    Hate to play the ethnic card, but....

    Would it be a different headline if she was from Sri Lanka? How about "Nanny held after death of infant"?

    I can't recall with certanity, but I cannot recall seeing a headline on UHub which says "Filipino drug dealer suspected in shooting."

    Not the Irish part per se

    More the foreign part in general. Remember Louise Woodward? So, yeah, if she were from Sri Lanka, I'd mention that.

    is acceptable. My parents were legal immigrants. I have no sympathy for her. She should have been rounded up and deported back home a long time ago. She obviously also is committing fraud in getting jobs. She was in no danger of being persecuted by being deported back to Ireland. In fact, I bet she came to America because she has baggage back home and needed to get out of Dodge.
