McGregor’s commentary occurred in the wake of a vicious stabbing incident against three children in Dublin, reportedly committed by an immigrant – an attack that sent shockwaves through Ireland.

McGregor argued that mass migration is exacerbating an already severe housing crisis in Ireland and that this made “basic living unaffordable for many citizens.”

McGregor criticized the local police chief for his lackluster response to the violent protest that broke out after the horrifying incident in Dublin.
