Online petitions debate Mayor Long’s handling of immigration transfers

Two petitions are circulating online concerning Murrieta Mayor Alan Long and how he disseminated information about immigrant transfers to the Murrieta Border Patrol processing station during a press conference on June 30.

Petition opposing Long

One petition started by Murrieta resident Nancy Brenner wants the city council to censure Long for violating its Code of Conduct policy. The petition claims that Long’s statements during the press conference violated the policy by inciting a hostile anti-immigration mob to protest near the station the next day. The resulting protest prevented immigrant transfers to the station and national media coverage of the protest damaged the city’s reputation.

Brenner launched her petition on July 9 at petitions.moveon.org and over 1,600 people have signed it. She declined an interview stating that her petition speaks for itself.

    The City can kiss away revenue from people avoiding or boycotting Murrieta. They failed to help a federal facility in their city conduct business in favor of bringing a political circus to town. Mayor Long invited the protest and the police did not prepare to assist the federal agency accepted in the city by the council and citizens. Had long shown any regret, the City could move on from this mistake, but it seems more happy to be the epicenter of hate. From jewel of the valley to the tool of the valley. Facebook even has an active Boycott Murrieta page where people are helping the refugees rather than providing more fear for moms and little kids. Alan Long should be Mr. Wilson in the next city parade and he can be yelling at (what’s Spanish for Dennis?) to get off his lawn.

    I support any attempts to pressure the federal government to follow the law.

    I support the Mayor in his handling of the immigration protests. It is about time people quit being such sheep and stood up for what they believe. The Federal Government is not fulfilling it’s responsibility to protect the people- close the borders.
