TALK IS CHEAP. NOW IS THE TIME FOR ACTION.HenryDavidThoreau_HackingAttheBranchesofEvil

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 StCloudMNCityHallTemp11062017meeting 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

15 Years of US Refugee Resettlement Areas (2017

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.
