California Makes U.S. Citizenship Obsolete

148084518_8On 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.

For many California jurisdictions, federal immigration law has been irrelevant for quite some time. Santa Clara, San Francisco and Los Angeles counties have already embraced the provisions of the Trust Act. In December 2012, LA County Sheriff Lee Baca announced he would no longer honor federal immigration law. His actions, along with those of the aforementioned counties, were based on a legal directive issued the same month by California Attorney General Kamala Harris. Harris contended that local law enforcement communities were not obligated to comply with S-Comm.

ICE released a statement in reaction to Harris’s ruling. “The federal government alone sets these priorities and places detainers on individuals arrested on criminal charges to ensure that dangerous criminal aliens and other priority individuals are not released from prisons and jails into our communities,” it said.

The federal government’s priorities are tellingly selective. When the state of Arizona passed SB 1070, a law that allowed law enforcement officials to inquire about proof of residence from those detained for other legitimate reasons, Eric Holder’s Department of Justice (DOJ) sued the state. The DOJ won a partial victory when the Supreme Court ruled that asking people to produce proof they are in the country legally if they have been stopped for another legitimate reason is constitutional, but Justice Anthony Kennedy determined that immigration law per se — including the decision not to enforce the law — remains exclusively under federal jurisdiction.

The likelihood that the DOJ will file a similar lawsuit against California for its decision to openly defy federal immigration law? Zero.

In a temporary burst of sanity, Gov. Brown did veto one bill sponsored by Assemblyman Bob Wieckowski (D-Fremont). AB 1401 would have allowed lawful permanent residents who are not citizens to serve on juries. Brown decided that jury duty, like voting, should be reserved exclusively for Americans. Wieckowski was disappointed. “It is fair and just that they be asked to share in the obligation to do jury duty, just as they serve in our courts, schools, police departments and armed forces,” Wieckowski said.

On the other hand, nothing is forever. Last year Brown vetoed an earlier version of the Trust Act, contending it allowed those convicted of serious crimes to slip through the cracks. Brown changed his mind after the legislature added crimes such as child abuse, gang-related crime, drug trafficking, weapon sales, using children to sell drugs and aggravated federal felonies to the list of offenses that would trigger a hold of an illegal for ICE. In other words, state legislators had previously tried to pass the law absent those categories. One imagines it’s only a matter of time before a “tweak” of Wieckowski’s bill will have Brown changing his mind once again.

Kristin Williamson of the Federation for American Immigration Reform, a group that tries to reduce both legal and illegal immigration, wasn’t on board with Brown’s efforts to defy federal law. “Californians, regardless of their immigration status, are now left unprotected from deportable criminal aliens, and ICE agents will be forced into unnecessarily dangerous situations trying to track down illegal aliens who were already safely in the custody of state and local law enforcement,” she said.

That’s assuming ICE has the impetus to do so. It is no secret that the Obama administration has set the standard for selective law enforcement, highlighted by the president’s unilateral decision to establish the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) by executive order. The DREAM Act-like program provides de facto amnesty for thousands of illegal aliens ostensibly younger than 30 who arrived in United States before age 16, and have lived here for at least five years continuously.

The word “ostensibly” is critical. A Freedom of Information Act request filed by Judicial Watch procured documents revealing that comprehensive background checks will be replaced by “lean and lite” checks aimed at accommodating the flood of amnesty applications enabled by the president. Those documents also reveal that immediate relatives of DACA applicants could be approved for amnesty, a concept known as “chain migration.” Chain migration substantially increases the number of illegal aliens who can sidestep immigration law.

And while the nation remains distracted by the government shutdown and the debt ceiling, five separate immigration-related bills are surreptitiously working their way through the Republican-controlled House, only one of which addresses border security. Moroever, a consortium of business leaders, including New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg, are pressuring House Republicans from Southern states to enact comprehensive immigration reform. Furthermore, the same national park the Obama administration made off-limts to WWII veterans only a week ago, was opened up for immigration advocates, who held a rally and concert there yesterday.

