Now is your chance to fight back for Arizona!
Under the pressure of pro-amnesty groups more and more cities are coming out against AZ's new Immigration -- we need to help them fight back against these full-frontal assaults on their rights as a sovereign state of this great nation.
With the City of Cleveland being just one of the area cities jumping on the band wagon against AZ, you can be sure with a new County Council being seated in Cuyahoga County, this will soon follow at a county level. We cannot allow that to happen and must be proactive in stopping it.
Below you will find a template for a Resolution supporting the AZ Immigration Bill. We are encouraging everyone to copy & paste it for presentation to your City Council's for passage.
On May 17, 2010 Cleveland City Council passed Resolution 675, which opposes Arizona's Senate Bill 1070 and supports Comprehensive Immigration Reform. It has been said that Columbus, Cincinnati, Dayton, Lorain and Toledo will be asked to pass similar resolutions.
The Grassroots Rally Team of Ohio has a Resolution which supports Arizona. The resolution was drafted with the help of Immigration Reform Law Institute (IRLI). We will be taking this resolution to our townships, villages and cities asking they pass this resolution to support Arizona.
This is a grassroots effort to combat the anti-Arizona resolutions that are being passed in cities. We're asking you to stand with us in supporting Arizona, by asking your community to pass this resolution.
Whereas, the City of (INSERT YOUR CITY), Ohio believes strongly in the integrity of the borders of the United States and that the federal government has a duty to protect these borders, including regulating the numbers and the qualifications for entrance into the country;

Whereas, the Arizona law requires its law enforcement officers to verify a person’s immigration status with the federal government, if the officer has a reasonable suspicion to believe that the person is unlawfully in the United States;
Whereas the Arizona law expressly prohibits the use of racial profiling and is designed to help enforce the nation’s immigration laws in a way that does not violate anyone’s civil rights;
Whereas the Arizona law requires aliens to register for and carry documents with them that the federal already requires such aliens to possess and does not require United States citizens to carry any documents;
Be it Resolved, that the citizens and [Your City Council] of (Your City), Ohio hereby affirm their support for the people of Arizona who must endure the direct consequences of our federal government’s failure in protecting our borders.
