Council to write to Justice Minister in a bid to halt deportation of Carlow College student

Michael Usiku says he really appreciates all of the support

Carlow county Council’s writing to the Justice Minister to ask for a deportation order against a student at the Carlow College to be reversed.

Michael Usiku was served his deportation order because he wasn’t able to furnish his college registration papers to the Department of Justice on time – because the college hadn’t issued them yet.

Adrienne Wallace proposed a motion which was carried at Monday’s meeting of the local authority calling on Justice Minister Charlie Flanagan to reverse the order now.

Michael himself has told KCLR news this morning that he is so appreciative of the support.
