Richie is joined by Justin Barrett, the leader of Ireland's National Party.
Ireland has seen an increase in tension in recent months over the housing of asylum seekers.
Demonstrations have taken place outside centres housing refugees across the country, with protesters chanting "house the Irish, not the world."
Typically, Ireland's legacy media is downplaying the seriousness of the impact of mass immigration on public services. Worse still, the protesters themselves have been accused of racism and of othering the migrants.
Justin Barrett, the leader of Ireland's National Party, came on to discuss why the protests are taking place, the history of Ireland's housing problems, the weaponization of migration and importantly, where it all might be leading.
