TALK IS CHEAP. NOW IS THE TIME FOR ACTION.
NOW IS THE TIME FOR ALL MINNESOTANS TO MAKE A STAND!
WOULD YOU HELP A City Councilman WHO IS FIGHTING TO PROTECT YOUR City and community from economic disaster ?
At tonight’s (November 6th) city council meeting at 6pm Jeff Johnson will introduce his moratorium (based on Federal Law – 8 USC 1522) on refugee resettlement. ( A copy of the proposed resolution appears near the end of this article) I previously wrote about his issue here “Another Chapter in the StCloud MN Refugee Invasion-8 USC 1522”
>Two simple things each of us can do to help his and our cause. Number one- be present at the council meeting to applaud and cheer for Jeff Johnson. Please come and invite your friends and neighbors also. The address to the City Hall is 400 2nd Street South, St. Cloud, Mn. 56301.
> Number two- a simple powerful idea everyone on this list can do in under 10 minutes. The entire three county area is affected by refugee arrivals; select 5 people at random anywhere in the phone book. Ask them one question: “Do you think the St. Cloud City-council should add 225 more primary refugees into our town? ( there are already 20,000 here …ST. cloud number two in the US per capita in refugee numbers)
If they say yes, thank them and hang up. When they say no, invite them to the council
meeting tomorrow to support Jeff Johnson who is fighting for them. Also ask if they could call five more friends or neighbors who would offer support. If each of us managed to get a few people to do one of the above, it would help Jeff, our cause,
and give each of us a sense of civic pride knowing we did our best.
Thanking each one of you in advance for your consideration and efforts.

Be polite but firm in your support for
NO TAXATION WITHOUT REPRESENTATION!!
PEOPLE’S RIGHT TO KNOW
VOLAG (Volunteer Agency) engaged in overseas relief in the State of Minnesota; and
agency activities should be conducted in close cooperation and advance consultation with State and local governments (emphasis added); and
develop and implement, in consultation with representatives of voluntary agencies and State and local governments, policies and strategies for the placement and resettlement of refugees within the United States” (emphasis added); and
moratorium on the placement of additional refugees through primary resettlement until
Lutheran Social Services, the VOLAG, demonstrates the following: (1) they are in full
compliance with the aforementioned federal statutes; (2) an objective independent economic impact study detailing all costs to taxpayers for refugees has been completed and reviewed by the City Council; and (3) the City of St. Cloud is informed how the annual capacity number of 225 primary resettlement refugees was determined and what matrix is being used to determine future annual resettlement allocations.
