Cleveland City Council took a vote Monday night, to take a stand.

Council members are officially on the record as opposing President Trump’s immigration ban, calling it “illegal and un-American”.

Hamed Eksiri of Wooster was there to watch and listen, with a story of his own.

He told WKYC Channel 3 News he’s been in the United States (lived in 3 of them as a matter of fact) from Iran since 2009 on a visa.

He said he’s weeks away from a green card.

He is a Northeast Ohio scientist who works to make cars safer and green.

His wife, Fateme, is a research scientist with a PHD in transportation and logistics.
