January 24, 2017: Claremont Contemplates California Liberal Craze, Seeking Sanctuary Status

On January 24, 2017, the Claremont City Council will decide whether or not Claremont will become a SANCTUARY CITY.  Please attend and tell the council not to declare Claremont a sanctuary city and to rescind all illegal sanctuary policies.

How this came about:  in December, 25 people spoke during public comment and urged the Council to declare Claremont a sanctuary city.  Their pleas were about bringing "people out of the shadows" and 'equal treatment for all people", etc.  Their urgency was to have Claremont declared a Sanctuary City as a rebuff against any action President Trump may take to withhold Federal Funding to Sanctuary Cities. 

We are anticipating those in favor of Sanctuary City status will be at the Council meeting in large numbers; college professors, students, liberal residents and people not from Claremont but who are working hard to have as many Sanctuary cities in CA as possible.   They are well organized.

I am asking for your help in countering the onslaught of liberals and illegal alien sympathizers who are trying hard to influence Claremont to make this declaration.

How you can help:

1.  Call Claremont City Council, Mayor and City Manager.  (Councilmembers and Mayor have the same City number, so please call each of them separately, rather than just using one call for all).  The City Manager has a different number.

Mayor Sam Pedroza,  909 399-5444
Councilman Corey Calaycay,  909 399-5444
Councilman Opanyi Nasiali, 909 399-5444
Councilman Joe Lyons, 909 399-5444
Councilman, Larry Schroeder,  909 399-5444

City Manager: Tony Ramos  909 399-5441

2.  Please email each Councilman, and voice your opposition.

3.  Lastly, please, if you can, join us at the meeting on January 24th at:

Claremont City Council
225 West 2nd Street
Claremont, CA 91711

Council Meeting: January 24th, 2017 starts at 6:30p.m.  (Arrive early if you can).

Your presence is important, so please address the Council, let them know of your opposition and why.  If you agree with another speaker, and don't want to say a lot, simply state:  "I just want to say,  I agree with the speakers opposing this Resolultion."  Your voice will then be counted, don't let the Council assume you are supporting the other side.

You don't have to live in Claremont to speak.

Thank you so much, so very much.  Many of us have spoken at neighboring Councils fighting this fight, and we have been successful at times.   There are some Democrats in Claremont who are very much against becoming a Sanctuary City, and I am hoping they will speak up too. 

I am grateful for all your help.  Thank you for anything you can do.

NOTE:  New article and poll shows the majority of Californians oppose sanctuary cities and policies.
