Many immigrant taxi drivers suspected of being in sham marriages

It is being reported that as many as one in four immigrant taxi drivers are involved in sham marriages.

A recent report in the Irish Times has highlighted that at recent illegal immigration checkpoints.

The recent operation was put in place to coincide with Ed Sheeran's Dublin concerts in May.

Of the 110 drivers stopped, 26 are believed to have paid to marry a woman from Europe so they could have the right to work in Ireland.
Gardaí have revoked their immigration status, but that's under appeal.
