PLANO (KRLD) - A group demanding the recall of a Plano city councilman will present its petition to the council today. 

Activist collective "Our Plano, One Plano", is trying to oust Councilman Tom Harrison over a controversial social media post he made.

Harrison linked to a video of students wearing hijabs and wrote, "share if you think Trump should ban Islam in American schools." 

Harrison was censured by the city council but says he will not resign. Activists claim they've collected the signatures necessary to force a recall election, and verified that each signature matches an address and voter registration in Plano.
