London’s Times has reported that Irish legislator Maureen O’Sullivan, who is spearheading efforts to review the U.S. immigration status of George Gibney, is about to reach out to counterparts in the American Congress.
Key points of the article:
* “Trump administration’s crackdown on immigration could add to political pressure” to deport Gibney. The current general political climate makes for an “opportune” moment.
* O’Sullivan will write to write to Senator Dianne Feinstein and Congresswoman Jackie Speier “to find out why Mr Gibney was allowed to stay in the US in 2010, despite being denied citizenship and allegedly trying to hide from immigration officials the 27 charges against him in Ireland.” O’Sullivan “there should be huge questions in America” as to why Gibney “was allowed to stay in the country without citizenship.”
* O’Sullivan also will ask police in Ireland and Florida to share information about Gibney’s alleged rape of a 17-year-old swimmer in a Tampa hotel room in 1991.
