Is there a war brewing between the State of California and the federal government? Have Liberal lunatics finally taken over the entire California insane asylum?
It appears so. There is a saying that goes, “Are they stupid because they're Liberals…or are they Liberals because they're stupid?” That question may be answered soon enough in the affirmative for both as the secession of the largest populace state may be in rapid forward motion!
Governor Jerry Brown of California has finally delivered on his promise to Leftist loons everywhere when he signed the misguided, dangerous legislation presented to him by California General Assembly President Pro Tempore Kevin de Leon transforming the 31st state into a sanctuary state, willing to go against its own citizenry and the US Government to spare those who are breaking federal immigration laws the humiliation of sending them back to their home country.
For a little bit of background, Kevin de Leon, a rabid Leftist in favor of illegal aliens literally stealing Social Security Numbers from other Hispanics (primarily in Puerto Rico) in order to live and work here under the radar, believes this is perfectly fine. Basically, these illegals purchase actual living persons' SSNs from a dealer on the street (in some cases illegals themselves working with sophisticated technology and printing/photography equipment). Often times, the numbers are lifted from minor children, but can be stolen from adults as well. They affix their actual names to the card, but use the stolen SSN. When they apply for jobs, the E-Verify system is used to eliminate that fraud with an alert that the name doesn't match the SSN. The problem is that the E-Verify system is only used in 14 states!
Kevin de Leon, who wrote this legislation and then presented it to the governor, went on the record on a radio interview saying that he neither viewed this identity theft as a big deal or a punishable felony crime. He then went on unbelievably to admit that his own family and friends had done so to obtain work. He flat-out admitted that he knew of many people who had committed Social Security fraud and identity theft, and there was never an investigation. He is still in office and maintains his well-paid nearly $200K annual salaried position.
Because of this sanctuary city bill being passed, both the Immigration & Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) are gearing up to begin arrests in the cities around the state of California! What are the details of this bill?
The state has now mandated that no law enforcement agent (local police, sheriff, or state police), government office, government worker, or prison staff can speak with designated federal officers who are investigating illegal aliens who have committed violent crimes and felonies. They are not allowed to provide information on their physical current or last-known addresses, telephone numbers, or even…get this…even whether or not they are currently incarcerated in the prison system! The prison population in California has been on a tear to release dangerous illegal criminals into the streets as well in order to avert having to turn over these people to federal authorities!
This is not only dangerous, it is plain evil, in my opinion. In addition to this, even when specific orders are issued by ICE officials for the state law enforcement to detain such dangerous criminals, the new bill actually instructs these local authorities to overtly defy these orders and allow the release of such individuals!
ICE agents have therefore issued an announcement that if the state refuses to assist them in getting these dangerous aliens off the streets and deported back to their home country, they will have no choice but to begin massive operations on the streets in every major city in an effort to round up these felons!
The head of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) says the agency will begin carrying out immigration raids in local neighborhoods and workplaces after California became a sanctuary state.
“ICE will have no choice but to conduct at-large arrests in local neighborhoods and at worksites, which will inevitably result in additional collateral arrests, instead of focusing on arrests at jails and prisons where transfers are safer for ICE officers and the community,” acting ICE Director Tom Homan wrote in a statement obtained by Breitbart Texas. “ICE will also likely have to detain individuals arrested in California in detention facilities outside of the state, far from any family they may have in California.”
The threat comes days after California Governor Jerry Brown delivered the gold to illegal aliens by making the entire state a sanctuary. Brown signed SB54, the “California Values Act” into law last week making it illegal, after January 1, 2018, for a local law enforcement officer to ask about a person’s immigration status during the course of routine interactions with the public, Breitbart News’ Michelle Moons reported. The law also prohibits law enforcement officials from complying with ICE issued immigration detainers.
For the first time in a long time, Americans are WITH their government! That should tell you how wrong this bill is for the state and the country. Although reports are not hitting the mainstream media, this bill has a very weak support amongst its legal citizenry and people have reported feeling pressured and even bullied if they show an unwillingness to support SB54.
The governor, in an effort to calm Californians who are in opposition to the bill, has issued a statement that, honestly, is an outright lie.
“This bill does not prevent or prohibit Immigration and Customs Enforcement or the Department of Homeland Security from doing their own work in any way,” Gov. Brown said after in the signing law and a signing statement.
That comment did not placate the DHS which released that it is jumping right into the fray and getting to work on enforcing US immigration laws immediately.
DHS officials responded quickly and said the will go right to work in California.
“Ultimately, SB54 helps shield removable aliens from immigration enforcement and creates another magnet for more illegal immigration, all at the expense of the safety and security of the very people it purports to protect,” Homan stated.
SB54 will negatively impact ICE operations in California by nearly eliminating all cooperation and communication with our law enforcement partners in the state, voiding the delegated authority that the Orange County Sheriff’s Office has under the 287g program, and prohibiting local law enforcement from contracting with the federal government to house detainees.”
DHS said the department and ICE remain committed to its public safety mission. “We will continue to do our sworn duty to seek out dangerous criminal aliens and other immigration violators. ICE seeks straightforward cooperation with all sheriffs and local elected officials,” Homan concluded. “This misguided legislation will severely undermine those efforts.”
Last week, the FBI wrapped up a very large illegal round-up operation in 10 cities across the country, as well as a massive bust of illegals in New York City where they paired with US Attorney's Office of Southern New York to nab over 500 dangerous illegals.
Rather than wait for a long, drawn-out court case, which is what the governor was hoping for, the DHS and ICE are slogging it out in the streets and, in a sense, doing precisely the very thing that Brown and de Leon were trying to avoid. The state, in essence, has declared war on US citizens through this very dangerous legislation. The country has reacted by stating that they will not be deterred.
How long before the secession movement gains steam amongst its Liberal populace? Considering that a plurality of its large cities support this while the outlying rural and suburban areas don't, secession just may result in a bunch of tiny nations named Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego and Atascadero (basically running up and down the Diablo Mountain Range) being bordered off from the rest of the country with Communist-style guard towers, concertina wire and attack dogs in order to ward off those crazy Americans and their government.
Funny…but their idea of secession sounds a bit like “Build the Wall” advocates and some militia groups in Montana. Who knew the Liberals could be so…Right wing?
