An assembly motion calling on MLAs to recognise the positive contributions of migrants in NI is to be debated on Monday.

Alliance's Anna Lo is behind the motion which also urges a review of the Migrant Workers Strategy and the return of the Racial Equality Forum.

Ms Lo said it was important all MLAs united to send out a strong message that Northern Ireland is "anti-racism".

She said it was "simply not enough just to condemn racist attacks".

"This motion will give every MLA the chance to say migrants have a place in the centre of our society," she added.

"I am also calling for the Stormont Executive to review the Migrant Workers Strategy and re-establish the Racial Equality Forum. continues here
