On Wednesday of this week, the Governor of California, Jerry “Moonbeam” Brown, called duly passed and signed federal immigration laws “racist”, and went on to say that obeying those laws was a racist act. It’s strange that the good governor had no problem with immigration laws when Barack Obama was disregarding them and in fact got a Supreme Court ruling that prevented Arizona from protecting their own border with Mexico, in lieu of immigration regulation being a federal, or in other words, a President Obama, responsibility, as waves of people streamed north across the border. But that‘s what Democrats do.
Moonbeam has been egging on the Trump administration since President Trump took office. He recently declared California to be a sanctuary state, and ordered all law enforcement officers hired by the state of California, to NOT cooperate in any way with federal ICE officers who may enter the state to capture illegal aliens, especially those who have committed crimes more serious than their simply being here illegally. But this latest outburst, in which he proclaimed a state of war between California and the federal government, was a direct response to Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who was in California to speak with law enforcement officers in an appeal for reason with the state politicians, and insist that they obey the laws that are on the books in order to protect the citizens of California, as well as the ICE agents dispatched to assure the law is being obeyed, from harm at the hands of violent criminal gangs.
The politicians in California seem to be literally insane in their determination to undermine their own legal authority and California’s own laws by defying Washington and its immigration laws, all of which laws were passed by Republican and Democrat, bi-partisan votes, and which were verbally reinforced by a Democrat president, Barack Obama, in his aforementioned suit against Arizona to back down on border enforcement two years ago. And Obama even quoted the Constitution when he reminded Arizona that only the federal government could make or enforce immigration law. And indeed, Obama’s own presidency also reinforced the principle that only the President, not a mere governor, could also disregard federal immigration law on a whim and open our national borders for free passage.
California’s junior Senator, Kamala Harris, recently said that California “represents the future” for America. Thinking people believe, or rather fear, that she may be correct in predicting that California is America’s future. The strongest candidate the Democrat party had in the last presidential election was a Socialist, Bernie Sanders, and if Democrats have their way, all of America may have the same homeless problem, the same drug addiction problem, the same poverty problem, the same illegal alien problem, the same general lawlessness and the same poverty problem as one can find in today’s Los Angeles and San Francisco, if Democrats once again occupy the White House. It’s no stretch of the imagination to realize that the current radical, Democrat party that has destroyed the beautiful state of California, will lead the nation to the same horrific destination that Venezuela and its Socialist government is experiencing today. It’s a shame, but it’s what Democrats tend to do.