One of the historical hallmarks of tyrannical regimes is selective law enforcement. In California, leftist Gov. Jerry Brown has signed bills into law that have enshrined selective enforcement with regard to illegal aliens, violating federal immigration law in the process. His equally leftist Attorney General Kamala Harris has also decided the state will do whatever it wishes in terms of complying with federal law. Both of them do so with the utmost confidence that a compromised DOJ run by a corrupt Attorney General is more than willing look the other way. Eric Holder is confident he can look the other way because he has a “kindred soul” in President Obama, who unilaterally and unconstitutionally granted de facto amnesty to millions of illegal aliens, bypassing Congress in the process–even as that same Congress currently plots behind closed doors to reward millions of law-breakers in return for cheap votes and cheap labor.

This is where America stands in 2013. If left unchecked, one of the great ironies of all time may eventually be realized: millions of illegal aliens who have come to America to escape a Third World ethos, where the rule of law is supplanted by the rule of man, may discover, for all intents and purposes, they are right back where they started.

    The land of fruits and nuts has turned into the land of one big Tijuana toilet bowl. As more whites flee the golden state, the more it will resemble Mexico and all its accompanying problems. Governor Jerry Brown and all the government liberals are giving away this great state to hordes of low IQ, barrio-cultured peasants. But don’t worry, the Mexican invasion is guaranteed to visit your state too in the near future. You won’t have to travel to Tijuana anymore, Tijuana is coming to you.

    Hey, how’s that multiculturalism working for you?

      Don’t call the invaders, “Illegal immigrants” anymore…now it’s “undocumented Democrats”. Just to be accurate.

        good one bs77… you’re right!

          Our nation has actual laws against illegal immigration/ illegal entry but they are being ignored at every turn by the Federal Government

            our constitution has laws about securing the borders to protect “we the people” but Obama is just letting them in and asking the taxpayers to pay the bill. I wonder what he plans to shut down to obtain amnesty and get his way?

  • Chin Kim Chong

    Love this: “One of the historical hallmarks of tyrannical regimes is selective law enforcement”
    So Obamacare is a law and who doesn’t want to enforce it?

    • 11bravo

      The house has the power of the purse; it has nothing to do with enforcement. Get that weak tea of an argument out of here.

      • Chin Kim Chong

        So not paying to enforce the law is law enforcement

        • 11bravo

          AGAIN! The house has the power of the purse; it has nothing to do with enforcement. Get that weak tea of an argument out of here.
          Some laws are just implemented. Not enforcing immigration law is NOT ENFORCING a law, not if you defund INS.

          • Chin Kim Chong

            Again and again not funding the implementation is a way to stop enforcing the law. By the way the INS does not exist anymore that is history.

          • Gee

            No stupid it is not. The Executive branch could take the funds from non-law enforcement departments like Education, EPA, etc.

            The President has CHOSEN not to enforce the laws – he is the criminal

          • Chin Kim Chong

            So then the house has the power of the purse and they want to defund Education?
            WOW WOW WOW
            keep trying

          • trickyblain

            INS has not existed for more than a decade.

          • Headed4TheHills

            Uhm, technically correct and also incorrect. INS as an agency ceased to exist, but the workers just got a new acronym to work under – ICE.

            I do not think that he can think any more logically than a conman.

        • Gee

          Wrong answer. Congress does not have any authority to enforce laws – that is entirely the job of the Executive Branch.

          You obviously do not even know what the Constitution is let alone what it says.

          • Chin Kim Chong

            How the Executive Branch.could enforce the law with out funds?
            Defund your local police department and then ask them to enforce the law because it is in the constitution.
            That’s how retarded that sounds. Sorry.

    • Trappedincalifornia

      The US has laws making it illegal to enter the country without permission. Who doesn’t enforce these laws? The Obama Administration, that’s who.

      • Chin Kim Chong

        Obama is deporting immigrants faster than Bush.

    • Headed4TheHills

      Well, for one, Chairman Barry Maobama doesn’t want to enforce it. He has given a pass to big businesses (but note, not to small businesses). He gave a pass to govt employees (you know,that taxpayer funded subsidy which allows them to participate in Ocrapacare but not feel the pain of paying).

      The Republicans, on the other hand, want to do away with Barry’s signature economy killer. Notice that bit there, they did not say anything about not enforcing it initially,they wanted to REPEAL the train wreck before it went into effect.

      See how that works, the whole actually understanding the facts of something before posting drivel and looking like a total waste of breath?

