CAPS eNews and Action

Is a terrible – and completely avoidable – tragedy combined with an outsider Presidential candidate what the media needs to finally start covering sanctuary cities?  The murder of Kate Steinle by a 7-felony, 5-times-deported illegal alien and Donald Trump's ineloquent remarks have brought our issue to the forefront.  You and I have long known that in addition to a multitude of other problems, sanctuary cities kill.  The Remembrance Project has been specifically covering murders by illegal aliens since 2009. 

What can you do?  Have you sent messages to your legislators to pass HR 1145/S 1640 to overrule sanctuary cities and Kate's Law to mandate 5-year sentences for deported illegal aliens?  Only sustained outrage by the so-called "silent minority" will make a difference.

Take Action Now – Kate's Law

In other news, your efforts are getting a foothold.  As the drought wages on, your legislators are beginning to realize that growth-at-all-costs might not be such a good idea after all.  Read on to help Governor Brown connect the next dot, sign the "End Birthright Citizenship" petition, protect American jobs at California utilities, find out how our presidents scored on the environment, and more.

Thank you for standing strong with CAPS.

How did your favorite presidents rate?

Which U.S. Presidents fought largely for America's environment and which against it?  This is ably answered by CAPS' Board Member Otis L. Graham, Jr., professor emeritus of history at the University of California, Santa Barbara, in his latest book, Presidents and the American Environment (University Press of Kansas, 2015).
