The Independent TD Mick Wallace has broken down in tears in the Dáil during statements on the migrant and refugee crisis.

The Wexford TD, who has just returned from Calais, has pleaded with the government to become a 'champion of minors' by taking in younger refugees.

He says they would be no burden to the State as plenty of Irish families would take them in, adding he would take one himself.
