ABOUT US: The Irish Lobby for Immigration Reform (ILIR) is fighting for the voice of the estimated 50,000 undocumented Irish in the immigration debate.

ILIR was set up in December 2005 and since then we have held several immigration rallies throughout the US and have also held two high-profile lobby days in Congress to lobby for our undocumented Irish workers.

Senior politicians such as Senators Charles Schumer (D-NY), John McCain (R-AZ), Edward Kennedy (D-MA), Hillary Clinton (D-NY), Sam Brownback (R-KS) have all attended ILIR rallies along with their colleagues in the House, such as Eliot Engel (D-NY), Anthony Weiner (D-NY), William Delahunt (D-MA), Marty Meehan (D-MA) and many more.

ILIR has become the major voice of Irish America on immigration and has been featured in The New York Times, The Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, CNN, CBS Evening News, NBC News, Fox News, Newsday, The Boston Globe, The Florida Sun Sentinel, San Francisco Chronicle, The New York Sun, and over 100 other media outlets throughout America.

Members of the ILIR include key officers from the Ancient Order of Hibernians, the Gaelic Athletic Association, Irish American Democrats, the Irish American Republicans, the Friends of Ireland, Federation of Irish American Societies, Irish American business owners, immigration centers, community leaders and professionals from across the spectrum of Irish America.

We have major chapters in key political states such as California (San Franciso, 8th District) and are the fastest growing Irish American grass-roots organization in the country.
