Since the California Legislature is on a hot streak regarding its successful introduction of illegal immigrant-friendly bills that Governor Jerry Brown signed into law, it’s decided to press for more. The strategy seems sound: Go for it, Brown won’t stand in our way!
|State Senator Ricardo Lara, Senate President Pro Tem Kevin de Leon and Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez all advocate for more alien entitlements.|
In 2013, the legislature won on driver’s licenses, the Trust Act, and permission for aliens to practice as attorneys. This time around, on April 7, Sacramento Democrats introduced a 10-bill package designed to accommodate aliens through enrollment in Medi-Cal (which failed last year), to add more ways to avoid detention and deportation, and make it easier to obtain visas for trafficking and sexual assault victims, as well as other benefits.
Rewarding aliens and ceaseless pandering to them encourages more illegal immigration which in turn means more people in a very overcrowded California, more environmental degradation, and more water consumption at a time when the state – four years into a severe drought – desperately needs to conserve, points that I made repeatedly in numerous media interviews I gave the day the bills were introduced. Read them here, here, here and here.
Unfortunately, the reporters didn’t include my strong suggestion that Brown and his Democratic allies promote bills like E-Verify that would help Californians, especially Hispanic Americans and other minorities. Instead of encouraging more illegal immigration, E-Verify would eliminate the jobs magnet that draws so many illegal immigrants to California.