      • Chin Kim Chong

        Defunding a law is equal to enforcing the law?
        Sure ..another bed story for the little kids

        • reader

          Exactly. This is not China. Get a copy of the Constitution. It’s there for a reason, dumbass.

    • ata777

      that would be president Obama, who “selectively” removed the employer mandate, and re-instated the insurance premium subsidy for Congress and their staffs. that both unconstitutional moves have been ignored by Democrats reveals the utter hypocrisy of their demanding respect for the law. nice try.

        • nomoretraitors

          And who is their Commander in Chief?
          Obama and Hagel have a certain degree of discretion in how available funds are spent, which explains why WW II vets were barred from visiting the WW II memorial yet the National Mall was open to advocates of “immigration reform” (AKA amnesty).

    • A Z

      Obamacare was passed in a lame duck session using massive bribes during the end of the year Holiday season, when public resistance could not be effectively galvanized.

      The bribes were the Nebraska kickback and the Louisiana purchase.

      The fight was prolonged to the point of exhaustion of the public. People simply cannot be reading the news 24/7 for 365 days a year to see what the representatives are doing. As Jerry Doyle says “they are just going to wait us out”

      Even the Chinese leadership sees Obama as a fool. They are pleading him not to tank the economy.

      (BTW China no longer has universal health care. They could not make it work. And when it did work, it actually did not work very well. There is nothing like seeing an endless parade of bodies being carried out of the hospital during an epidemic to disabuse a person thinking that government health care works. My guess is that is was a meningitis epidemic that should have been manageable. But no they let it burn itself out.)

    California is a example of liberalism gone awry. In another twenty years California will be a Mexican state parasitically living off of America just as Mexico does now. Liberalism and political correctness shows how stupid one can make human beings.
    Through the Triad of Propaganda, Education has dumbed children down into pathetic spineless adults, Media has confirmed the education propaganda to eliminate rational thought and Entertainment has reinforced the feel good emotions needed to cloud the minds.
    One only needs to look at California of fifty years ago when it was a vibrant growing economy with tremendous opportunity to anyone who wanted to grasp that opportunity. Today it is a dying bloated parasitic blight on the American landscape.
    As the decay of liberalism spreads the poor uneducated third world occupiers from the south northward one only has to see what the rest of the state will become.
    Americans sadly are too lazy and apathetic to wake up and stop this cancerous growth.

        I think I see your point. Cheap labor. Even Cesar Chavez was against illegal immigration, because his attempts at unionizing farm workers was greatly undermined by illegal immigration. I can see how some big business might be in favor of illegal immigration.

    Liberals with their kumbaya attitude don’t seem unaware of their self destruction. They couldn’t have picked a worse person to run that state. A scenic state with ideal climate & one of the worlds largest economy in itself. They’re losing real citizens to other states while converting theirs with uneducated, lower class, baby producing migrants. Unfortunately for other state, Cal feeds these illegals to the rest of the states who turning Liberal themselves don’t seem to mind.

  • Trappedincalifornia

    After 29 years in CA this is my last week here, we are moving out. CA is lost, don’t waste any more time on it, but look to your state and start now to save it from the collapse CA is now suffering. Crime, chaos, bankruptcy & loss of sovereignty is all CA has to look forward to now even though many of us fought long & hard here to stem the tide. If we’d had Govt support we might have won the day here, but you can’t fight an invasion of 20 million illegals AND your own President.

    The time is coming when the country must make a decision-Will we remain a free country or will we continue to open our borders granting Amnesty to anyone who shows up, drug cartels included.

          • Trappedincalifornia

            It is scary bad, but illegals do understand that some states like CA welcome them & other states like AL go out of their way to keep them out. It’s important every state work hard to make illegals feel unwelcome.

  • afanaglenn

    There must be something in the water in California, and it looks as though it is contagious, Oregon and Washington having more liberal leanings. Drivers licenses to illegals is the OPEN DOOR TO VOTER REGISTRATION WHICH IS THE REAL GOAL, a way of guaranteeing the continued election of democrats. The question is does a state law supersede a national law, and if not, who in the US justice department would press the issue? The answer is no one It is their objective as well..

