"I have... because the situation in Afghanistan is very bad, so I went to my solicitors to find out if there's any news from the international protection office. And they said they have been informed by the international protection office that they will be (expediting) all the Afghan asylum seekers' outstanding cases. So that's the good news for us."

6. SOUNDBITE (English) Waheed Talwar, Afghan asylum seeker in Ireland:
"It's a good step in the right direction. But hopefully, everybody takes responsibility and helps as much as they can. But people are very happy with the Irish contribution to the 200 families that they're bringing in. A lot of people that I know were looking forward to their families joining them."

8. SOUNDBITE (English) Waheed Talwar, Afghan asylum seeker in Ireland:
"This is confusing because they're in a shock. And we're very worried about them. So it's very confusing at the moment, you don't know what to do, there's not much you can do. It is basically a helpless situation because I haven't had my interview. So I can't do anything about it because I can't apply for family reunification or I can't apply for a visa for them because I haven't had my own interview. I don't have documents myself so there is not much I can do about it."

"I have been welcomed by the (inaudible) community, I have been helped. I've received a lot of support. Once I got my work permit, this shop was up for rent. So I contacted the agency, the letting agency, and the lady was very helpful and supportive. So she put me in contact with the landlord. And the landlord is a very good man as well. He's very supportive. And he made it very easy for me to start working. I didn't have much money to start as well but the landlord said don't worry. Once I get going, then I can pay him slowly. So he has been very helpful. There's a lot of support from neighbours. So I've been welcomed very fondly here."
