On Saturday, California Gov. Jerry Brown signed the Trust Act. It prohibits illegal aliens from being turned over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) authorities for possible deportation unless they have been charged with or convicted of a serious offense. ”While Washington waffles on immigration, California’s forging ahead,” Brown said. ”I’m not waiting.”

California is indeed forging ahead. Last Thursday, Brown signed a bill allowing illegal aliens to obtain drivers’ licenses. ”Millions of immigrant families have been looking forward to this day,” said Democratic Assemblyman Luis Alejo, who sponsored the bill. “It will allow them to go to work, go to school, take their kids to a doctor’s appointment without fear that they are going to have their car taken away from them, or worse, be put into immigration proceedings.”

Not “immigrant families.” Illegal immigrant families.

Brown was even busier on Saturday. In addition to the Trust Act, he signed another seven bills aimed at blurring, if not eradicating the distinction between law-abiding legal immigrants and their illegal counterparts. The measures included imposing restrictions on those who charge fees to help illegals gain legal status–and the ability to criminally charge employers who threaten to report an individual’s immigration status, if that threat is used to “induce fear.” Given that it is against the law to hire illegals, Brown and his fellow Democrats have essentially given illegals the power to threaten their employers.

Even more remarkably, Brown also signed a bill that permits the California Supreme Court to grant law licenses to illegal aliens.

Illegal-alien rights activists were ecstatic. “Today marks the dawn of a new era in California’s immigrant communities,” said Reshma Shamasunder, director of the California Immigrant Policy Center. Her organization declared 2013 the “year of the immigrant” in California.

Tom Ammiano (D-San Francisco) who sponsored the Trust Act, rationalized its passage in a September press release. “Federal officials have held people whose worst alleged violation was selling tamales without a permit or having a barking dog,” he explained. “Even crime victims have been deported. We need to end that to bring back trust between our communities and the local law enforcement agencies supposed to protect them.”

That press release was a window into the mindset of the activist American left, for whom the rule of law its little more than an inconvenient impediment that can be ignored in pursuit of “nobler” ambitions. It further noted that the Trust Act was crafted to defy a federal immigration program known as Secure Communities, or S-Comm. The release bemoaned the fact that more the 50,000 “contributing Californians” had been deported “though they had not been convicted of any crime, or only minor crimes.” In other words, being in the country illegally is completely irrelevant.

Maybe the Great State Of California should succeed from the country and try to pay their own overspending and expenses without our tax money supporting them then I think they can let anyone in and pay their costs themselves.

We can only hope for the San Andreas Fault to happen.  Obama will redistribute money from responsible States to pay for the loser States like California.  BO already redistributed hundreds of Millions to bailout Detroit, many others soon to follow.

Between the criminal mexicans and the war on law abiding gun ownership, the Kalifornia
"Government" has finally made it time for this life long Californian to move. Texas is gaining
Another taxPAYER! Will the LAST person to leave Kalifornia please turn off the lights.

It is the next step to thier painful slow end.  UNfortunately the rest of us will be forced to help them out of a hole with our production and hard work.  A state should float or sink dependant upon its own actions.  HOw will voters ever learn the ramifications of what they vote for if the rest of the country keeps bailing them out?

LET'S HAVE AN OCCUPY SIT IN AT SAC CAPITAL IN CA, STAY UNTIL BROWN IS REMOVED.  TAHRIR SQUARE CAN BE SAC, TRUCKERS, BIKERS, CITIZENS WHO CARRY THE FLAG AND THE BURDENS OF DEMS WHO HVE. RUN CA FOR 32 YEARS.  TELL FOX "AMERICANS R COMING".

Another waste of human flesh just like Obama!

LET'S BRING NATIONAL TO LOCAL.  STARVE THE BEAST, RETIRE AD TAKE ALL YOUR DOLLARS AND HUNKER DOWN.  DO NOT BUY, DO NOT GO TO FAST FOOD, DO NOT SPEND CASH THIS WEEKEND AT ALL!!  GAS UP, FOOD UP AND STARVE BROWN'S EFFORTS.  WE CAN GET RID OF MANY ILLEGALS BY STARVING THEM OUT!  THEY WILL MOVE ON, SIT IN AT THE CAPITAL UNTIL BROWN IS REMOVED, LET SAC BE OUR TAHRIR SQUARE, TRUCKERS, BIKERS, CITIZENS THT CARRY THE FLAG!!

So what else is new? It's already a known fact that Kalifornia is a foreign nation, with businesses fleeing to Texas in droves. It will soon become the largest welfare state in American history.

I left the Liberal Northeast, C.T. to be exact. !! A consevative could not buy a seat up there !! Gov. Malloy must have  Gov. Brown as his 'Mentor' ... C.T. has now turned into a 'nanny State. I moved to a Freedom loving 'Dark Red' southern State !! It was a expensive move for me , but you put a price on 'Liberty and Freedom' ?? I simply have decided I will not live in a 'Progressive ,Liberal Nanny State that has absolutely 'NO' regard for the 'Bill of Rights' or the Constitution !!!! Much happier Now !!!!