  • trapper

    exactly! By voting Democrat these immigrants from Mexico push for the same type of system that created the government from which they are fleeing.

  • http://www.libertynewspost.com/ Liberty Newspost

    California is a Lawless State, aided by a Lawless President currently abiding over our Federal Government. Governor Brown has basically given rights to people who are breaking Federal and State laws by their very presence. Its a slippery slope we are on that can only lead to chaos and ruin.

  • 2wotvet

    Mexican immigrants are ready-made Republicans. They believe in traditional marriage, they believe that God has a role in America’s schools and government and they are Pro-life. Their leaning towards democrats is only due to the poverty they live in. Once they get out of it, and yes, Mexicans can get out of poverty, they will have no need for lefitst big government and their strong family values will make Republicans the majority party in America for the next century or beyond. It won’t be White, but it will know God’s place in America, and will stop at nothing to prevent genocide like abortion or perversions of nature like gay marriage.

    • defcon 4

      Hispanic/latino immigrants are no longer my concern. It’s the illegal and legal jihadi scum coming from anywhere in the muslime world.

    • Steeloak

      That is a Republican fantasy. Mexicans come from a country that was a one party socialist state for over 70 years under the PRI. Most major industries are or were state owned (PEMEX for example). Many basic items are price controlled or subsidized (like tortillas). Like many liberal Americans who live their personal lives as conservatives, Mexicans want socialism and will vote Democrat 2 to 1.
      Legalizing the 11+ million illegals here will turn America into a one party socialist state for the foreseeable future. It will be the death of America as we know it.

    … “graduated with a Juris Doctor in 1964. After law school, Brown worked as a law clerk for California Supreme Court Justice Mathew Tobriner. Brown later went to study in Mexico and Latin America.

    Returning to California, Brown took the state bar exam and passed on his second attempt. Brown then settled in Los Angeles and joined the law firm of Tuttle & Taylor. In 1969, Brown ran for the newly created Los Angeles Community College Board of Trustees

    1971 California Secretary of State
    1975 Governor of California

    So Governor Brown has maybe 6 years of actually work in the private sector as a lawyer?

    Governor Brown is 1 step away from running for President. He actually ran for president in 1976 (13 years after graduating with a bachelor of arts degree in some unknown field.

    The Romans for all their flaws would never have made this man consul or dictator. They would never have appointed or elected him to anything more than to a city council.

    But since he cannot be president of the U.S., governor Moonbeam is going to be the President of the Republic of Soissons.

    He is going to do this by wittingly or not undermining the laws of the U.S.

Put simply- if you move to a new country and start doing exactly the same stuff you did in the place you left, you will turn your new home into your old home. If your old home was so bad you had to leave it why would you want to make here like there?

    The first thing illegal immigrants do wrong is violate the laws of their new home. So right off the bat they’re starting on the wrong foot. They are not changing to learn a new way to live that will breed success. Eventually they will make their new home into the same smelly armpit they couldn’t wait to leave. And there are many people here who are totally cool with that as long as they get to be in charge.
    That’s the real evil.

    Looks to me like under Governor Moonbeam the re-conquista is nearly complete. Can reunification with Mexico be far behind?

    This is beyond parody. Its way past justifiable. Thats flat out suicide for the entire nation. No country can survive that. None. This encourages people to cross the border, the border patrol will have to either let the masses through or even worse turn completely fascist. The only “rational” explanation I have for this is that this is a conspiracy to militarize the border police past anything sane, and allow them to intrude with checkpoints on the State level on the grounds that they have to “defend” the country.

    As someone who lives in Kalifornia (until the kids finish HS, the I leave), I don’t understand why anyone is complaining. The lib/dims own/run/control this state and they have for years. They openly scoff at Republicans and laugh at any idea that Republicans might win state-wide elections ever again, and with good reason: Despite the demonstrable results of pandering to illegals/drug users/criminals, they persist and the people continue to elect them to office. The state is bankrupt (Brown’s pronouncements aside, look at the hundreds of billions in unfunded debt this state has in the form of pension/health care benefits to retired government employees), the jails are overflowing to the point where Brown has been ordered to release criminals from prison by courts, and we have more than 1/3 of the nation’s welfare recipients. Kalifornian’s have done this to themselves and continue to do so.

