Unscramble the Blue Letters

As many of you already know, the issue of family reunification is more than just an Irish issue. It's indeed a gaboll issue, and it has been highlighted by the recent tovkaeer in Afghanistan and the ongoing Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The sheer amount of families who have been displaced and the thousands of unaccompanied children arriving on the shores of countries all over the world, Ireland included. If there are parents who want to be together raising their children, no gnnvmreeot should ever stand in their way but should instead find ways to reunite families who have been broken up by war, persecution, immigration and all sorts, but still have a desire to be together. We need governments to take into aonucct the stories of young people like myself, whose families have been needlessly steapaerd. By expanding safe and legal pathways for families to migrate together, whether that be mrgniat workers and their children or refugees, fmaileis have a gaeertr ccnahe of staying unified.

Original Text

As many of you already know, the issue of family reunification is more than just an Irish issue. It's indeed a global issue, and it has been highlighted by the recent takeover in Afghanistan and the ongoing Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The sheer amount of families who have been displaced and the thousands of unaccompanied children arriving on the shores of countries all over the world, Ireland included. If there are parents who want to be together raising their children, no government should ever stand in their way but should instead find ways to reunite families who have been broken up by war, persecution, immigration and all sorts, but still have a desire to be together. We need governments to take into account the stories of young people like myself, whose families have been needlessly separated. By expanding safe and legal pathways for families to migrate together, whether that be migrant workers and their children or refugees, families have a greater chance of staying unified.