BRAVO MARC, U DID THE RIGHT THING. SO MANY HVE. LEFT CA ALONG W/MOST BUSINESS.  THIS STATE WILL IMPLODE.  AS WE LEAVE WE NEED TO MAKE SAC OUR TAHRIR SQUARE AND LEAVE W/A LASTING IMPRESSION.  I HAVE MY PEELOSI MASK AND A REID MASK IT IS GOING 2 B A SCARY HALLOWEEN AND WE R READY, WE HVE. ALL OUR  DUCKS IN A ROW, RETIRED AND READY TO NOT PAY TAXES AGAIN, BABYBOOMERS WILL NOT B THE FOOLS OF HUSSEIN OBAMA, GOOD LUCK MEXIFORNIA.

So ironic that AZ is targeted by Obama & his minions, attacking our ENFORCEMENT of Immigration Laws, but it's totally fine that CA can pass their own laws, refusing to acknowledge or enforce the laws. We need to pass a law here, that if illegals want to stay in this country, they MUST move to CA. AND, it is prohibited to let any Californians move to our a States. After all, they did vote in Pelosi, Feinstein, Obama and all the other idiots, so they have a very poor track record of voting into office, people who actually have any intelligence or integrity. ("We MUST vote in Obamacare so we know what's in it.") Just can't get any dumber than that.

California is going to regret electing this screaming liberal as gov....As a previous writer said "no wonder California is going broke", if it is not already there. If one robs a bank...it is illegal....If one sneaks into a country....It is also illegal........

ALERT ALERT

Fact Check:   'Joe Biden Claims ‘We Didn’t Lock People Up In Cages’

CLAIM: Former Vice President Joe Biden claimed, on immigration: “We didn’t lock people up in cages.”

VERDICT: FALSE. The “cages” were built by the Obama-Biden administration.

Univision moderator Jorge Ramos asked Biden at the third Democrat debate at Texas Southern University in Houston, Texas, why Latinos should trust him after the Obama administration continued deporting “undocumented immigrants.”

Biden claimed that the Obama administration’s policies were more humane than those of President Donald Trump: “We didn’t lock people up in cages,” he said.

In fact, the “cages” were built by the Obama administration to deal with a surge of unaccompanied minors who crossed the border illegally in 2014.

Originally, the Obama administration was “warehousing” children — literally — in overwhelmed Border Patrol facilities. Breitbart News broke the story of the surge, which was partly triggered by Obama’s policy of allowing illegal alien children who entered the country as minors to stay in the country (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA).

The above photo was published by the Associated Press in June 2014, and the photo below is of Obama’s Secretary of Homeland Security, Jeh Johnson, touring a Border Patrol facility with “cages.”

The “cages” are chain-link enclosures in Border Patrol processing facilities that are meant to protect children from adults in custody. They are not permanent accommodations.

In mid-2018, as the Trump administration began enforcing a “zero tolerance” policy that stopped the “catch-and-release” policy of letting illegal aliens go after they were arrested. Detaining adults and children meant that children had to be processed separately; the enclosures prevented adults from harming children.

As Breitbart News reported at the time, children were not housed in “cages.” They were processed and then taken to shelters, where they were given medical care, toiletries, education, recreation, and counseling, and where staff attempted to find relatives or sponsors to whom they could be released.

Democrats began tweeting images of “kids in cages” to condemn the Trump administration. Journalists, too, shared those images.

One problem: they were taken during the Obama administration.

Public outrage at the images led President Trump to end the policy, and require families to be detained together.

Democrats keep repeating the mistake, however: in July, they had to delete a tweet that used an image from the Obama era and cited the “inhumane treatment” of children by the Trump administration.

Republicans argue that not detaining illegal aliens is actually the cruel policy, because it encourages migrants to undertake a dangerous journey, often guided by cartels and smugglers.

As Breitbart News’ Alana Mastrangelo noted recently:

But what’s worse than “cages,” however, are reports of migrant children also being handed over to human traffickers during the Obama administration — while Biden was vice president — according to the New York Times. Between October 2013 and July 2015 alone, nearly 80,000 unaccompanied children from Central American countries were detained by U.S. authorities.

It remains unclear how many of the tens of thousands of children were handed over to human traffickers — including sex traffickers — during that span of nearly two years, as those cases are reportedly not tracked.

“Others were ransomed by the very smugglers to whom their families paid thousands of dollars to sneak them into the United States,” reported the New York Times in 2015, during Obama’s presidency and Biden’s vice presidency. “Some lost limbs during the journey or found themselves sold into sexual slavery.”

Biden told voters in South Carolina last month that he would close all border detention facilities, guaranteeing that the migrant flow would continue.
