Tea Party & Conservative Groups Across Ohio Tell Governor Kasich –
Stand Strong against Federal Relocation of Illegal Immigrants”

Lake County, Ohio – As the failure to secure our southern border has allowed thousands of illegal aliens to cross into the United States and the federal government is attempting to relocate them in various states, Tea Party & Conservative groups across Ohio are unified in their voices to stop Ohio from being one of the dumping grounds.

“As this crisis continues, we must speak out against the forced relocation of these illegal aliens by the federal government, stated Arzella Melnyk, of The Ohio Grassroots Rally Team. “Together with over 30 Tea Party and Conservative groups from across Ohio, we are asking Governor John Kasich to stand strong and resist any federal relocation attempts of these illegal immigrants within the borders of our state.” (Letter attached as PDF)

With the Administration requesting close to $4 billion to relocate and house these illegal immigrants, driving our country even deeper into debt, there is a growing chorus of American citizens from across the political spectrum who are starting to speak out and wonder “what about us?”

Americans can no longer afford to bear the social or fiscal burden of illegal immigration, caused by the failure of this Administration to protect us from the ill effects of illegal immigration. Governors of several other states are taking a stand against the relocation of these individuals into their state; we want Governor Kasich to take a stand for residents of Ohio.

*** Ohio residents are encouraged to join us and sign our petition to Governor Kasich telling him to stand strong and resist federal relocation of illegal aliens to Ohio at http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/say-no-to-federal-relocation-of-illegal-immigrants

Governor John Kasich
Riffe Center, 30th Floor
77 South High Street
Columbus, OH 43215
RE: Illegal Immigrant Relocation / Ohio
Dear Governor Kasich,
This letter concerns the illegal immigration crisis happening on our southern border, in which a massive influx of immigrants is seeking unauthorized entry to the United States. In addition to our outrage over the deliberate role the federal government is taking in this effort that violates our immigration laws, there are serious concerns regarding the government’s attempts to relocate illegal aliens in states across the U.S., including Ohio.
With the federal government actively seeking locations across the country to accommodate this unprecedented overflow of illegal adult immigrants and unaccompanied minors, Ohio should not be allowed to be used as a dumping ground, nor should the residents of Ohio be forced to bear any part of the burden of the ongoing border crisis created by the current Administration in Washington D.C.
Besides the negative fiscal impact it will have on our state, it will create an even further strain on educational, health, safety, and other vital services provided by our state to Ohio residents. Illegal aliens are being admitted into the United States with contagions, and TSA has suspended photo i.d. requirements for illegals boarding commercial aircraft. Some of the illegals are criminals, belong to gangs, and have no legal relative in the United States. Ohioans should not be exposed to the health hazards and security risks posed by such aliens.
Therefore, we the undersigned Tea Party & Liberty group coordinators from Ohio respectfully request that you exercise all Federal & State Constitutional power and authority afforded to you as Governor of this state, to vigorously resist any federal relocation attempts of these individuals within the borders of our state.
In closing, by standing strong against any federal relocation attempts, it will show by action, that you truly put legal Ohio residents first.
Regards,
Arzella Melnyk
