National Petition Drive Launched to Save Mt. Soledad Cross
ANN ARBOR, MI – In an effort to save the famous 43-foot Mt. Soledad Cross and the granite memorial walls surrounding it as a National Veterans Memorial, the Thomas More Law Center has launched a national petition drive requesting President Bush to take the land under the federal government’s powers of eminent domain. The petition will be sent directly to President Bush.
The petition requests the President to direct the Secretary of the Interior to “immediately begin legal proceedings” to take the land by eminent domain.
The petition quotes from a May 22, 2001 letter from President George W. Bush describing the Soledad site as a “place to reflect on our past, be inspired by true American patriots, and offer war veterans our heartfelt gratitude for the freedom we all enjoy today.” You are invited to view and sign the petition by clicking here.
