Pat the Cope plans to raise issue of undocumented Irish in Washington

Donegal MEP, Pat the Cope Gallagher, will make his way to Washington tonight, where he will raise the issue of the "undocumented Irish".

He  says he will speak to as many senators and congress men as possible, urging them to introduce measures to enable an estimated 50,000 undocumented and illegal Irish immigrants to remain in the country legally.
