Undocumented Irish people in the United States are on high alert as Donald Trump has threatened a crackdown on illegal immigration.

The case of Keith Byrne has come to national attention in recent days.

The Corkman, who has been living in the US for 12 years, was arrested for overstaying his visa requirements and is facing imminent deportation.

He is married to an American citizen, and they have three children.

With tens of thousands fearing the same fate, what happens now?

Independent Senator Billy Lawless, who is based in Chacago, and Louise Corrigan of Louise M Corrigan & Associates, which specialises in US and Irish visa and immigration law, joined us to discuss the situation.
