It can be done! A small town in California pushed back on becoming one of Obama’s “Welcoming Cities” and won! No thanks to the “shocked” mayor who is now backpedaling on trying to flood the town with refugees. Bravo to Imperial Beach, CA!
The mayor of Imperial Beach is under attack. A small group of people are accusing him of inviting refugees with an official proclamation.
The mayor himself is a little shocked. He believes it’s a big misunderstanding (LISTEN TO HIM SPEAK IN THE VIDEO BELOW).
THE PEOPLE SPOKE OUT!
THE MAYOR DODGES THE QUESTION…BIGTIME!
It may be a laid back little beach town, but Imperial Beach suddenly finds itself in the middle of an international hot topic.
Last month, Mayor Serge Dedina issued a proclamation, declaring Imperial Beach to be a “Welcoming City.”
The “Welcoming Communities” program is an Obama initiative intended to resettle large numbers of refugees from Syria, the rest of the Middle East and Latin America in cities and towns across America as part of his “fundamental transformation.”
At the time, Mayor Dedina thought it was pretty harmless, but some people believe it goes deeper than that.
They’re suspicious that the words, “welcoming city,” is another way of saying, “sanctuary city.”
But Mayor Dedina says that a small town, and a relatively poor town, like Imperial Beach couldn’t handle such a thing, even if they wanted.
But that’s not good enough for some skeptics. They want the proclamation erased.
