Now a question about asylum seekers.
An asylum seeker is a person who says he or she is a refugee, someone fleeing harm and seeking the refuge and protection of a government but whose formal claim has not yet been considered by the authorities.
Thinking now about people who come to Northern Ireland to get away from persecution in their own country. How much do you agree or disagree that these asylum seekers should be allowed to stay in Northern Ireland?
