Minister to meet immigrants in New York today

Minister for Foreign Affairs Charlie Flanagan will be in New York today where he'll meet with groups who help Irish immigrants.

Minister Flanagan is due to visit the Emerald Isle Immigration Centre in the Bronx, as well as the Aisling Community Centre in nearby Yonkers.

Today's meetings pave the way for Minister Flanagan to sit down with Obama?s Immigration Advisor on Tuesday when he'll discuss the plight of the undocumented Irish in the United States.

Many US cities are reported to be considering immigration reform which would give legal status to almost 12 million undocumented residents.

Efforts have recently stalled amid political wrangling in Congress.
