AbstractBarnardos believes that child trafficking is a child protection issue. As such, the principles underpinning the Child
Care Act 1991, and the provisions of that Act are there to guide the response of the State to situations where
there exists a risk that a child may have been trafficked either into or within Ireland. Immigration priorities cannot
be allowed to take precedence over child protection and welfare concerns.
