Sinn Féin meet local Ethnic Minority Support Group

Sinn Féin South Down MLA Sinead Ennis and Crotlieve Cllr Oksana McMahon recently met with Artur Kemiecik from Newry Mourne & Down’s Ethnic Minority Support Group.

The purpose of the meeting was to discuss issues affecting our migrant population and those new nationals who have made Newry & Mourne their home.



Speaking following the meeting Cllr McMahon said, “There is a lot of good work being carried out by Newry Mourne & Down Council and in particular the staff we met in the Ethnic Minority Support office.



“However, we need to ensure that there is adequate funding available in order that vital services such as language courses, legal and welfare advice are available to those who need to avail of them.”

“Brexit will have a huge effect on our argi-food industry and those who employed within it.

She added, “That sector relies heavily on European migrant workers to sustain it and we must ensure adequate protections are put in place.”
