UK Channel 4 focuses on Irish Immigration.

Ireland's population is booming. This year is expected to see the sharpest rise for a decade.

Around one in six people now living in Ireland wasn't born there, while tens of thousands of Irish citizens left to seek work abroad after the financial crash in 2008.

All this has sparked a fierce debate over immigration, with some groups claiming Ireland's culture is in some way under threat and a handful of online activists apparently influenced by America's alt right. Paraic O’Brien has been to the town of Longford to investigate.
Many are calling this a hatchet job by Channel 4 who are often called leftist biased news channel. It should also be noted that Channel 4 is directly owned by the Vritish Government.

Channel 4 is a British public-service free-to-air television network that began transmission on 2 November 1982. Although largely commercially self-funded, it is ultimately publicly owned; originally a subsidiary of the Independent Broadcasting Authority (IBA),[1] the station is now owned and operated by Channel Four Television Corporation, a public corporation of the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport,[2] which was established in 1990 and came into operation in 1993. With the conversion of the Wenvoe transmitter group in Wales to digital terrestrial broadcasting on 31 March 2010, Channel 4 became a UK-wide TV channel for the first time.

The channel was established to provide a fourth television service to the United Kingdom in addition to the licence-funded BBC One and BBC Two, and the single commercial broadcasting network ITV.
