The United States is not the only county that protects immigrants over its own citizens.
In recent years, Ireland has faced challenges as the nation’s population of immigrants continues to grow.
The family of a woman who was sexually assaulted in Dungarvan, County Waterford, Ireland, has been told by gardaí (the state police force of the Republic of Ireland) to take down a social media post identifying the perpetrators as foreign men.
As the family matters, the suspects have not been arrested, but they are sharing information to help protect other women in the community. But apparently not as important as protecting the image of immigrants.
The UK has had problems with migrant grooming gangs for years. Activist Tommy Robinson’s documentary, “The Rape of Britain,” exposed those involved with migrant gangs raping young British girls in Telford and other towns.
Speaking to Gript today, a family member said concerns about identifying the attackers as non-Irish seemed more important than making sure other girls and women were at risk.
A woman is momentarily separated from her partner while walking home from a night out and is approached by a man asking for a light. Two men then grabbed her by the arms and dragged her to an alley where another man was waiting.
However, her screams alerted an elderly woman in a nearby house, who came out and interrupted the attack. Four men reportedly hit an elderly woman before running away when gardaí were called.
Family members, who described the attack as a “vicious attack” by a “gang”, said they found the gardaí’s response “very upsetting”.
“We can’t understand it,” he said. “We were asked to remove the social media post identifying the attackers as foreign nationals, as no arrests have been made and women need to know this information.”
“The gardaí asked us why we said we were foreign men and then asked us to take down the post. We were then asked not to talk about what happened to anyone.
“It all seems wrong, who is saved here? [The victim] Unable to sleep or eat, she is in complete shock. Usually anywhere there is a serious crime it is on the radio and explanations are given and witnesses are appealed for. But we are being told not to say anything.
Another family member told Gript: “People need to know that if women don’t know who to look to it will happen to another girl, everyone understands that. That is why explanations are given. “
