The unvetted men trope

A guy left a comment on one of my Facebook posts yesterday about UNVETTED MEN.

In case the notion of “unvetted men” was not enough to strike fear into the mind of the reader he had gone to the trouble of putting UNVETTED MEN in block caps.

Just in case I missed the point.

I told him about the unvetted men who had left Ireland’s shores for over a century to find their livings in places like England, America, Australia, Canada, and elsewhere.

I told him that Joe Biden’s forefathers who left Mayo were UNVETTED MEN.

Coincidentally, there is a useful article in the Irish Times this morning about why unvetted men present for protection under international law. It is worth a read.
