California does the unthinkable

September 19, 2017 |

Saturday, the California Senate passed a bill to declare California a “sanctuary state,” and Gov. Jerry Brown is expected to sign it. This means all state officials will be in revolt against federal law and refuse to cooperate with federal immigration authorities, putting the welfare of illegal aliens, even those wanted by federal authorities, above the rights and safety of their own citizens. The bill is appropriately named “The California Values Act.” The bill does include some exceptions for those accused of the most violent or serious crimes. So good news, Californians: you will only be at the mercy of criminal illegal aliens who are accused of less violent crimes.

Didn’t we already have a big argument over whether states were subservient to the federal government back in the 1860s? And then, I believe there was an echo of that involving schools in the 1950s. And only a few years ago, we saw the federal government suing and seeking to jail Arizona officials for actually trying to enforce federal laws that the federal government refused to enforce. This type of defiance of the law doesn’t usually work out well for states. You’d think California citizens would hold their leaders to a high standard. But too many of those who do have already moved to Texas.

    So since California is a border state and now a self Proclaimed Sanctuary State, doesn't that mean to step one foot over the border from Mexico into California is to step directly into Sanctuary.... the same thing as an open border?

    Short of a military takeover, I think it only appropriate for the Federal Government to withhold any all revenue payments to a governing body that does not enforce duly passed laws. Also, those State government officials who voted to approve this action should be charged with aiding and abetting for every infraction this action creates a violation of law. This would be true of citizens, why should it not be true of its elected representatives.

    The problem with California now which the far left liberal democratic party has insured would happen, is that we now have more people who "Vote for a living, rather than work for a living". They vote for everything our Government puts up on the ballot that will give them more "free" services and benefits. California is lost. I know the books here have been "cooked" for so long that no one really knows just how far in debt our state is...but when some of it actually does leak out, the media just blows that off like everything else here.

    I am stuck living in this living hell that used to truly be the Golden state. Thanks to Jerry Brown and the leftists, this state is past the point of turning it around. California is circling the tank.

    Mr. Huckabee how can Gov. Brown and all his Cronies run California like a Dictator run Country. We here in California are sick and tired of being treated like second class slaves. All this state cares about is raising taxes on the hard working Citizens so they can turn around and give all the Illegal Aliens everything they do not deserve.

    The Democratic Party are encouraging breaking laws, when will justice be served to all Law breakers.

    My Father came her in 1956, and it took him 18 months to come here legally.
    I have a big heart, but enough is enough.
    Every single Illegal Immigrant has no grounds to demand anything from these United States of America.
    If they are here Illegally, they need to be Deported, and must wait in line to enter the USA Legally.
    Why do we tolerate them abusing our systems that are meant for US Citizens?

    There needs to be New Laws passed for all Immigrants wanting to come to America, see some ideas below...
    1 - Must register as Republicans for the first 5 years after being accepted.
    2 - No government Benefit's or handouts for the first 5 years
    3 - Must learn English (3 month probation, if no sign of improvement, deportation)

    We need to take our State and Country back, No games, No excuses.
    I know it sounds harsh, but if these Immigrants really want to be Americans it should be earned.

    When did it become the obligation of the hard working class to support all these free loaders that are receiving Government benefits when they have not even, We Are Tired of It!!! PERIOD!!!

    Mike, I think that the president has bigger fish to fry then DACA. I think that if he had gone after criminal illegals like he promised he would when i voted for him, that he wouldn't be having this problem. Please, MR President, , be reasonable.

    I was born in California at Castle Air Force Base in 1958 and have lived here my entire life and for the most part in the Central Valley. I sometimes think I'm in a bad dream. That this can't be happening. When Senator Kevin de León stood on the senate floor and stated "more than half my family would be eligible for deportation under Trumps executive order, because they got a false social security card, they got a false identification, they got a false driver’s license prior to us passing AB 60, they got a false green card, and anyone who has family members who are undocumented knows that almost entirely everybody has secured some sort of false identification.” I knew we had lost control of our state. Unfortunately I have to many ties to leave California at this time.

    I wonder if the feds will close all the military bases out of California . They do not want to up hold federal laws then they do not need military bases there . We will see how fast they can come up with military protection .

    No one asked the California citizens what they want, but over 14,000 illegals swamped Nancy Pelosi for allowing President Trump to repeal DACA when in fact he gave them 6 months to make it legal. The illegals have gotten their way on every issue in this state and only hire from their own tribe. What a mockery of justice. Gov. Brown has no sense of justice and only one side of the parties, the democrats, get a say in matters.

    I live in California and am not happy with what the California legislature and Governor Brown are doing. Not all of California is democratic, but a lot of it is, especially in the Bay Area. There are still a lot of conservative people in California who voted for President Trump. The federal government should stop sending funds to California. That would make the people in charge of California tax its citizens more, and then maybe people would wake up and see who they voted for, it it is not too late!

    Defund California!! Send all illegals there and give the legal residents 6 months to leave before California is no longer part of the US! No passports for them after that, no postal service, no law enforcement money, no health care money, etc. Cut 'em off COMPLETELY!!!! They don't want to follow Federal law, then they don't need to be part of this country.

    I live in NorCal-Sacramento area-& think our elected reps -at least the dems- are driving us out. We are completely unrepresented & the dems are passing all kinds of bills! It's insane! They r running amok. I believe what they're doing is illegal, but I don't know what to do about it. There is a Repub rep called Travis Allen that is as outraged, but can't do anything to stop the dem train speeding for a cliff. I don't want to think about where this will all end up- chaos-revolution- I don't know. I think we will have to rise up although we will be called racist & bigots- to make ourselves heard & it won't make ANY diff. We plan to move out of state once we retire. It's so sad to this cali native that I am unwelcome here. It is hostile to anyone who is not a dem.

    If I understand the Financial Analysts correctly, California is balancing on the edge of insolvency, and yet the collective Government makes it a safe bet they will not opt for change to the path of imposed Socialism and a lack of fiscal restraint. Of course they are counting on Washington to bail them out with Billions of freshly printed greenbacks....! Would have to loudly voice my disapproval of spreading the cost of California liberalism over the rest of the country......Grrrrrr.....NO!!

    Does the government have the right to cut off all federal funding including welfare to States that are thumbing their "noses" at the Federal Government?

    What happens in a case like this? Who actually has authority concerning the illegal immigration of an alien, California or the U S government.

    If state officials do something that goes against federal law, then why don't federal law enforcement officials consider that a crime and penalize the offending party like they would for any other crime?

    I am from California and I hate the fact that we cannot have a say in what is passed in our state...when did the few get to make the laws?...what happened to "of the people, by the people?
