Read the thread.??? What does any of this mean?
The issue is, unless im way off track, the inefficient postal checks for child benefit that see genuine recipients cut off because they didn't respond within 21 days because they were out of the country, or forgot, or the response got lost in the post, and how such a system is old hat.
What you are proposing is racial profiling which would render the DEASP to accusations of discrimination.
On the otherhand, if they issued 300 letters, with 270 going to Irish claimants, 20 to Polish, 10 to Nigerian etc, then that could be defended as proportionate profiling based on nationality and population, and not discriminatory.
I am fairly sure this happens already. We get the compliance letter 3 or 4 times a year. We don't know of any other family where this happens. We have always thought it is because my wife is not Irish.What you are proposing is racial profiling which would render the DEASP to accusations of discrimination.
I beg your pardon, I hadn't read that post.Read the thread.
A previous poster implied that he/she was being repeatedly targeted due to perception.
Profiling based on risk makes sense.
You are correct.It's nationality-based profiling, based on risk factors.
DEASP has no idea what race you are.
And once a foreign person has been targeted in the first instance, and subsequently proves that they are still residing in this country, what then?It makes perfect sense to target foreign people in the first instance.
Specifically to the posts made in this thread, I have formed an opinion that suggests a process of discriminatory profiling based on nationality may be occurring.So you're basing your opinions solely in what's posted to this thread?
Talk about a waste of resources...
Sorry, you're far too modest. It's your brilliant mind I'm talking about being wasted.What, or whose resources are being wasted here?
