Shamrock for Trump: Not in my name

Shamrock for Trump: Not in my name

I want Enda Kenny to be aware that if he does decide to travel to meet President Donald Trump on St. Patrick's Day, that he is not travelling in my name.
In addition, I want Cllr Des Cahill, Lord Mayor of Cork, to be aware that I do not support him visiting President Trump.

Why is this important?

Because sometimes taking a stand is more important than gaining a short-term benefit.

How it will be delivered

Irish-American politician, Martin O'Malley will deliver the petition in person.

Ireland

Reasons for signing

  • I wasn't going to sign cause I could see how pragmatic politics needs to protect jobs etc. But seeing people with green cards turned away today?- sure there's no appeasing him, he could turn on Ireland for no reason. So there's no reason to collude with the madness. 'stand for something or you'll fall for anything ireland'
  • People with green cards visiting family, or abroad for work, prevented from returning to their homes in the States? Really?! (Yes, really!) On Holocaust Memorial Day he announces no Syrian refugees will be admitted to the US! Enda Kenny needs to know that if he is going to the States to meet Trump on Paddy's Day (to no doubt plead that "Irish 'undocumented' aren't the same as Mexican 'illegal immigrants'"!) - he's not doing it in our name.
  • Because it betrays the women, the disabled, the people of colour and the refugees in, and of, Ireland.
