Anti-gay preacher is first-ever banned from Ireland under exclusion powers
An American preacher with extreme anti-gay and anti-Semitic views has become the first person ever banned from Ireland by exclusion powers dating from 1999.
Minister for Justice Charlie Flanagan signed the exclusion on Sunday in respect of Pastor Steven L Anderson with immediate effect under the Immigration Act 1999.

Section 4 of the Act allows the Minister to sign an exclusion order if he "considers it necessary in the interest of national security or public policy".

"I have signed the exclusion order under my executive powers in the interests of public policy," said Mr Flanagan.

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
