#NoShamrocks: Petition to Irish Taoiseach Enda Kenny and Irish American Members of Congress 

Irishmen, Irishwomen, and Fellow Americans: The enduring symbol of the United States of America is not the barbed wire fence, it is the Statue of Liberty. So please, "in the name of God and of the dead generations from which Ireland receives her old tradition of nationhood," boycott Trump's St. Patrick's Day gathering at the White House on Thursday, March 16. The #NoShamrocks petition will be delivered to all Irish American Members of Congress and the Irish Embassy in Washington. No shamrocks please for the immigrant-hating Mr. Trump. No tri-color flag pins for White supremacists with Irish surnames such as Stephen Bannon. Let's show Trump how many Irish Americans and fellow Americans oppose his policies. Make your Irish ancestors smile. We are not a deportation nation that breaks up immigrant families and separates parents from their children. As John F. Kennedy said, "We are a nation of immigrants." Our diversity is our greatest strength. Share this #NoShamrocks petition with your friends, family, neighbors. Take a stand for the true character of the United States of America -- a free and generous country, a Republic with liberty and justice for all. Petition closes at noon EST on Wednesday, March 15.
