In a story published on Sunday, the Irish Times reported on the honeymoon fund of Irish nationals travelling to Texas.
The Irish Times said the group was “honestly enjoying their honeymoon” and said the “honey-moon funds of Irish-Americans” in Texas were “incredibly well managed”.
It added that “the Irish are an open and tolerant people, who do not hide their Irishness and will happily share their hospitality”.
Irish Americans who are planning to visit Texas and other US states are “doing so at their own risk and at their expense, because they may be under pressure from immigration authorities”.
The Irish language newspaper reported that the group had been told that their visas had been revoked after their arrival.
Irish Americans travelling to the US are being advised to avoid Irish-American restaurants and pubs and to avoid local shopping centres, the paper said.
The US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) said in a statement that it was aware of the report and is working with the Irish Embassy in Texas to determine what steps will be taken.
“The Department of State and DHS take seriously the safety and security of all Americans, and are fully committed to protecting our borders,” the statement said.
“We also have strong immigration enforcement actions in place at our borders, including the removal of individuals who are in the country illegally.”
Irish Americans living in the US have been advised to check their passport or visa status before travelling to their destination.
The newspaper also said it was possible that the Irish family had travelled to the state to celebrate a wedding anniversary, which they are not required to do.
A spokesman for the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade said: “We have no record of any Irish people being denied entry to the United States.
We are actively working with Irish authorities to assist them in ensuring the safety of our citizens and we welcome Irish Americans travelling in search of a holiday or holiday family.”
