the State. The enforcement of Deportation Orders are a matter for the Garda National Immigration Bureau.

It is open to the persons concerned to submit representations requesting that the Deportation Orders be revoked, pursuant to Section 3(11) of the Immigration Act 1999 (as amended).  However, such applications would require substantial grounds to be successful.

Requests for the revocation of a Deportation Order are non-suspensive. If the persons concerned submit such a request, they are still required to present to the Garda National Immigration Bureau in the interim.

Queries in relation to the status of individual immigration cases may be made directly to the Immigration Service of my Department by e-mail 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 Immigration Service is, in the Deputy’s view, inadequate or too long awaited.
