One comment on the petition by a Noirin L reads, "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.' "