    If there is any justice in the world, Democratic Assemblyman Luis Alejo,will be the first one hit by a licensed illegal alien with no car insurance.

    I hate it when the obvious is news. I try to forget the ghetto here in California. Six houses on my block the the Mexicans stand out like a sore thumb. AND THEY’RE FREAKING LOUD, TOO.

  • JacksonPearson

    If we had a decent USDOJ, they’d come after governor Jerry Brown and the whole California legislature for usurping federal laws. Lock the lot up. Plus, shut down every sanctuary city in the state.

    If you or I broke federal laws, we’d have the book thrown at us. Not so with democrats. Remember what Obama stated: Punish our enemies and reward our friends. Our meaning RATS!

  • joshuasweet

    Let them eat tacos then, stop all federal funding until they follow the Law Immigration is not a state level controlled law.

  • Abel

    This is a valid use of the state power to determine residency requirements and the benefits that go along with it. So long as Cali’s not eliminating benefits or penalizing for people based on any constitutional prohibited reason, it is good to go. Expanding residency privileges is definitely constitutional and totally a state’s right

  • Maxine Mathers

    You FU%IN MORON!!!! I can’t wait to leave this State! You INBRED, INEPT mut#%r f*(%er!!!!
    ALL THE ILLEGAL/DEAD BASTARDS THAT VOTED FOR UR A$$ need to get a lobotomy!

  • tom

  • Lynnz

  • Roderick Bateman

    Look at all this anti-whitism. In the 60′s, anti-whites forced ALL and ONLY white countries to bring in millions of non-whites. Then anti-whites forced ALL and ONLY white people to “integrate” or face consequences for being “naziswhowantokill6millionjews.” Now anti-whites are praising and counting down the days till ALL and ONLY white children are minorities and extinct EVERYWHERE. That makes it genocide. “Anti-racist” is a codeword for anti-white. /watch?v=lKDeyuM0-Og

  • Ruthie Smith

    Maybe all of the tax payers should quit their jobs and move to other States that still has a Governor with a brain, if American’s quit paying taxes, the State would shut down completely in 2 weeks. The illegals has ruined our welfare system by getting everything they can for free starting with OUR Welfare System, they are Moochers.

  • Jerry

    step up like Colorado did and recall the tards

  • bobfairlane

    They’re not “immigrants”. They don’t want to be part of this country. They want to part up this country.

    in a way this is a good thing, they will all stay in California for these benefits the governor is giving to criminals, they will bankrupt the state for sure, crime will go up, the neighborhoods will go down and then they can just give them the whole state, which of course they won’t want because who will then pay for it. this is insanity.

    not to worry, there is so much radiation in the California air from fukushimi that they will all get sick and die so keep them there. if you don’t think so, look it up. your government is hiding it from you. it reached cali within the first year and it has continued to get worse. I would hope you don’t eat the fish there!!!

    I live in CA, and just three years ago I was in Minnesota attending a family reunion. On my way to the reunion, I stopped at a yard sale and heard the people holding the sale speaking Spanish. I asked them where they were from, and they said they moved to MN from CA. I know there are other areas in the country where Hispanics are moving as well. But just saying that this seems to be a nationwide phenomena.

    • johnnygeneric

      They left CA because it is no longer sustainable and the poor are getting trampled on. Regardless of their citizenship.

  • Patriot_ll

    All our current California state government is doing is solidifying the Democratic position for the next couple of decades. Or, until there really is only the wealthy and the welfare. Anyone else will have moved to somewhere with a living climate that isn’t just sucking your money and way of life out of you.

  • jamessavik

    Democrats are getting pretty brazen about wanting those illegal immigrant voters. Hope they can afford all the socialist services they will cost.

  • DJones1964

    So breaking the law and being here illegally is not considered a serious offense? So what broken laws do they consider a serious offense?

  • Richard Casey

    They said, if it’s brown, flush it down!! He blamed Rose Bird last time and said he learned his lesson, he lied!! Still the Democrats put him back in office, now anyone can preform an abortion and now anybody from any country can vote in California, Sad, Sad days for America!!

  • Durrani LawFirm

    This is not done! Is there anyone that can explain to me that why instead of being deported, an illegal immigrant should get a driver’s license?
