from Martin O'Malley:

'That the Irish -- of all people -- would shower this immigrant-bashing President with shamrocks is appalling. That the Irish would pin tri-colors to the lapels of his white supremacist cronies, shocks the conscience.

A few months ago, Enda Kenny said Donald J. Trump was "racist and dangerous." Now, the great immigrant round-up has begun and he wants to have a beer with him. This is an appalling abdication of conscience and unbecoming of the more noble traditions of the Irish people.

This isn't about the St. Patrick's party, it's about the people -- immigrant and refugee people everywhere. And it's about the true character of the United States -- a country that received millions of Irish immigrants to our shores.

America never turned its back on Ireland. America stepped up big time for the Irish Peace Process. And as Ireland was once "supported by her exiled children in America," we need Ireland now to stand with us. Stand with us against the violence of moms and dads being ripped away from their children by immigrant round-up squads. Stand with us against immigrant internment camps, against religious identification cards, against travel bans on our Muslim neighbors. #NoShamrocks'
