Council votes 7 to 1 to oppose Minutemen in El Paso
Anti-Minutemen Resolution
Tuesday, August 23, 2005
by Jon Humbert

The El Paso City Council put the line in the sand at
Tuesday's meeting, voting seven to one to oppose the
Minutemen in the city limits.

The Council heard from members of the community, and
at times, the dialogue was heated. Activist Lisa
Turner called the resolution a violation of the First
Amendment and called for the recall of Representatives
Steve Ortega, Beto O'Rourke and Eddie Holguin.

The measure only puts into words the opinion of the
council. It is not a legal ordinance and does not
force the Minutemen, or supporters from the the city.
It only states the Council's opposition to the group.

NewsChannel Nine was provided with a copy of the
