Guest Post by John C. Velisek USN (RET):
Governor “Moonbeam” Jerry Brown has made it legal for illegal aliens to get the right to vote by just getting a drivers license. On October 10, 2015, Brown signed that New Motor Voter Act (Assembly Bill 1461) Estimates are around 2 million illegals in the state now can vote for Democrats to continue and expand the benefits that have no right to and is paid by the California taxpayer. What does it take to register to vote? In California, you must be at least 16 years old and be able to prove your identity and California Residency. All the proof takes is a matricula consular card issued by the Mexican government.
President Trump was ridiculed and laughed at when he claimed he may have also won the popular vote if illegals had not been counted. (VoteFraud.org).
a non-partisan group has already shown that almost 5 million illegals may have voted in the last election.
The laws in California that pertain to immigration are clearly unconstitutional and inhibit the agencies involved from performing the duties assigned to them by federal law and the Constitution.
Three examples are the following:
Public Safety Omnibus Bill -AB103
AB103 was passed in California to prohibit local law enforcement from operating with ICE which prevents the federal government from performing its duties. This bill, in essence, allows the review of national immigration policies by the state, including access to privileged federal records that are controlled by ICE, allowing California to regulate federal immigration laws. Nancy Pelosi has stated that the attacks on California are unacceptable in the federal system of government created by the founders, ignoring the US Constitution Article I section 8 that allows the federal government to regulate commerce with foreign nations.
SB54 transformed the state of California into a sanctuary for illegal aliens hoping to avoid deportation contrary to federal law. It prohibits state and local agencies from sharing information to take part in any policy about immigration, in violation of federal law. It prohibits state and local law enforcement officials from providing any information to federal immigration authorities about the release date of illegal immigrant criminals who may be in local custody. This is a violation of a law enacted by Congress 8 USC 1873.
Immigration Worker Protection Act –AB450
Attorney General Xavier Bercerra claims this will protect California citizens. Nothing is further from the truth. This is for the protection of illegal workers and gives employers time to clear out the illegals before ICE can come in showing a false compliance with the federal law.
It comes down to a progressive socialist cabal in the higher reaches of California government encroaching on federal law to try to dismantle the rules and regulations for immigration. The Latino caucus has vowed to fight in the streets against Trump and anyone who threatens sanctuary city policies and the unconstitutional benefits being given to those here illegally and a vast number of criminals. This is shown in numbers compiled by DHS. They show that California has quietly released close to 50 gang members by not contacting ICE or ignoring detainers placed on these criminals who are members of MS-13.
Couple this with the Los Angeles City Council that requires disclosure of any company assisting the building the border wall so that the LA City Council can sever any work being done with these companies. Gov. Jerry Brown describing the cities and counties now fighting against sanctuary cities as “lowlifes” and you can understand why the residents of the state are leaving by the van load.
California has become a third world basket case run by a cabal of progressive socialist extremists that have lead to crime rates in places like San Francisco jumping by 20%.
The deep blueness of the state has been facing resistance from the more local conservative population. Cities and counties that are fighting back on sanctuary cities are growing daily, with San Diego County being the latest in a long string of towns and counties. The anger over being ignored by the elites in the gated communities in the bluest of blue portions of the sate will not last much longer. The opposition is rising, and contrary to the future that these leftists have envisioned spreading across the country, California is no longer the bellwether of the nation, not a picture of what is to come nationally, but is more a picture of failure at some of the highest levels in any state government.
