The city of Orange, Calif. voted earlier this week to "Stand with Arizona" after the council approved two resolutions (4-0 vote, 1 absent) that support Arizona's new immigration enforcement law. The city council declared Orange a rule of law city and several NumbersUSA activists were there to offer their thoughts to the council.
Nearly 40 speakers addressed the council, the majority of them voicing an opinion to back Arizona. The two resolutions were introduced by Councilman Jon Dumitru.
"I would really like for our City Council to memorialize that we not only support the good folks of Arizona but that we also support that they are doing something about illegal immigration," Dumitru, whose father is a legal immigrant, said.
Mayor of Orange Mayor Carolyn Cavecche also supported the resolutions.
"I am incredulous that any California cities would boycott Arizona for finally saying enough is enough," Mayor Cavecche said.
Orange is the second city in Orange County California to "Stand with Arizona." The city of Yorba Linda passed a resolution last week.
